EA Sports has published all the information about the FIFA 22 crossplay test in the latest edition Pitch Notes Article on your website. So here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming FIFA 22 crossplay test.
What is the FIFA 22 Crossplay Test and what modes is it available for?
“For FIFA 22, crossplay is the ability to play the game with players on different platforms,” Said EA Sports via a blog post.
“Crossplay testing will be available in Online Seasons and Online Friendlies, meaning you can play FIFA 22 with a friend on another platform or climb the Online Seasons divisions against players who may be playing on other platforms .
“As previously mentioned, this crossplay test is only available to all players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Stadia versions of FIFA 22 and not players on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.”
Why is this crossplay test only available in online seasons and online friendlies?
“While we want to allow our players to play with as many friends and others as possible, we limited testing to these two modes to reduce the likelihood of introducing new issues into the game. We’re confident that the game data and feedback we’re getting from these two modes will help inform how cross-play might be further implemented in future titles.”
How do I enable or disable FIFA 22 crossplay testing?
“Once the cross-play test is enabled and you are in the main menu of FIFA 22, you will find a widget in the bottom right that can be opened with the appropriate button prompt, as shown below.
“From this widget you can simply follow the button prompt to enable or disable your crossplay test participation. You don’t have to do anything else. In this widget you can also search for friends regardless of their platform, and you can also block and/or mute someone if you wish.
“You can also control your crossplay test participation by visiting the matchmaking options settings screen, as shown below.”
How can I play crossplay with my friend in FIFA 22?
“To play online friendlies with a friend during this test, you should first open the widget mentioned above and add your friend to the in-game friends list. You can search your friend by their platform or EA username as prompted by the on-screen prompt.
“Once you find your friend’s name, select them and choose the option to add them as a friend. Your friend should accept your request in the widget. To play with a friend, you can add their name from your friends list in the widget select and follow the button prompts to invite them to a match.
“You can also just switch to Online Friendlies mode and select your friend from the list displayed on screen to invite them to a game.”
How do I play crossplay in Online Seasons?
“Provided you have cross-play testing enabled, you can jump into online seasons as normal, nothing further needs to be done. As usual, matchmaking is looking for a suitable opponent, and they may or may not end up on a different platform than you are.”
Does crossplay affect FIFA 22 gameplay or matchmaking at all?
“The cross-play test has no direct impact on FIFA 22 gameplay. You can think of this cross-play test as another part of the game.
“When matchmaking in Online Seasons, FIFA 22 will accommodate players from other platforms as long as you’re signed up.”
What else do I need to know about the crossplay test?
“If you search for a friend in the main menu widget, you will see a cross-play platform ad next to their name. If your friend is on the same platform as you, the display will show the platform you are on.
“If your friend is on a different platform, a different indicator will appear. The same indicators are also displayed during matches when playing in online seasons.”
