EA confirms the release of FIFA Mobile 22 on January 18

Many changes in gameplay and game modes!

Finally, the anticipated announcement has come, after months of postponing the reset and extending the ongoing season, EA announces the arrival of the FIFA Mobile 22. With the completion of the Preseason Freeze Event, EA officially wraps up the current season of FIFA Mobile 21. But as one door closes, another one opens, so here is it FIFA Mobile 22. Recently EA announced via their official social media accounts that FIFA Mobile 22 will officially release in January 2022. Besides the promising reviews of FIFA Mobile 22 beta, players are now more excited than ever!

FIFA Mobile 21 Season Reset

As the release of FIFA Mobile 22 approaches, it means the current season will be reset. The Reset is the transition from season to season, FIFA Mobile 21 will become FIFA Mobile 22. The game will see a major facelift, all the events will change, like any game, it’s just a new model of what we already have been playing. And like any other game with a new year model, you start at square one, the same as all of your fellow gamers. It’s the reset.

Legacy Team

And this is where things go bad. EA dropped the bombshell during the Freeze event that there won’t be any Legacy mode in the new season. According to them, the Legacy mode is not compatible with the new game version. This means that the team you are currently using will remain until the new season begins, but you will no longer be able to view or play with it as a Legacy Team in the new season. 

Now it’s both good and bad. As anyways Legacy campaign every season wasn’t the most popular one among the players. They would eventually finish it and forget it within the first two months of launch. The major missing will be you won’t be able to view your team’s OVR or photo from yesteryears. Your entire roster will be gone in a snap and you will be no different than a new player logging into the game for the first time.

However, we will be still be receiving incentives and rewards in the new season based on the OVR of your final team. Needless to say, the higher your Active Lineup’s OVR, the better your rewards! It’s a bummer, a definite big bummer. People making themed squads till now won’t be happy knowing they can’t even view their yesteryear’s squads into the new season.

Graphics Update

For the first time ever, FIFA Mobile can now be played in up to 60 FPS. As we already know, FPS is how many frames (images) are displayed each second. The higher the FPS, the smoother and more responsive the game will seem. The higher frame rate means you can visually see more detail on screen, as information is rendered more frequently.

Settings for general Graphics and Resolution can be edited to upgrade your in-game visual experience. Depending on your device’s specs, you may not be able to select the higher-end settings. It’s worth noting that higher graphic settings will drain battery life faster.

Gameplay improvements in FIFA Mobile 22

With the new season of FIFA Mobile 22 on the horizon, EA has shared their update blog on the slew of gameplay improvements and changes coming to the new season. These include Team Management, VS Attack, Head to Head, Stamina, and Skill Move UIs, among many other new features.

VS Attack

The newly improved VSA has undergone many improvements and everyone’s favorite 90 second mode is now more faster, fairer, and more fun. The same improvements apply to League vs League attacks as well!

  • Kickoffs are removed from VS Attack. Your first chance will now start in a basic central position just outside the box.
  • Corner kicks are removed from VS Attack. Yes you heard that right! Shots or deflections that go off a defender will now result in your next chance being queued up. This has no effect on the quality of your next possession.
  • Counter attacks no longer exist. Expect to see more Basic Chances if the OVR difference is large enough.
  • We made improvements to how quickly chances end if dispossessed by a defender. AI defenders will also clear the ball faster than before.

Team Management (Set Piece Takers and Captain)

Take full control of your squad’s substitutions, in-game positions, and set piece takers with new team management features. Additionally, Flex your managerial muscle! Choose the right players to take your set pieces and take full advantage of any dead ball situation.

Yes now you can manage Set Piece Takers and Captain from your Team Management screen. In the My Team menu, choose your set piece takers and your captain. The following can be selected:

FIFA Mobile beta set pieces
  • Penalty Taker
  • Short Free Kick
  • Long Free Kick
  • Left Corner Taker
  • Right Corner Taker
  • Captain

Set piece takers and captain choices will affect VS Attack, Head to Head, League vs. League, and AI Matches. The players that participate in various Skill Games are not affected by these choices.

Substitutions and Live Position Changes

Substitutions are now live in the game! After Bring on a pacey winger to threaten your opponent’s tired defenders or swap out your exhausted box-to-box midfielder with new substitutions! Set up to seven subs in your My Team. You can also toggle the Suggested Sub option to receive automatic subs suggestions during your match.

