FIFA 21

FIFA 21 Box Art

FIFA 21 is the latest entry in EA Sports’ popular soccer game series. It offers more ways to play in the streets and the stadium and includes officially licensed teams and rosters of the UEFA Champions League and CONMEBOL Libertadores. On top of the usual updates and tweaks there’s a bigger focus on the Career Mode.

The game will be available on the next-gen consoles with a plethora of improvements thanks to the more powerful hardware: haptic feedback, near-instant load times, dynamic lighting, lifelike animations, and spatial audio.

As was the case with its predecessor, the game will also be available on Nintendo Switch as a Legacy Edition with updated kits and squads but without new game modes and other improvements.

FIFA 21 is also coming to next-gen consoles this holiday season. EA has announced a “Dual Entitlement” promotion that will enable FIFA 21 owners to upgrade their copy from Xbox One to Xbox Series X and from PS4 to PS5 free of charge. The progression in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team will carry over to the new console while the locally saved Career Mode and Co-Op Seasons will not.
