EA Sports has revealed the release dates for FIFA 21 on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Next Gen consoles are slated to hit stores in early November, and now fans know when they'll be able to get their upgraded FIFA fix.
Announced back in June, EA Sports revealed that FIFA 21 would be offered in a dual entitlement setting. This means gamers who purchased FIFA 21 on PS4 or Xbox One will receive a free upgrade of the title on the corresponding Next Gen console (PS5/Xbox Series X).
This was very well received, as forcing customers to purchase the game twice would have received major pushback. Since the dual entitlement announcement from EA Sports, Sony and Microsoft have given release dates for Next Gen consoles.
PS5 is slated to release on November 12, 2020, while Xbox Series X will hit stores on November 10, 2020. Current versions of FIFA 21 will reportedly operate in a backwards compatible fashion on Next Gen PlayStation and Xbox.
Customers who purchased a hard-copy disc version of FIFA 21 will need to contact EA Sports for their free upgrade. But when can gamers expect to play FIFA 21 on their new systems?
FIFA 21 PS5 & Xbox Series X Release Dates
Announced just this morning, EA Sports has revealed FIFA 21 will go live on Next Gen consoles December 4, 2020. While this is almost a full month after Next Gen consoles release, gamers need not worry.
All FUT 21 progress from current generation consoles will transfer over to Next Gen as soon as they release. Meaning you won't need to completely rebuild your Ultimate Team come December.
However, Pro Clubs players will not be so delighted with the news. EA Sports has also revealed that "progress within all other modes including Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, etc. will be specific to the console you are playing on and won’t transfer between consoles."
While the news isn't ideal, help is here from Gaming Intel. We've outlined the Pro Clubs Skill Points system and highlighted the fastest way to level up your player for December 4.
