EA has launched Title Update 2 for FIFA 22. This update is massive and contains new features and bug fixes.

FIFA Ultimate Team

The penalty shootout kick order will now be decided by the Penalties (PEN) attribute. The said attribute determines a player’s accuracy when taking penalty kicks.

So, if the competitors share the same PEN attribute, the order will be determined by Shot Power and Finishing attributes.

Gameplay Changes

The AI has been improved in this update. Now, the CPU AI will likely commit more fouls during matches if you set the difficulty to Semi-Pro or higher.

This change will make things more exciting without being too unrealistic. But keep in mind that the opposing team will be more aggressive, so you have to bring your A-game every time you step on the field.

In Career Mode, the developers added new scenes for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League draws.

    • When players share the same Penalties Attribute, the Shot Power and Finishing Attributes will be used to determine the order.
