Key notes

  • Serious issues have emerged for fans playing the next-gen version of FIFA 22.
  • FIFA 22 is a trial version before the official release scheduled for early October.
  • The graphics so far are fuzzy and blurry.

Fans who have played FIFA 22 through EA play service are not amused at all. The version of the games available on Xbox Series S appears to have a number of issues.

Trial period

So far, players on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Playstation 5 accessed the 10-hour trial before the official release scheduled for October 1, 2021. Once the 10-hour period elapses, players will no longer access the game, but their progress will be saved and carried over once the game is active again upon release, subject to making a purchase.

Disappointment galore

Xbox Series S players have a mouthful of complaints so far. They have taken their frustrations to social media platforms and forums to let their fury known. Users are reporting graphical issues such as fuzzy and blurry images that are preventing them from playing the game. 

A Twitter user went ahead to say it was a disaster.

The users are posting numerous screenshots on the forums and groups to express their frustrations. They are collectively calling for a patch that will remedy the situation.

One user seemed so frustrated that they cancelled their pre-order.

Given the reaction so far, it is critical to promptly fix this issue, or the official release of FIFA 22 risks being a flop.
