FIFA 22 launches this week, on Friday, October 1, but players with Early Access are running into game-breaking bugs.
EA Play subscribers and pre-ordered FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition were granted early access to the game.
But players are reporting all kinds of bugs, from fairly innocuous ones to bigger issues that are affecting the game.
One Reddit user posted a player image (above) entitled “Skinny arms are still an issue in FIFA 22.”
But a bug posted on Twitter has caused even more of a backlash against EA.
“How is anything like this acceptable in a game that comes out using the same engine, with minor changes, every single year?” The tweet accompanying the brief clip also reads.
The video shows two players disappearing from the screen as soon they come in contact with the ball.
The worst part is that the two players disappear from the video after they attempt to head the ball towards the goalkeeper.
The goal is open, and the AI kicks in the ball with Thanos-Esque magic.
There also appear to be a server issue based on another users tweet, and a few people on the Reddit and Twitter threads are contemplating cancelling their pre-orders.
There will no doubt be a day-one patch, which should address any bugs that were discovered before release.
EA hasn’t yet responded, but we’ll keep an eye out to see the patch notes.
