As always, I’ll be be preordering the game. I like football too much and this is my most played game every year, so I always make my money worth. I’ve played more than 300 hours of FIFA 21 when combining both Xbox One and Series X versions!
I’ve played both PES 2020 and 2021 when they hit Game Pass, but my God, what an awful game…
I’m kind of glad I’m all digital now since FIFA covers have reached a whole other level of shittiness.
If they keep the Preview Packs for FIFA 22 I might give Ultimate Team another try next year. I dropped it for Online Seasons after noticing I was raging a lot.
The price hike to $70 and lack of Smart Delivery is awful, though.
