EA Sports revealed FIFA 22 details on July 11 getting fans excited for the next release in the series.

Paris Saint-Germain and French star Kylian Mbappe will be the cover star for the second year in a row. It was a down year for Mbappe considering PSG and France failed to win Ligue 1 and the Euro 2020 championship respectively this year.

Amid the Ultimate Team news which will be covered shortly, release dates were confirmed. Those who pre-order a special edition will be able to play Sept. 27 while the game's retail release date is scheduled for Oct. 1.

Ultimate Team news always grabs the headlines when it comes to new FIFA announcements, and this year is no different.

First off, a new card type was announced. "FUT Heroes have unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment, providing a green Club link to any player within the same league as well as the usual nation link, giving you new ways to build your dream squad and recreate some of football's most famous moments in FUT 22," EA Sports said on the FIFA 22 website.

This new card type acts as a pseudo-Icon that should massively shake up FUT once they release. Some of the players announced include Mario Gomez for the Bundesliga, Clint Dempsey for the MLS and more.
