Revolution in FIFA: players of PlayStation and Xbox will be able to compete

Some players have been waiting for this for a long time: soon FIFA 22 will have cross-platform. EA has just announced the launch of a test program.

In a press release published on May 2, 2022, Electronic Arts indicates that it is launching a crossplay test in FIFA 22. The future EA Sports FC, after years of ignoring this request from players, has finally decided to make the match possible. between a PlayStation owner and an Xbox owner. At first, only next generation consoles are affected. Stadia, Google’s cloud gaming service, will also allow players to compete with Sony and Microsoft consoles.

PC players are still excluded

PS5, Xbox Series and Stadia players will be able to meet in “seasonal” and friendly matches in the “near future” as EA does not name a date. The cross-platform option can be turned off if you don’t want to mix with others, even if it doesn’t make sense. More choices means faster loading times as there will be more opponents.

In addition to being able to play with anonymous people, you will have the option to invite those who are in another system. Know that in this case you will know if the person you are facing is on a different platform than yours thanks to a certain indicator.

In their press release, EA oddly doesn’t mention PC players. It is likely that they will be excluded from the crossplay system, as only the latest consoles and Stadia are eligible for the “next generation” version of FIFA today. Perhaps the next version will allow them to play with others.
