FIFA21 – all the new features you need to know

FIFA 21 is a football simulation video game published by Electronic Arts as part of the FIFA series. It is the 28th installment in the FIFA series, and was released 9 October 2020 for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also it will be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X once new consoles are realeased.

You won’t need to buy FIFA 21 twice because of “Dual Entitlement”. The Ultimate Team and VOLTA progress will carry onto new generation consoles, but sadly Career Mode will not.

However the latest update of FIFA 21 still had a huge impact on the virtual players world. Everyone is buying the game to see the new features and try them by themselves.

Reviews on FIFA 21 have mostly been positive, but it appears to be that it is a game that is just a minor upgrade of FIFA 20, with new skins and only few small improvements of existing features.


Seems to be that it’s not many new things to discover on the newest game release. Nevertheless down below we listed all the new changes in FIFA 21 game you might still be interested in, such as:

Career Mode improvements


A new ‘Quick Sim’ option is available on FIFA 21 and you are able to jump in and out of the game to influence the direction of the season. You are also able to improve player abilities with a new Active Training System – which facilitates the creation of group training sessions to work on areas of weakness.
