As both hoped for and expected, EA Sports have announced that they’re getting their soccer on again with FIFA 21 heading our way…

It’s a very exciting year for the franchise, too, with it on its way for the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, as well as now-gen formats.

Beyond the expected top gameplay and visuals, the new consoles will bring a whole lot more to proceedings. With FIFA 21 we’re promised “blazing fast load times, deferred lighting and rendering, enhanced animation technology, off-ball humanisation” and more.

FIFA 21 will launch worldwide on October 9 for PS4, Xbox One and Switch, with new-gen formats to be confirmed. Best of all, if you get in on the current generation game, you’ll be able to upgrade form PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X once they release at no extra cost.

Here’s a quick look at next-gen FIFA 21 – with a bit of Madden 21 thrown in for good measure.
