Any fans of FIFA 22 that are using a PS5, Xbox Series X and S or Google Stadia will be able to test cross-play functionality very soon.
EA is finally making moves to bring cross-play to FIFA 22, though it is still in the testing phase.
This comes after the news that FIFA 23 could finally unite players with cross-play support, suggesting that EA is attempting to make this a long-running feature in its game.
It’s important to note that cross-play in FIFA 22 will be limited to Online Seasons and Online Friendlies game modes, so you will be able to play against friends on other platforms.
EA is keeping the number of modes that will have cross-play testing small, with the aim of limiting the number of new issues that could crop up in the game.
Users will be able to enable or disable cross-play by going into the menu in the bottom right-hand corner of the game’s main menu. You can also opt-in or out in the Matchmaking Options menu.
When players are engaged in a cross-platform online match, indicators will appear that notify the player. Other than that, EA is claiming that it should have no other impact on that playing experience or the gameplay mechanics.
EA has not given any dates for when the testing process will launch, or if it will eventually become a regular feature in the game. We will be sure to update this article when that information becomes clear.
