In regards to the "new addition" to the franchise, many fans are speculating that EA could announce an Online Career Mode for FIFA 22, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

For the EA Play main event, EA are promising "real excitement, focusing on games that are coming out soon rather than in the all-to-distant future"

"The show is a fast-paced one, coming in around 40 minutes and will feature what’s next for games like Battlefield 2042 and Apex Legends," EA revealed on their official website.


"You’ll also see the first gameplay for Lost in Random, featuring explosive dice battles, time-freezing tactics and card collection.

"We’ll have a couple other games to highlight as well, but for those, you’ll just have to wait and see."
