The 2021 edition of the massively popular FIFA video game series, FIFA 22 by EA Sports, features a vast array of new gameplay and of course graphical improvements.
The changes are most notable on next-gen consoles the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Early 2022 EA officially stated that over 9 million copies of FIFA 22 were sold worldwide, with more than 465 million matches played.
As you know Real-life football is played between 22 men and a football on a field. Opposed to this in FIFA 22, all players on a team are generally controlled by just one player, with control of the player switching as they receive possession of the ball.
You can be either defending, trying to win the ball back from the opposition or attacking trying to score in the net of the other player.
Players can use a huge selection of basic/advanced moves using their joypad or keyboard to move, pass, cross and shoot the ball.
FIFA 22 has been optimised to offer an immersive, realistic, and engaging experience as an esport.
In total, there is $280,000 up for grabs in the FIFA 22 eChampions League currently, and the top prize is $75,000, far more than that seen in the FIFA 22 ePremier League.
The eWorldCup however boasts with a $500,000 prize pool.
The total Prize Money Awarded in 2021 and early 2022 is $1,385,989.76.
