FIFA 21 will land on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X on December 4. EA Sports announced the release date of the next-generation version of FIFA 21 on Tuesday, and said it will be in the “coming weeks.” What we know so far includes faster loading times (due to the built-in SSD on the PS5 and Xbox series), new delayed lighting system and improved visual effects, immersion and player movement (pre-match movie, players scream Pass), and enhanced animation).
FIFA 21 Review: Goals are fruitful
If you have not purchased FIFA 21, you can buy it from PlayStation or Microsoft Store, starting at Rs. 3,999. FIFA 21 on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X is only numbers. If you already own FIFA 21 on PS4 or Xbox One, according to EA’s “dual authorization” program, you can guarantee to get a free copy on PS5 or Xbox Series S/X, respectively. Please note that before FIFA 22 is released, you must first download FIFA 21 on the next-generation console. It is expected to be around September/October 2021.
How does the free upgrade process work?
It depends on the version you choose. If you have FIFA 21 on the disc, you need to insert it into PS5 or Xbox Series X for authentication. If you own FIFA 21 on the disc and finally get PS5 Digital Edition or Xbox Series S, you must contact EA support to confirm the purchase. And, if you bought FIFA 21 digitally, you only need to download it from the PlayStation or Microsoft Store on the new next-generation console.
With the launch of new game consoles in November, Xbox Series S/X will be launched on November 10, PlayStation 5 will be launched on November 12 (in North America, Oceania, Japan, Korea and Singapore) and November 19 (rest of the world), This means that early owners will have to wait a few weeks to experience the next generation of FIFA.But you don’t have to wait until December 4th play FIFA 21 on PS5 or Xbox Series S/X. That’s because the game is backward compatible. Before December 4th, playing FIFA 21 on PS5 is like playing on PS4 Pro, Xbox One S for Xbox Series S and Xbox One X for Xbox Series X.
Even though your experience on the shiny new console may be a bit the same, you should still consider starting with PS5 or Xbox Series S/X. That’s because not all FIFA 21 progress and saved game files will be transferred from PS4 or Xbox One to PS5 or Xbox Series S/X respectively. Although Ultimate Team and Volta Football will continue, this is not the case for online seasons, cooperative seasons, career modes, professional clubs and others.
FIFA 21 will be launched on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X on December 4.
