One question on the lips of football video game lovers worldwide is whether FIFA 22 will feature crossplay between the different consoles and platforms?
This feature has been absent from previous versions of the game, and fans are always calling for its introduction into future editions.
Sporting News looks into whether fans of all platforms will be able to play against each other.
Will FIFA 22 support crossplay between different consoles and platforms?
Like FIFA 21, it appears FIFA 22 will not support cross-platform play, according to a statement released by developers EA.
The statement reads:
“You will be able to match up with and against other players based on the version of FIFA 22 that you are playing.
“If you are playing the PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 22 you will be able to match up and play with and against other players who are playing on the same version of FIFA 22, regardless of whether they are playing on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5.
“The same is true for the Xbox One version of FIFA 22, where you will be able to match up and play with and against other players who are playing the same version on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S.
“If you are playing the PlayStation 5 version of FIFA 22, you will only be able to match up with and play against other players who are playing the PlayStation 5 version.”
In short, PS4 and PS5 users can only match in online games if they are both using the PS4 version, with the same applying between Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S gamers.
