In less than 24 hours' time, FIFA 22 will be available to play all around the world.
However, some PS5 players who have had early access to the game are concerned about one particular feature- the quality of the pitch texture when taking penalties and freekicks.
Photos shows how the landscape blurs and darkens when a player is just about to strike the ball. Whilst some believe this is on purpose, others think the makers of the game have had a shocker.
"Thought my TV was bugging out for a second," a gamer commented on a thread about the issue on Reddit.
"The blurry effect feels intentional," another argued. "Like it's supposed to make the situation feel more intense.
"Given their track record, I wouldn't put such an obvious bug past them, if it's not intentional, but I kinda like it."
"I found that the grass on the pitch is extremely washed out," a fellow gamer remarked. "Almost like some texture is missing. Comparing it to the PS4 version, where it looks much nicer in detail and texture. This has to be an obvious bug/mistake."
This is not the only glitch people have discovered whilst playing the game. Frustrations have been aired abouthow easy it is to score from goal kicks and about how some players 'randomly disappear' in the middle of an attack.
How is anything like this acceptable in a game that comes out using the same engine, with minor changes, every single year?- RonTheDon :flag_ie: (@RonTheDon001) September 28, 2021
I'd love if EA had some proper competition or took 2 years to build a game with some soul in it.

The makers of FIFA had hoped these problems would be averted by their use of new 'hypermotion technology', which aims to capture players' behaviours more closely than ever before.
Let's see if the powers that be are successful and these glitches are just that tomorrow, when everyone can get their hands on the latest version of the game.
