Sports Interactive have released a brand new teaser trailer that shows off just some of the new features coming to FM22 later this year, including a brand new unique player role.
With Football Manager 2022 coming later this year, Sports Interactive have released a brand new teaser trailer, showing off some exciting new features.
Sports Interactive have already confirmed that the latest game in the Football Manager series, Football Manager 2022, will be released on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. It has also been confirmed that Football Manager 2022 will return to Xbox for a second consecutive year, with an FM22 Xbox Edition, after a successful campaign last season.
Sports Interactive have now given FM fans a first glimpse of what new features are coming to Football Manager 2022 in a brand new trailer released on Thursday, September 23, 2021.
In a brand new reveal trailer, the 60-second snippet ran through a host of new features and additions to this year’s new FM title, so let’s run through some of the major new features that we spotted in the FM22 teaser trailer.
Football Manager 2022 is set to add a new player role, allowing players to be more innovative with their tactics and team set-ups.
The teaser trailer focuses on the addition of a new player role in defence, with players now able to set central defender to a ‘wide centre-back position’, as shown in the screenshot above.
The description for this player role says, “the main job of the Wide Centre-Back position is to stop the opposing attackers from playing and to clear the ball from danger when required. However, unlike standard central defenders, the Wide Centre-Back is encouraged to stay wide in possession and support the midfield more like a fullback.”
This is going to completely change your game plan in FM22 and allows for more creativity as a manager.
Create headlines on Deadline Day
The trailer teases a rework to the transfer window in FM22, specifically on deadline day, giving players the ability to simulate forward in shorter periods of time, allowing players to make smarter decisions and steal the headlines with a last-minute signing.
Sports Interactive released information on a few of the gameplay updates coming to FM22 in a recent development update:
New Data Hub – Match Momentum/Passing Charts
One thing FM is famous for is the sheer quantity of data available for players to make informed decisions when it comes to tactics and transfers. FM22 will feature a brand new ‘Data Hub’, giving players the ability to analyse previous match data in more depth than ever before.
The Match Momentum screen shows the ‘danger of possession’ across both the first and second half of the match, whilst the new Passing Chart will every pass your team made throughout the game. The new data window will give players suggestions on what to adjust or keep the same in the next match, along with a new ‘key findings’ window that gives managers a short summary of where to improve ahead of the next fixture.
