Ghanaian soccer legend Abedi Pele has been included in the FIFA 22 Ultimate Team and also added to the FIFA 22 FUT Hero Cards.
The FIFA Ultimate Team is made up of retired soccer players who had great impact on the game both at club and international levels in their hay-days.
The first batch of names announced by EA Sports earlier July with included world class players like Robbie Keane, Abedi Pele, Jorge Campos, Diego Milito and Clint Dempsey. Players in the FIFA Ultimate Team are known as FUT Heroes.
“FUT Heroes are a new addition for FIFA 22 and will help you build more varied squads, but are not as impactful as ICONs.
While ICONs can be added to any team, FUT Heroes are each assigned to a league, so will have a strong chemistry link with all other players from that league.
The nationality of the FUT Heroes will also give chemistry boosts, in the same way that all other cards in FIFA Ultimate Team have a weak link with other players of that nationality.
For example, Diego Milito’s FUT Heroes card will have a perfect link to Lautaro Martinez as they share both nationality and league.
Milito would have a strong link to Zlatan Ibrahimovic as they share the same league but have a different nationality. His link with Lionel Messi would only be weak as, even though they have the same nationality, they have different leagues.
FUT Heroes will be available in packs – just like most other cards in the game. You will then be able to buy and sell them on the Transfer Market.
Other FUT Heroes cards may become available through Squad Building Challenges (SBCs).
They will be available in packs from the release of the game on October 1.
Anyone who pre-orders the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 22 before August 14 will also receive an untradeable FUT Heroes player during the season.” According to Goal.com.
More additions will be announced in August and September before the official launch of FIFA 22 on October 1.
