FIFA 21 is edging closer and closer and EA are beginning to unveil the new game.
Here is everything we know so far about FIFA 21 on PS4.
Some big news ahead of FIFA 21 is that Roma will not be fully licensed on the game.
In their place we will see Roma FC, and they will join Piemonte Calcio with unlicensed badges, kits and stadium.
Read more about Roma FC here.
On the flip side, EA have secured multi-year deals with both Milan clubs, securing AC and Inter for the foreseeable future.
EA will show off the official Gameplay Trailer on Tuesday, 4 August at 11am ET / 4pm BST.
This will be a real look at how FIFA 21 is shaping up, and we can’t wait!
Check out what we want to see from the Gameplay Trailer here.
FIFA 20 made improvements to the dribbling and defending aspects of the game and expect more fine-tuning ahead of the Next Gen consoles release.
Set pieces were also transformed, although penalties are now rather unpopular in the FIFA community.
Will EA try to adjust this or go for something new all
Official Reveal Trailer
The FIFA 21 Official Reveal Trailer was revealed last month and it gave us our first real glimpse of the new game!
You can watch it below:
While we could use a little more gameplay footage, this is a great look at the game ahead of release date, and next-gen consoles afterward.
For now, to get our fix, we’ll just have to keep hitting replay.
FIFA 21 Cover Star
No surprises here – Kylian Mbappe is the FIFA 21 cover star.
Perhaps more interestingly, Mbappe graces all three cover of the game – the Standard, Champions and Ultimate Edition.
FIFA 21 Release Date Confirmed
EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will launch on current-gen consoles on October 9, 2020.
If you pre-order the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition or Champions Edition you’ll be able to play from October 6.

Not only that, but your data from FIFA Ultimate Team and Volta Football will be transferred over to Next Gen!

The Next Gen consoles capabilities look set to take graphics to new heights, but graphics on the PS4 should still improve as they do each year.
Will EA build on the foundations they laid for Career Mode last year?
A revamped Career Mode delighted many fans last year, but they still want to see more as the interactive scenes became repetitive very quickly.
With four consoles to be in play by the end of the year, EA may look at introducing cross-platform play to its online features.
