Already a number of leaks regarding new features for FIFA 21 have emerged ahead of the game's launch on 9 October.
Last month, EA Sports released a reveal trailer and further details on the changes and improvements made for the next title.
But word on plenty of the imminent additions has already slipped out amongst the FIFA community. Twitter account @FUT21news have published an overview of all the information so far so fans know what to expect.
In terms of tweaks made, the new advantage feature should go down very well.
In previous games, if a player wanted to take a free-kick instead of playing on, they would simply stop and play would be brought back for the foul.
But as per a leaked screenshot doing the rounds for the next game in the FIFA series, things will be slightly different. Instead, gamers will now have complete control of whether they take the foul or not by pressing L2 or R2 (LT or RT) on Xbox.
Don't know if anyone else saw this but..- FIFA 21 News (@FUT21News) July 26, 2020
Seems like you are now able to choose to take the foul or not...
Good Addition or not? #FIFA21

Combine this with the introduction of real life referees and you have the exciting possibility of seeing virtual Mike Dean play the same sort of advantage he loves to celebrate.
Goalkeepers being allowed pass to players inside their own box from goal kicks is also a long overdue change after the new rule was brought in across the board around a year ago. Those who love building up from the back will be in their element.
Other key features include co-op play with your mates being applicable to Ultimate Team, ball boys passionately celebrating goals with players and a cap on the amount of FIFA points one can spend.
