fifa 22

While it’s always nice to outmaneuver and outsmart your opponents in FIFA 22, sometimes you just want to style on ’em. Skill Moves are especially useful in this regard and performed with different input buttons. Like last year, they’re broken up into different star categories, from 1 star to 5 stars depending on their complexity and difficulty to execute.

All Items That Carry Over From FIFA 21 to 22

If you’ve played enough FIFA 21, then you’ll be able to carry over FUT items and other things like FIFA Points into FIFA 22. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include Cards, Coins, any packs that are unopened, your match history, FUT Club data, Achievements/Trophies or Career progress. Players, managers, and contracts also won’t carry over, and neither will unassigned items.

First things first, load up FIFA 22 on your platform of choice, which should be the same platform where you’ve played FIFA 21. You’ll be informed that your data can be carried over and to confirm the same. Data can’t be carried over between different platforms, so no transferring from Xbox to PlayStation. This also applies when trying to play on PC and then moving over to Xbox or PlayStation so keep that in mind.

FIFA 22 is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC (with a Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch). Check out our review for it here.
