FIFA 22 Shapeshifters leaked: Messi, Son, Hazard, more
FIFA 22 Shapeshifters is expected to be the next event on the calendar, so here's everything you need to know about the promo. The post FIFA 22 Shapeshifters leaked: Messi, Son, Hazard, more appeared first on Dexerto.
The fan-favorite Shapeshifters promo will be FIFA 22’s next event following TOTS. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 22 Shapeshifters, from the release date to the players that will feature.
Following the release of FIFA 22 Ultimate TOTS, the Team of the Season promo is drawing to a close for another year. After weeks of non-stop content, players would be forgiven for thinking that FIFA 22 is winding down, and focus will be shifting to FIFA 23.
However, EA still has plenty of special events planned to tie players over until the new game drops, and a new promo might be closer than you think.
FIFA 22 Shapeshifters is next up on the schedule, so here’s everything we know about this interesting promo so far.
FIFA 22 Shapeshifters leaked
Before the promo has officially got underway, a handful of Shapeshifters have already been revealed. Respected leakers Donk Trading and FUT Sheriff posted many of the players set to feature on social media.
Here’s the leaked team of FIFA 22 Shapeshifters so far, along with the positions they have moved to if available:
- Lionel Messi (PSG) – CAM
- Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) – ST
- Yannick Carrasco (Atletico Madrid) – CAM
- Heung Min Son (Spurs) – ST
- Eden Hazard (Real Madrid) – CAM
- Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (Barcelona) – LW
- Nordi Mukiele (RB Leipzig) – CB
- Youcef Atal (Nice) – CM
- Pierre Kalulu (AC Milan) – CB
- Jeremiah St. Juste (Mainz 05) – RW
- Hector Bellerin (Real Betis) – LB
- Leonardo Spinazzola (Roma) – CDM
EA have confirmed that Shapeshifters will begin on Friday, June 17, 2022. This is the day that Ultimate TOTS ends, and we expect to be thrown straight into Shapeshifters with no letup.
The first team of Shapeshifters will hit packs at 6 PM BST and remain for a full week. A second team could then follow on June 24 if EA opts for a two-week promo, but this is still to be confirmed.
Despite its absence in FIFA 21, Shapeshifters is a popular promo among the FUT community as it sees big-name players moving out of their preferred position.
These can range from conventional moves like a full-back switching to a winger, to more unusual changes like a center-back playing as a striker. The cards are also heavily boosted to make them great options in their new position.
In the past, we’ve seen the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold move into midfield and even N’Golo Kante drop into defense. The idea is to open up new possibilities and Chemistry links to help players build weird and wonderful squads.
As we move into the end of FIFA 22’s lifecycle, Shapeshifters is exactly the kind of quirky concept that will keep players occupied until FIFA 23 releases.
