FIFA 22 coming to EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate next week

EA has announced FIFA 22 will be joining its EA Play subscription service, as well as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass, next Thursday, 23rd June. FIFA 22, if you haven’t been keeping track, brought some solid improvements to the long-running football series when it launched last year, but its wins were, once again, overshadowed by what Eurogamer’s Wesley Yin-Poole called its “morally bankrupt monetisation” in his review.

Still, subscribers to EA Play (which is also included as part of an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass membership) will be able to revel in FIFA 22’s footie action on PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC starting next week if those so choose. Currently, EA Play only offers a 10-hour game trial of FIFA 22.

EA recently announced plans for a FIFA 22 cross-play test for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia, giving players the chance to join friends or challenge rivals during Online Seasons and Online Friendlies regardless of platform. Expect that cross-play pool to widen further when FIFA 22 comes to EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate next next Thursday, 23rd June.
