FIFA 22 | When you receive your pre-order Fifa points bonus
Pre-orders for FIFA 22’s Ultimate Edition contain some FIFA Points that may be used to begin purchasing players.
While FIFA 22 doesn’t officially launch for another several day, you can play a free (albeit restricted) trial edition of the game through EA Play or by pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition.
Pre-orders for the Ultimate Edition include a slew of extras, including 4,600 FIFA points. Despite the fact that the trial was released last week, you may be wondering why your FIFA Points are yet to arrive.
Fortunately, there’s a simple fix, and you should be able to start spending them as soon as the four-day early access period begins.
What are FIFA Points in FIFA 22?
Here’s a brief introduction to FIFA Points in case this is your first FIFA game. In essence, they’re an in-game currency that can be used to purchase card packs in the Ultimate Team mode, which allows you to create and control your own team using any of the players you acquire.
FIFA Points can’t be earned in-game, and the only way to receive them is to pay real money for them.
Where are my FIFA Points if I pre-ordered FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition?
If you’ve been wondering why your FIFA Points haven’t arrived, it’s because they haven’t yet been sent. All of the Ultimate Edition’s pre-order incentives become accessible today, with the exception of the non-tradeable FUT 22 Ones To Watch player item, so you should have the points by now.
You can easily confirm this by just starting the game. You shouldn’t have to do anything else; they should be included automatically.
In case you’re wondering, the FUT item won’t be accessible until October 1st when FIFA 22 is officially released.
Is it possible to move FIFA Points from FIFA 21 to FIFA 22?
If you have any FIFA Points leftover from FIFA 21, you may transfer them to FIFA 22 and use them there. There’s no need to start FIFA 21 because all you have to do is log in to FIFA 22.
It’s also quite straightforward since a pop-up should occur when you first open FIFA 22 asking if you want to transfer the points. There are, however, a few things you should be aware of.
To begin with, you won’t be able to transfer your points back, but this isn’t a big deal because you’re unlikely to play FIFA 21 again. You’re probably not going to spend money on it, at the very least.
Second, you may only transfer points across platforms that are on the same platform. For example, if you purchased FIFA 21 on an Xbox platform, you must also have purchased FIFA 22. Points cannot be transferred from an Xbox version to a PlayStation or PC version of the game. The same is valid for all the platforms.
Is it possible to earn FIFA Points if I pre-order FIFA 22 Standard Edition?
Pre-orders for the Standard Edition do not include any FIFA Points. It does, however, include some goodies, including a loan item for Kylian Mbappe, a Team of the Week 1 Player item, a Career Mode Homegrown Talent, and a FUT Ambassador Loan Player Pick.
Is it possible to earn FIFA Points if I purchase FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition after October 1?
No, you can only get FIFA Points and everything else that comes with the Ultimate Edition if you pre-order FIFA 22 before the release date.
FIFA 22 releases on October 1 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, and Stadia.
