A few days after the official announcement, EA introduced cross-play on FIFA 22, albeit with some limitations. After downloading update ten available now, all PS5, Xbox Series X / S, and Stadia players can play together or compete in Seasons and Friendlies modes online in what EA described as an open test ahead of the arrival of the game’s next installment in the series, which should include cross-play from launch.
Update 10 is available on all platforms, including PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but it only fixes some bugs and updates some interface elements. Cross-play is currently only available on Stadia and next-gen consoles. Still, we expect the functionality to arrive everywhere in the future and that it will also be extended to other modes, including FIFA Ultimate Team. However, those not interested can always deactivate the function from the settings menu.
FIFA 22 is available on all major platforms and redeemable at no cost by PS Plus subscribers, on PS4 and PS5. According to various rumors, the game should also arrive on Xbox Game Pass via EA Play.
