There's A Glitch That Allows You To Play FIFA 21 On XBOX Before Worldwide Release Date
There's a glitch that allows Xbox players to play FIFA 21 today - four days before the official release date.
EA Sports' franchise football game is out worldwide on 9 October but a popular FIFA twitter account has provided instructions on how those who pre-ordered the 'Champions' and 'Ultimate' edition of the game can access it earlier.
The glitch, shared by @FUTDonk, involves changing your location and timezone to New Zealand, where the game's scheduled release is October 6 (tomorrow).
Simple make those above changes in the setting section on your Xbox console, reset it and before you know it, you should be able to bash FIFA 21 right away.
It's probably best off to change your location back once the process has been collected even though 'Donk' reckons region locking isn't a thing for Xbox and has "done this every year with no issues on multiple titles".
Those who pay for EA Play on a monthly basis have been able to enjoy playing ten hours of the game before it is released in its entirety, but the aforementioned and effective hack is an absolute godsend.

In a statement on Twitter, EA explained their reason behind abandoning the highly anticipated FIFA 21 demo, which is usually made available around three to four weeks before the official title release date.
"We aren't releasing a demo for FIFA 21." they wrote.
"Instead we've made the decision to focus our development team's time on delivering the best full game experience for current & next-gen consoles.
"We look forward to EA PLAY members jumping in 10 days from now and launching the game Oct 9."
This year the official release date was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic but through 'Dual Entitlement', the positive is that FIFA 21 will be playable on next-gen consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X without any added cost when they are released next month.
