FIFA 22 Beta is released in August 2021 for a selection of players from the US and UK.
The main purpose of the FIFA 22 Beta is to allow players to test the game. This way, they can give feedback about potential anomalies and suggest changes. The Beta is also used to promote the game itself.
This test version is exclusive to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox X|S and XBox One. It won’t be available for PC, Nintendo Switch consoles or mobile platforms.
The following game modes are available in the FIFA 22 Beta:
2 Pro Clubs;
3 Career Mode;
4 Ultimate Team;
5 VOLTA FOOTBALL.
Players selected for the FIFA 22 Beta will receive an invitation to the Kick-Off and, at least, one of the other game modes. EA usually add testers to the mode they have played most. In the first days, they will only have the chance to play the game modes assigned to them. However, all game modes will be unlocked on August 23.
The FIFA 22 Beta is only available in English. That’s one of the reasons why only players from countries in which English is the native language are invited.
The file you have to download is around 36 Gb, no matter the game modes you have selected.
Generally speaking, the players and ratings used in the FIFA 22 closed Beta are the ones from FIFA 21. Even if you find differences, it doesn’t mean that those ratings will be used on the final game release.
No progress made on the FIFA 22 Beta will carry over to the final game.
Selected FIFA players in the US and the UK, who opted in to get EA emails, will get an email at their inbox that’s linked to their EA account. Because of limited space in the Closed Beta, not everyone will get an email with a code. The email will include a FIFA 22 Closed Beta access code for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One.
There are a few basic requirements to play the FIFA 22 Beta:
1 You must be, at least, 18 years old;
2 Your console’s account must be from the UK or North America;
3 You must have a PlayStation or Xbox console (FIFA 22 Beta is not available for other platforms);
4 You must have played FIFA 21 regularly;
5 You’ll need to have an Internet connection;
6 You’ll need to accept the User Agreement and the FIFA 22 Beta Agreement;
7 You’ll need to have an active subscription to either Xbox Live Gold or PS Plus, depending which platform you’re playing on.
If you fulfilled these requirements, then you have chances to be invited.
Only players who were invited will be able to play the FIFA 22 Beta. EA will send two batches of codes: the first on the second week of August and the other one two weeks later. To know the exact dates, please look at the top of the page.
Stay alert to your mailbox, the one you use for your FIFA account, to see if you were invited or not. Pay attention to all folders, including spam. If you’ve changed your email address or no longer have access to the one you used to create your account, swap emails from one account to another.
EA sends all Beta communication from firstname.lastname@example.org. Add this address as a safe sender to receive emails. Check your spam, junk, or social folder for any missed email messages from EA@e.ea.com. Don’t trust in any emails sent from a different domain or share your credentials.
You will need a direct invite in order to try out the FIFA 22 Beta. You cannot buy it from someone. A Beta code is created just for a specific player and it can’t be transferred or shared with another player. It won’t work in other accounts. If you found invitations for sale, you should know that they are not legit because invitations are always associated with the Origin account of the owner.
By accepting the invitation, players are obliged to fulfil the agreement of the closed beta, which includes a confidentiality term. It basically forces the participants to not divulge any information regarding the game outside of the forum created for this purpose. Live streaming and image capturing of Closed Beta gameplay are against the rules.
Those who don’t fulfil the confidentiality term will lose access to the current beta and to any other that’s released afterwards. Other measures can be taken for more serious cases.
