The Borussia Dortmund goal-machine is now deemed to be a big-time player in EA Sports' football game and that in turn means greater focus has been placed on the way he plays and moves.
As we have seen on many an occasion, the 6 ft 4 striker almost gallops towards goal at a frightening speed. He smashed the Bundesliga speed record for 2020/21 when he ran at 36.04km/h against Stuttgart.
In FIFA 22, gamers will be able to perfect replicate that devastating run in behind as gameplay footage shows.
As part of a presentation on Tuesday, FIFA gameplay director Kantcho Doskov did a piece on Haaland's running.
The clip featured him dissecting a situation where Haaland darted in behind the backline and finished past Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid after receiving a pass from Marco Reus.
"The other thing you'll notice about this clip is the way Haaland runs," Doskov said.
"We have a star-specific locomotion for Erling Haaland. He is a big-time player and a young superstar.
"The way he runs is so unique, he's kind of got this little bit of a hunch in his posture and big strides."
Haaland's face and long hair has also been updated, while he's also got an all-new celebration for when he finds the net.
The most significant change on FIFA this year is the brand-new 'Hypermotion technology' for next-gen consoles.
Previously, players would come to the studio with optical motion but for the first time ever, the American gaming giant have used Xsens motion capture suits using 22 professional players in their natural environment.
The experiment resulted in 4,000 new animations when it comes to defending, shooting, passing and dribbling, and subsequently, smoother transitions and football behaviours.
FIFA 21 is released worldwide on October 1.
