Brand new animation engine
The previous FM animation engine actually tied players to the 2D discs that formed the basis of our transition from 2D view to 3D view, limiting actual movement and movement.
But the new FM22 engine is built around the new addition of root movement, which means players leave those 2D discs, and 3D model movement is now based on their skeleton animation, allowing for much more realistic movements. .
Football Manager 2022 will add a whole new player role, the wide center-back, as seen in the screenshot below.
The description of this playing role states that “the main task of the wide center-back position is to prevent opposing attackers from playing and clearing the ball from danger when necessary. However, unlike standard center-backs, the A wide center-back is encouraged to stay wide in possession and to support the midfielder more like a full-back. “

Updated match AI
The match AI in FM22 has taken another step forward with a series of upgrades that make them the smartest in series history.
Sports Interactive has rebalanced the way the length and difficulty of a pass affects accuracy. So, for example, bullets at long range will have less chance of finding their target. The appearance of under-touched and over-touched passes in the game is also significantly improved.
With Football Manager 2022 finally launching, the latest game promises to deliver all the excitement of previous titles and more! So what are you waiting for? Here are all of the places where you can buy and download the game right now.
Errors were also applied to the first touches for the first time, so it will be more evident when players hit or mis-timed their first touch. All of this leads to a more realistic representation of how possession and momentum evolves during a game.
The changes to precision and imprecision go hand in hand with the overhaul of the FM22’s baling system. If your players press too hard and lack condition during a match, you’ll see your team making more imprecise passes, taking heavier first touches, and making more mistakes.
This should be kept in mind when setting up your tactical system and making your second-half substitutions, as forcing your team to cover a lot of ground in the first half can have consequences as time goes on until the end of the day. final whistle.
New Data Center – Match Momentum / Passing Charts
One thing FM is famous for is the sheer amount of data available for players to make informed tactical and transfer decisions. FM22 will feature an all-new “Data Hub”, giving players the ability to analyze data from previous matches in greater depth than ever.
The Match Momentum screen displays ‘possession danger’ during the first and second half of the match, while the new passing table keeps your team successful throughout the match.
The new data window will give players suggestions on what to adjust or keep in the next game, as well as a new ‘key findings’ window that gives managers a brief summary of where they need to improve before the next game.
