FIFA has just raised the bar for video game soundtracks.

Gamers and soccer fanatics alike are counting down the days until the next entry in the FIFA series drops. Next month, EA Sports will release FIFA 22, the latest soccer simulator in the top-selling game franchise. In an effort to pump up fans for the thousands of hours of gameplay that await them, the soundtracks for both the traditional FIFA and VOLTA FOOTBALL have been shared. 

It's very clear that developers spared no expense when it came to curating their latest game. The upcoming release features 122 songs that represent 27 different countries. Those who frequent EDM.com will be thrilled to hear that like last year's soundtrack, the songs selected for FIFA 22 are quite electronic-oriented.

The soundtrack is split into two parts. One half is dedicated to the base FIFA release and the other half is featured in the street soccer game mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL. Imagining the soundtracks like stages at a festival: the former features your headlining acts across a wide number of genres while developers state that the latter is focused on the sounds of the underground.
