FIFA 22: Is there a one machine limit on PC?

Here's what you need to know about FIFA 22 on PC

FIFA 22 is set to drop in the next few weeks via EA Access and general retail, with PC gamers anticipating the new title.

Players on PC will have access to a plethora of mods from the community and is one of the primary reasons that gamers choose to play on the platform, as well as the graphical advantages (usually!).

Unfortunately, there appears to be a number of reasons for fans to not get the PC version this year, as the game will apparently be modelled on the PS4, Xbox One and Switch ports, rather than the true next-gen power of Xbox Series X/S or PS5.

One element of disappointment though has already been cleared up by EA themselves.

AltChar.com recently confirmed that EA had contacted them about the apparent 1-machine limit for PC gamers with the new version of FIFA.

The official FIFA 22 Steam page noted the following: "Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: EA on-line activation and Origin client software installation and background use required. 1 machine activation limit."

Is FIFA 22 one machine per account on PC?

EA confirmed in a reply to the site that the information listed on Steam was incorrect, and that players on PC would not be subject to a 1-machine per copy as was listed.

They wrote: "We can confirm there is not a one machine limit for FIFA 22 on PC via Steam. This was listed incorrectly and the limitation has now been removed. We apologise for the confusion and thank our community for noticing the error."

Thankfully this appears to be resolved for PC gamers, although the lack of a next-gen version of the game on PC still seems odd. 

There's a good chance that mods will be released for the PC version from the FIFA community that may address the graphical issues that the PC port may have, but these may be a while off as modders begin to get access to the code of the game from the end of September.
