EA have already teased some of gameplay from FIFA 22, but now we have been given details around the game, as well as the full official gameplay trailer - and boy, does it look good.
If this trailer doesn't get you pumped for its release later this year, then we don't know what will.
Now, for the first time ever, managers will interact with players during pivotal moments of the game - meaning a Jose Mourinho knee slide could very well happen in FIFA 22.
FIFA insider @DonkTrading was able to reveal a cutscene on Twitter on Thursday to reveal the new and welcomed scene.

Another new addition has seen auto blocking nerfed, in order for the game to progress more manually - and about time, too.
Furthermore, EA have also added a brand new 'live tuning tool', meaning that gameplay can be tweaked without the need of a full update. Hallelujah!
Like most savvy Ultimate Team players will know, selecting a quick full-back to play at centre-half was something pivotal to defending well during games - but that is all about to change.
Placing any player that is not a centre-back in the heart of defence will now negatively impact their defensive positioning.

More of this going forward please :eyes:
For next-gen consoles, EA are using brand new technology - HyperMotion technology - to well and truly change the game in FIFA 22.
Previously, players would come to the studio with optical motion, but for the first time ever, the American gaming giant have used Xsens motion capture suits using 22 professional players in their natural environment.
The new tech, with more than 8.7m frames of advanced match capture, brings over 4,000 new animations when it comes to defending, shooting, passing and dribbling to result in smoother transitions and football behaviours.
As a result of the newly-introduced HyperMotion technology, goalkeepers will feel completely different on FIFA 22 - and in a good way.
With a new system adopted, those between the sticks have more personality and the variety of saves is much-improved.
For the full pitch notes on FIFA 22, EA have deep dived into the game on the website, which you can view here.
