What is the HyperMotion Technology in FIFA 22?

Simply put, HyperMotion is a new technology that allows the game engine to generate realistic animations, which results in significant improvement in the simulation of ball control, player contacts, and most of the off-ball animations.

Here is how EA describes the way HyperMotion tech works:

Xsens suits enable motion capture from 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity for the first time. The resulting unprecedented volume of high-quality real-human movement data powers how both individuals and teams move across FIFA 22.

With the addition of Machine Learning to the data above, the game engine is able to write new animations appropriate to the interactions in the pitch, which according to EA, delivers an organic football realism.

Keep in mind that the HyperMotion tech will only be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia versions of FIFA 22, which cost players $69.99.

FIFA 22 will be available on October 1, 2021, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC.
