FIFA 22 update 6.1 patch notes: Gameplay, Ultimate Team & Career Mode changes

FIFA 22 title update 6.1

EA Sports have released FIFA 22 Update 6.1 for PC, with PlayStation Xbox consoles set to follow suit. It fixes visibility issues with Stamford Bridge stadium and makes changes to how certain skill moves work.

FIFA 22 is constantly being treated to gameplay updates, some of which spell drastic changes across the game’s many modes. In 2022 already, players have seen major tweaks to the gameplay that greeted them back in October.

January’s update buffed goalkeepers while making overpowered driven passes less effective. Then, February’s patch fixed a frustrating issue where the ball bounced away after an interception, which had been causing chaos in players’ defenses.

Update 6.1 is live now, solving an issue with nighttime games at Stamford Bridge which saw the pitch go entirely dark, as well as bringing update 6’s many changes to the PlayStation and Xbox versions. Check out the full FIFA 22 Update 6.1 patch notes, below:
