THE GOOD NEWS: It looks like FIFA 21 is back online!

As well, the Weekend League will be extended by 24 hours due to the inconvenience.

While this is great news, there's still one big question left behind - will Rulebreakers and Ultimate Scream be extended?

EA Servers Down - Server Status

FIFA 21 is hitting a huge moment with the release of FUT 21 Ultimate Scream promo Rulebreakers.

IT BEGINS: EA have been aware of server outages for hours, but servers are still offline

Perhaps because of the hype, it looks like EA's servers have been overwhelmed, as widespread outages have taken out all of the company's titles.

This means that Apex Legends, NHL 21, FIFA 21, and more are currently down due to server outages.

Worse, EA have no positive news on server status yet.

FIFA 21

FIFA 21 is perhaps the most effected by EA's servers going down, as the Ultimate Scream Rulebreakers promo has just dropped!

THE PUZZLE: EA slowly revealed the FIFA 21 Rulebreakers players, and the hype has now taken down servers for all of EA's titles

This set includes some massive players heading into FUT 21, as the first major set to bring power each year.

For now, players will just have to strategize at which packs they'll open when servers return, and which challenges they'll start with.

You can catch up with all of the details here!

Madden 21

Madden 21 is also another game pushing its Halloween event, Most Feared, and its first promo, Scary Sharp, today.

This hype wave could've contributed to the widespread EA server outages keeping players from enjoying them.

For now, you can go over all the details of the program here!

NHL 21

NHL 21 has just finally gone live, and one week after release, its servers are down.

DOMINO EFFECT: EA's servers are on ice

This is also in connection with the widespread EA servers going down, and puts players on ice.

While NHL 21 doesn't have a massive Halloween promo for HUT - this is still a big frustration for players just getting into the swing of the brand new hockey sim.

Apex Legends

Apex Legends is yet another major title with servers down due to EA's outages. This comes just as the Fight or Fright event gets going.

TAKE YOUR PICK: Apex Legends offers tons of new content for Fight or Fight, now on pause due to server outages

That means players will have to wait to pop into Shadow Royale, and pick up the new event skins.

Hopefully EA will extend the Fight or Fright event to compensate the servers going down.

Others

These aren't the only games that are facing offline servers due to EA's outage - also including Star Wars Battlefront 2, Battlefield 5, and more.

We'll update with the latest EA server status news here as it comes - but for now, it's better to just take a break from trying to connect.
