Sadly, no, FIFA 22 does not have any form of cross platform or cross generation play at all, including PS4 and PS5 – you can only match with other players that are on the same platform as you. The only workaround for this is if you’re able to download the PS4 version of FIFA 22 onto your PS5, which would allow you to player with other PS4 players without actually using a PS4. Obviously, you’ll be sacrificing the graphical and performance enhancements that the PS5 version has, and it seems like the only way you can even do this is by owning the FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition, which includes both a PS4 and 5 version of the game.

Either way, if you want to give FIFA 22 a try, you can download it for free between now and June 6, 2022, provided you’ve got a PS Plus subscription. Even if you already own FIFA 22 and are a PS Plus subscriber, you can bag yourself a free FIFA Ultimate Team pack, which’ll get you 11 new signings for the team of your dreams.
