With the release of EA’s FIFA 21 fast approaching, players are looking forward to getting their hands on the latest game.
The hotly anticipated football extravaganza will be made available to gamers in the UK and worldwide on Friday October 9, 2020.
With many enthusiasts opting to pre-order, there’s plenty of competition out there from retailers – but we’ve found the cheapest way to buy FIFA 21.
The last iteration of the game, FIFA 20, was the most-played version in FIFA franchise history, with unique players increasing 10 percent year-over-year and daily active players reaching an all-time engagement high.
So there’s real excitement around the next edition of the game, particularly alongside the release of next-generation consoles such as Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and the PlayStation 5.
EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will be playable on these next-generation consoles when they are released.
And it’s good news for gamers who are planning to purchase one of these next-gen consoles, with EA confirming that when you purchase or pre-order FIFA 21 on Xbox, PS4 or PC, you’ll have access to something called Dual Entitlement, which will enable you to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S, at no extra cost.
And better yet, how do you fancy bagging £15 off your pre-order of FIFA 21?
This is the cheapest way to pre-order FIFA 21, using a deal offered by cashback website TopCashback.
Despite FIFA 21 not being released until October 9, 2020, there is a way you can play the game a few days earlier.
Because if you pre-order the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition or Champions Edition on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC, you’ll get three days early access allowing you to play the new game on October 6, 2020.
If you pre-order the FIFA 21 Standard Edition, you will be able to play from the UK and worldwide release date of October 9, 2020.
All progress you make or content you acquire within FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (including players, items, coins, FIFA Points, match record, and leaderboard placement), as well as all progression in VOLTA FOOTBALL will transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and back, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and back.
