EA Sports Release FIFA 21 Reveal Trailer Ahead Of Launch
On Thursday, the gaming giant announced Mbappe as the cover star for all three editions of FIFA 21 and they have now followed up by providing further insight into the changes and improvements made for the next title.
For starters, an enhanced Career Mode comes with an all-new Interactive Match Sim that allows you to jump in and out of gameplay, new changes that create "additional depth in matches, transfers, and training" - as well as a focus on player development.
A revamped growth system means you can turn full-backs into wingers and centre-backs into defensive midfielders, while other additions include more realism in the transfer market and more intelligent and informed AI-controlled opposition when it comes to defending and attacking.
It's also said FIFA 21 will see the "most intelligent gameplay" ever - with more realistic movements and emphasis on 1v1 situations through features such as 'Agile Dribbling', 'Positioning Personality', 'Creative Runs' and 'the Natural Collision System'.
VOLTA FOOTBALL is back for a second year but with more locations such as a Milan street pitch and a Dubai dome, as well as the ability to play 5v5 on online co-op play through 'VOLTA SQUADS'.
Along with a new level of customisation for your own personal avatar, there's also a new story mode titled 'The Debut' that features 2007 Ballon d'Or winner Kaka as a character.
Ultimate Team, the most popular mode in the game, is largely the same but you can now team up with friends online courtesy of 'FUT Co-Op'.
What's more, gamers will be able to smoothly transfer their clubs to and from the next-gen consoles later this year courtesy of cross-gen transfer markets, while the customisation options to make your club stand out have been expanded.
"This year, we are bringing fans together through social experiences that elevate both the small-sided experience and the excitement felt on the professional pitch, offering the most authentic and interactive EA SPORTS FIFA experience to date," said Aaron McHardy, Executive Producer, EA SPORTS FIFA.
"Along with one of the biggest updates to career mode yet and enhanced gameplay realism that continues to bridge the gap between the real and virtual world of football, fans have more ways than ever to play the beautiful game of football we all love."
FIFA 21 will be released worldwide on all good consoles on 9 October.
