FIFA 21 hits PS5, Xbox Series X and S on 4th December

Long run up.

FIFA 21 comes out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S on 4th December, EA has announced.

Madden NFL 21 next-gen comes out on the same date.

EA said these next-gen versions have "blazing fast" load times and new player detail with deferred rendering and lighting. The PS5 version will also make use of the DualSense controller's haptic tech, but EA didn't say how.

Unfortunately, EA has yet to show off the next-gen version of FIFA 21, and it failed to provide any new assets with today's announcement.

As already announced, current-gen owners get a free next-gen upgrade via the Dual Entitlement program. (Physical discs purchasers need to contact EA at help.ea.com to obtain an upgrade code for the discless consoles.) However, only Ultimate Team and Volta progress carries over. Career mode progress, for example, does not. EA explained why recently.
