FIFA 22, the latest instalment in EA Sports' burgeoning football gaming franchise, finally has a launch date - and you can pre-order it right now.
It took a while before the official release date was known, however, gamers can now get themselves poised and ready to bag themselves a copy of FIFA 22 ahead of its unveiling in October later this year.
And for those impatient gamers, EA are, once again, giving players the chance to play the game four days early by pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition, but when do you need to do it by?
The reveal, much to the delight of avid fans, revealed a number of new gameplay features including ‘HyperMotion’ technology, described by EA as “the biggest animation refresh in FIFA history”.
The publisher also confirmed a number of new gameplay features in the trailer including player humanisation, composed ball control, true ball physics, explosive sprint, and many more.
With the game set to be bigger and more realistic than ever before, we’ve got you covered with all the details you need about EA’s upcoming release.
To put it simply, you can pre-order FIFA 22 whenever you like, however, you may have already missed some exclusive content.
Those that pre-ordered the game before Wednesday, 11 August, would have bagged themselves an untradeable FUT Heroes player item in Ultimate Team as part of a pre-order bonus package.

FIFA 22 is set for a worldwide release on Friday, 1 October for PC, PS4, PS5 Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch.
For the first time since the launch of FIFA 15, there are only two editions available - the Standard and Ultimate editions.
If you pre-order the latter, you can start playing the game from Monday, 27 September.
Gamers who pre-order the standard edition will be able to play from its worldwide release date on 1 October.
Another deciding factor between ordering the standard or ultimate edition is that on PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be unable to upgrade to the next-gen version of the game for free with the standard edition.
