FIFA 22 Career Mode Details and Trailer Revealed

The latest Pitch Notes has provided details on the new features coming to FIFA 22 Career Mode. Senior Game Designer, Alex Constantinescu, goes over the significant improvements to both Manager Career and Player Career. This year, there are many more ways to customize your Manager Career experience. As for the Player Career, it features a completely revamped experience with complete control over your Pro’s development and career progression.

Fans can create their own Club in Manager Career Mode, complete with kit, crest and stadium customization, which can be changed at the beginning of each season. Stadium Customization is also available for existing clubs that don’t have a licensed stadium assigned in the game.

In Player Career the team has added the ability to come into the match from the bench, delivering the experience of a young prospect trying to crack the starting lineup.

There’s plenty more in the Pitch Notes and trailer below. Also make sure to tune in tomorrow as Kevin shares his thoughts on FIFA 22 Career Mode. If you missed it earlier, you can read his thoughts on FIFA 22 Pro Clubs.

  1. From the video it looks like "Stadium Customization" is choosing one of the generic stadiums that have been carried over from PS3/Xbox 360 era and we can paint the seats a new color lol. That's weak man. The squad generator looks pretty cool though and it's nice that we can update the kits after every season.
    Player career looks pretty sick as well. Overall, just some small updates this year.

    From the video it looks like "Stadium Creator" is choosing one of the generic stadiums that have been carried over from PS3/Xbox 360 era and we can paint the seats a new color lol. Hope it's more than that. That's embarrassing if that's all we can do.

    Yeh, I'm glad to have this feature and plan to play it but it looks really disappointing as far as depth goes. It's also pretty disappointing we can't add sponsors, even if they were made up like on F1, it would look a whole lot better and provide some more depth if your club earned money from those sponsors based on your performance or you can get new sponsors that pay more each season. The stadium editor does indeed look like you just choose from the stadiums already there. There are a lot to choose from I'm sure but come on, if it takes you this long to implement a mode that people have been asking for then you should go all out. It's better than nothing I guess but still just sad that once again EA underwhelms me.
    After feeling pretty hyped for FIFA 22, this is the first big disappointment for me. Fans of Player Career Mode may have reason to be excited but it's a big letdown for those of us primarily interested in Manager CM.
    Looks like if you play with a real team that has a licensed stadium, CM is essentially unchanged. Create a Club, which aside from the stadium editor might not be my thing, looks to be a decent addition but how much does it matter when so much of the experience is shallow and full of bugs?
    Guess I'm holding out hope for a solid number of bug fixes and optimizations. At a minimum I hope they improve the tedious mechanics around training players for sharpness and they better not make me play those awful training sessions at the start of each save again!

    Yeah the squad creator part of team creation is cool, but not much else is looking that great. I don't understand how they added these notifications for when your manager/players achieve certain milestones, but they somehow managed to NOT add a career stat tracking screen for players... It's 2021 and I still can't see what my players did in any previous season. It's crazy.

    It’s still early bro, I bet my dollar that there is a lot more features they didn’t discuss. I think this deep dive was all about create a club.
    I’m feeling like you, but I’m just gonna withhold my opinion till release you know?
    The create a club sounds fun though.

    I used to think the way you do, but there's 0 track record of FIFA devs hiding Career changes until release. After years and years of minimal improvements they brag about every little thing they do in these articles. If it's not in the article, don't expect it for 22.

    This. It literally says “Deep Dive”. I don’t mean to be negative, but you can get a good grasp of what they added from looking at what’s available in the screen shots of the menus. Again better than nothing, but a whole lot less than what I hoped for.
    It does seem like they added a good bit with the player career though if you like that.

    This is where I am.
    I wasn't expecting much for the create a club and customisable stadium but I'm still somehow disappointed. I wasn't expecting MLB The Show stadium creator but I was at least hoping we could choose stands individually. Single tier behind one goal, double tier behind the other, etc.
    I was hoping you might be able to customise stadiums for real teams too so you could build up a smaller teams stadium if you get them to the premier league, etc.
    Gameplay better be excellent this year or I probably won't be buying.

    Yes exactly about stadium, I expected way more. Also for me player career lis bit disappointing, just bit of polish but for the rest it seems the same

    Omg it’s true, you can’t even add sponsors 😢they should have just put creation Centre back, or system which pes has so you can import kits

    Couldn't sworn I read somewhere that you would be able to edit stadiums for real teams as long as they're one of the generics. Because I came away thinking that at least when I do an RTG with a real lower league team I'd still at least have the stadium editor feature...

    You are correct, it’s in the deep dive. You can edit and update any non real stadium in the game. Which is cool.
    Now, all I need is the All Clubs list to come out. With the light new features, if they add 4 or 5 new leagues. I’d be much happier

    Then you would definitely lose that dollar because if you expect anything else from EA that wasn't mentioned in that deep dive, then you don't know EA very well do you.
    I would gladly take a CM with half the features but with good gameplay.
    Especially if they took out training. I just remember how broken and OP it was if you used the system to make a dozen world class players and in 21 they even spammed the calendar with training sessions. (Don't shoot me if I'm wrong, I didn't really play it for more than a couple of hours as I quickly found out that 21 ... was not for me).
    Updating the kits sounds cool, not sure about creating a fantasy team as it would look odd when every other team is real. Maybe youtubers will love it.

    The only things you can update is seating color, goal nets and field patterns. From this only the seating color is new but this can’t be seen during a match. I don’t understand why they just didn’t copy the stadium builder from my club last year.

    Will player career finally have contracts and interest from other teams or will you still need to ask for a transfer or loan?

    In FIFA 20 I had soooooo many saves because either forcing a move or someone putting in a bid for you was soooooo damn hard.
    I went from Western United (in the A-League) to RB Salzburg (Halaand’s heir apparent ) to Juventus, well “Piedmont Calcio” and I swear I must have restarted my Player CM 100 times

    It doesn't look like you can change the actual stadium though, just the aesthetics. If I take Salford up to the Premier League, I was hoping I'd be able to add stands and expand the stadium.

    Yes exactly, it’s quite a lazy attempt. The only new thing you can change is seat color which you can’t see anyway during the game. It baffles me why career mode doesn’t get the same features as in fut with the stadium builder.
