Footage Shows How Players React To Being Hit In The Face On FIFA 21

Footage Shows How Players React To Being Hit In The Face On FIFA 21

Footage of how players react to being hit in the face on FIFA 21 has emerged.

EA Sports have made a number of changes to this year's game as they continue to focus on adding authenticity into the FIFA series and this latest alteration could be the most realistic yet.

It's common knowledge that theatrics are part of real-life football and though there is no option to deliberately dive on FIFA 21, like 'This is Football 2003' back in the day, players do react differently to challenges.

In a video doing the rounds amongst the FIFA community, Eden Hazard gets caught by a flailing arm in a Champions League away game against Tottenham Hotspur.

The defender, who ironically appears to be formerArsenal defender Gabriel Paulista, hits him square inside the area and the Belgian tumbles to the ground clutching his face like you would see in a real life game. In terms of realism, you really can't complain.

While only a slight change in the grand scheme of things, it's a welcome one for gamers who want FIFA to feel legitimate.

Another cool feature to bring about that realism sees players drop to the floor in devastation when they concede a last-gasp goal.

A screenshot from Twitter user @delstroyer_ from the FIFA 21 beta shows Manchester City celebrating a late goal against Liverpool at Anfield.

While the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are wheeling away in euphoria, a slew of Liverpool players are slumped on the deck with their heads in their hands.

It's a sight we've seen many times in real life - perhaps most memorably from Ajax players when Lucas Moura bagged a dramatic winner in last year's Champions League semi-final second leg against Ajax.

In other changes, a whole host of clubs now have unique walk-out and goal music - while the advantage and new goal kick rules have been properly implemented in FIFA 21.

However, we do know that VAR does not feature in the game due to EA having "different priorities".

FIFA 21, with Kylian Mbappe as the cover star, is released worldwide on all good consoles on 9 October.
