FIFA 22 Shapeshifters is the next promotion following Team of the Season, EA Sports confirmed through a loading screen in-game.
Shapeshifters, which first appeared in FIFA 20, is a promotion centered around positional changes and statistical boosts. Shapeshifters had taken place before Team of the Season in FIFA 20, but this time it's the first promotion post-TOTS leading into the summer. A strange choice considering fans are anticipating a Summer Heat style promotion and FUTTIES. But, perhaps this is just a buffer between TOTS and those higher end events.
FIFA 22 Shapeshifters Promotion Announced
Shapeshifters needs to include both players who were left out of Team of the Season and include notable boosts to make them relevant at this point in the game cycle. Position changes are always welcomed considering they open up squad building possibilities.
But, with how many high-end, endgame cards are available after TOTS, these items need to be relevant in the meta. And, EA Sports needs to continue to innovate the on the reward side. One initiative, which has been leaked by Fut Sheriff and already added to the game, is a daily SBC that rewards players with a guaranteed Shapeshifters item if players complete each challenge. A fun login requirement that should get those who are still playing on the game.
FIFA 22 Shapeshifters kicks off Friday, June 17.
