FIFA 21 vs. FIFA 22 Graphics Comparison: Is There a Huge Difference?
FIFA 21 to FIFA 22 might not seem like a big jump. What if we compare these two versions of the game side-by-side to see if the upgrade is worth it?
For the yearly football fans, they likely don’t need an incentive to upgrade. They just want the latest players, upgraded stats, and the usual FIFA Ultimate Team to get FIFA 22. For the casuals who just play through a simple match of football to get some fun out of it, is there anything worthwhile here? We can see this difference in comparison from YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits.
The visuals don’t appear to have been improved at first glance. Looking back at FIFA 21, there was a decent jump going from the PS4 to the PS5 version. The biggest improvement was perhaps for the character models which received an uplift in their facial and hairstyle.
The same difference applies to FIFA 22 as well. Aside from that, we know there are gameplay changes and improvements that can’t be seen in a side-by-side comparison like that, so that’s another story altogether.
If you are playing FIFA 22 purely for the yearly franchise and player upgrades, you are fine even with a PS4 Pro that runs the game at 4K at 60 FPS. The same is true for the Xbox One X. While Xbox Series and PS5 players can enjoy a little more visual clarity, but that’s the gist of it.
