In these recent hours, Electronic Arts gave the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of FIFA 21 a specific release date. We’ll tell you when you can get started on the new generation of consoles.
A few weeks ago FIFA 21 got off to a successful start on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. In addition, the title was also published for Nintendo Switch in the form of the so-called Legacy Edition.
As already announced, the next-generation consoles in the form of the PlayStation 5 as well as the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S will also be given technically refurbished versions. After it was still unclear when the next-generation version of FIFA 21 would appear, EA provided clarity today and confirmed December 4, 2020, as the release date for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
If you already own FIFA 21 for the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, Electronic Arts’ dual entitlement program gives you the opportunity to upgrade your version to the next-generation version free of charge. However, we are dealing with a temporary measure here.
The option of a free upgrade can only be used up to the release of a successor, in this case, FIFA 22. On the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series S, and the Xbox Series X, FIFA 21 has received various technical improvements.
We can look forward to a higher resolution, a better frame rate and revised animation, among other things.
