FIX: FIFA 22 Error CE-108255-1 Crashing PS5

In this guide, we will be taking a look at fixing the error code CE-108255-1 in FIFA 2022 when playing the game on your PlayStation 5. This error can happen when you launch the Fifa 22 game, or when you are in the middle of a match! Either way, it’s very frustrating when it happens to you, especially if you were about to score a goal with your favourite player and then Fifa just crashes to your PS5 home screen.

As you probably already know, FIFA 2022 is a great way to get to challenge your friends to see who really is the ultimate Fifa champion. Or if you don’t like to challenge your friends then the game is still just as fun playing against the computer and showing who is the best team in the world cup.

This is all great until FIFA 22 crashes on your PS5 and then gives you a CE-108255-1 error code, and only lets you quit the game or completely freezes on your console. Luckily there are a few things that you can do to hopefully fix the error code CE-108255-1 in FIFA 22 on your PlayStation 5, and that’s exactly what we will be taking a look at in this guide.

What causes the CE-108255-1 error code in FIFA 22?

There can be many reasons why you are getting the CE-108255-1 error when trying to launch FIFA, or if it happens randomly during playing the game. Sometimes the error can happen because one of the FIFA 22 game files has become corrupted or missing on your PlayStation. This can be the result of a recent update or can happen during the install of the game.

It’s not likely to be an issue with your PlayStation but more of an issue related to the game itself. And it is actually more common than you think as you can also get this PlayStation error code in Horizon Forbidden West, GTA V, and also Gran Turismo 7.

What If The Methods Don’t Work?

If the methods don’t help fix the CE-108255-1 error when trying to play FIFA 22 then the next thing to do is try reaching out to EA support, or even Sony support. You could try resetting your PlayStation 5 back to its factory default settings, but this still might not help especially if you are not getting the error in any other games!