The image is real, your eyes are not being deceived. FIFA Mobile 22 will indeed offer in-match substitutions! There’s also the option to move players around to switch positions if you need, and all this is done whilst the game is going on in the background as well. For example, bring your towering Center Back up to Striker for a final stoppage time goal push. All players except Goalkeepers can be moved around your formation.

A timer will begin in the top right corner with the suggested sub, which can be cancelled if you do not wish to make the sub. You can now make on-the-fly substitutions by pulling up the live sub menu. The menu can be brought up at any point in a match without needing to pause. Set your bench of seven subs before kickoff, and make up to three subs during the course of the match. 


Along with Substitutions, as an added caveat comes Stamina. Stamina is a new feature added that brings a new level of gameplay authenticity. Players now have a stamina charge that will deplete naturally over the course of a match and based on certain actions.

Player stamina is shown in two locations: individual player icon (triangle) and in the substitution menu. Players have a stamina attribute which can be found on the Player Bio page (not viewable while in a match). The stamina attribute affects how quickly a player loses stamina as well as how quickly they can recover. The players’ stamina will drop regularly throughout a match but the following actions will further cause a faster loss of stamina:

  • Performing Skill Moves
  • Performing Slide Tackles
  • Using Press Marking
  • Using 2nd Defender

When a player reaches low stamina levels during a match, passing and shooting accuracy may be negatively affected, as well as skill move effectiveness. At near-zero stamina levels, sprint speed will be reduced. Therefore, keeping track of player stamina is key to winning matches, so you’ll want to manage your substitutions wisely.

Skill Moves

Skill Moves are an absolute necessity for any player. If you’re an experienced player, you know how important skill moves are for creating space and getting past defenders. This season they caught us completely off-guard. EA introduced double skill moves per player ahead of the release of FIFA Mobile 22.

They’ve taken that a step further by adding a huge 5 skill moves per player, and that’s not all. While 1 of them is essentially “built-in” to the card, the other 4 can be customised in the Team Skill moves section as well. The 6 new skill moves are:

  • Drag Back Spin
  • Open Up Fake Shot
  • Lateral Heel to Heel
  • Big Lane Change
  • Flair Rainbow
  • Feint and Exit
Skill moves in FIFA Mobile 22 Beta

With this comes an additional feature Team Skill Moves! It is a new feature that lets you assign skill moves to different swipe directions. Choose the skill moves you want for left, right, up, and down swipes based on what works best for your playing style. Unlock more skill moves and test them out in a practice match!

All players now have a 1 to 5-star rating assigned to them, which determines what skill moves they can perform. For example, a 4-star skill player can only perform 1 to 4-star skill moves, but not a 5-star skill move. All players will still have a regular tap skill move that is personal to them.

Additionally, with a touch of realism comes the Consecutive Skill Move Error. Using back-to-back skill moves is now much more difficult in matches. If you chain multiple skill moves, it will affect player dribbling error and dribbling speed. This means that there is a progressively greater chance of losing the ball after consecutive skill moves. This affects all skill moves, regardless of order or type.

New Display HUD

With the release of a new season of FIFA Mobile 22, comes a new scoreboard look and layout to gameplay. Here’s what’s new:

FIFA Mobile 22 Beta Gameplay
  • Substitution Menu
  • Defensive, Balanced, Attacking mentality is now added to AI Matches
  • Camera Angle Button (4 options)
  • Ping Connectivity Rating in Head to Head and VS Attack
  • Team Logos & Score showing on the pitch during kickoffs
  • Emote Messages

Other Gameplay Improvements

Additionally, EA is also bringing the following gameplay developments with FIFA Mobile 22:

  • Improved ball retention by defenders when making a successful standing tackle. This was accomplished by reducing the distance a ball travels after a well-timed standing tackle. This does not affect slide tackles.
  • Shooting in general is faster and more accurate than the current season.
  • Shooting with a full power bar has a higher chance of missing the net.

So here is our advice, embrace the reset, plan for the reset, take it for what it truly is – a chance to refresh the game. Renew your interest and start over with a plethora of new tasks to undertake. Remember how much fun it was when FIFA Mobile 21 came out and you had Seasons to do and the Gullit and Beckham Campaigns.

Remember your first run through division rivals in both VSA and Head2Head and the fight to build a squad full of gold players, with gradually elite players. and the joy of achieving your first master. How satisfying it was, well that’s all about to happen again. Therefore see it’s a good thing, as long as your glass is half full. We will be sharing all the news about the new upcoming features and events in FIFA Mobile 22 as it releases. So keep checking this place here and stay tuned!
