Electronic Arts has announced that the PC version of FIFA 22 will not support the new HyperMotion technology due to accessibility. This means that the PC version of FIFA 22 will be based on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Aaron McHardy, senior producer of the FIFA series, claims that EA Sports opted not to include HyperMotion tech on PC to ensure that the game would be accessible to most PC players, if the PC version of FIFA 22 were based on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of the game it would “have left a lot of people out in the cold not being able to play the game”.

Here’s what Aaron McHardy had to say:

When we looked at what generation to put the PC game on, we looked at our fans and what capabilities they had with the hardware they have. We have that information to understand what the power of the PCs out there in the world are. When we looked at that, in order to run the gen five game, our min spec would have been at a spot that would have left a lot of people out in the cold not being able to play the game.

Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11-versu-11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology to deliver the most realistic, fluid and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia, unlocking the raw emotion, passion and physicality of the world’s game.

HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, Electronic Arts’ proprietary machine learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch. Whether it’s a shot, pass or cross, HyperMotion transforms how players move on and off the ball.

The new game also offers deep and innovative features across other parts of gameplay and our most popular modes including Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs and FIFA Ultimate Team. Fans can expect more consistency and distinct personalities between the posts with a complete goalkeeper system rebuild, an all-new Create a Club experience in Career Mode, reimagined gameplay in VOLTA FOOTBALL, and the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes, completely new items that represent the stories and glory of cult players and fan favorites.
