The Electronic Arts company said that the new motion technology that allows the game to write its own animations would be too powerful for PCs.
The company confirmed that the forthcoming version of the best selling game in 2020, FIFA 22, will be missing some features on PC, while all the latest available features will be available for console players.
The PCs won’t be able to handle the new “groundbreaking HyperMotion gameplay technology” the company has included in the latest trailer footage of the game. Specifically, the new special motion technology captures the suits worn by the players to inform how the game engine generates their movements.
The EA explained that the Xsens suits record every touch, tackle and sprint from all 22 players and that this would raise the intensity, responsiveness, and physicality of every player in the game. Furthermore, this technology will be able to write new animations in real-time to create organic football realism across all interactions on the pitch.
However, the last-generation console gamers and those with PCs won’t be able to enjoy these features, as the technology is only available on PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and Google Stadia.
