FIFA 22 FUT Heroes are brand new cards coming to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, as EA Sports look to ramp up the content in their popular online game mode. The FUT Heroes cards in FIFA 22 will be made up of former professional players, much like the FUT Icons range which boasts the likes of Pele and Maradona. However, FIFA 22 FUT Heroes work slightly differently to Icons.

Instead of the 'legends' of football, the FUT Heroes will feature players who accomplished great achievements in their careers, such as Jerzy Dudek - the Polish goalkeeper behind the infamous Istanbul comeback of 2005, where Liverpool came from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan in the Champions League Final. Dudek pulled off an incredible double-save in Extra Time, before denying FIFA Icon Andriy Shevchenko. This accomplishment has earned Dudek a place on the FIFA 22 FUT Heroes list.

With many memorable moments throughout footballing history, here's who has stepped into the spotlight in the FIFA 22 FUT Heroes range.

FIFA 22 FUT Heroes Chemistry Explained

Unlike the superior Icon range, the FUT Heroes cards won't link with every other card in the game. Instead, they will have a designated league in which they were most prevalent in during their careers, such as Jerzy Dudek and the Premier League. 

When linking to any player within the same league, the FUT Heroes will offer a strong green link, in contradiction with how league links normally work. 

The FUT Heroes will also have a yellow link for the chemistry between the same nationalities, much like regular cards.

For example, if Diego Milito played as a striker (4-3-3), he would have a weak link to Lionel Messi on the right-wing, but a strong link with any Serie A left-winger.  

A perfect link is formed when the same league and nationality are shared, and have perfect links between different FUT Heroes too.

The FIFA 22 FUT Heroes will be available upon the launch of the game, although it is unclear whether the whole range will be available in packs, or whether some will require completing Squad Building Challenges to earn them. You can read more about FIFA 22 FUT Heroes on the official website, and keep your eyes peeled on GGRecon for more FIFA 22 guides.
