FIFA Mobile 22 mid-season update

FIFA World Cup 2022 gamemode

EA is releasing the FIFA World Cup 2022 gamemode in its mid-season update to honor the forthcoming athletic event, similar to the famous FIFA World Cup 2018 gamemode from back in FIFA Mobile 18. In the FIFA World Cup 2022 Mode, players can feel the thrill of competing against their favorite countries.

The 32 real qualifying National Teams, including Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, and Spain, are all playable by users. All 32 National Teams that have qualified for the forthcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 as well as the 15 National Teams who just missed out will be included in the World Cup tournament format.

The World Cup commentary, national team uniforms, match balls, and even real venues (Al Bayt and Lusail) will all be available! The game will also receive a comprehensive visual and user interface update, providing a brand-new user interface with a FIFA World Cup 2022 theme (UI).

Introducing the all-new advanced Passing mechanism

New gameplay mechanics and strategies, such as the new Advanced Passing, have been implemented by EA in the FIFA Mobile 22 mid-season update. With the new Advanced Passing, players may plan crucial trigger runs, discover the space to create opportunities in small gaps with dink passes, and penetrate opponents’ defenses with strong driven deliveries.

  • Dinked Ground Pass: Double Tap the Pass button
  • Dinked Through Pass: Double Tap the Through button
  • Driven Ground Pass: Press the Pass button and Swipe Left
  • Driven Lob Pass: Press the Pass button and Swipe Right
  • Trigger Run: Press the Through button and Swipe Down

The Driven Passes have already become very popular from the recently concluded limited beta of FIFA Mobile 22, even though the Dinked Passes might not be in the meta. If you want to pull off a swift counter and get to the opponent’s goal in a few quick passes, the Driven Passes can show to be quite useful in H2H.

In the coming days, defending against Driven Ground and Through Passes will undoubtedly become challenging. Run to a player who is close by using the Trigger Run trigger so they can sprint forward and receive your ball. You have the option of playing right up to him or cleverly using him as your Dummy Runner to outwit the defense of your opponent.

Roster Database Update

The much-needed and eagerly anticipated base players roster upgrade is included in FIFA Mobile 22’s mid-season release. The player database will finally be updated to reflect the most recent transfers that took place during the 2022 summer transfer window.

The base players that are currently present in the player’s inventory will also be modified in accordance with new and existing clubs, team uniforms, skill upgrades, stats, and even OVR. It should be emphasized that the updated roster and modifications won’t affect any former event players; instead, they will only impact base players.

New and Updated Kits and Crests

It goes without saying that updating for a new season, or midseason, in this case, is never possible without brand-new and modernized uniforms. Players will therefore be able to outfit their teams with the new club shirts for 2022–2023 as well as the new crests and uniforms for the National Team thanks to the new FIFA Mobile 22 mid-season update!

Updated Commentary for the FIFA World Cup 2022

FIFA Mobile also brings an updated commentary along with this new update. The game introduced new in-game commentary, especially for the FIFA World Cup 2022. New commentators have been added to the game including the fan favorite Stewart Robson for English and Daniele Adani for Italian.

New UI and Look

Additionally, there have been five new songs added to the list of FIFA Mobile Soundtracks with the latest update.
