Anthony Joshua and Diplo join FIFA 21 thanks to HUGE Volta Update

The heavyweight boxer and American DJ will both feature in this years edition of the football sim.

It's a sentence we never thought we'd say, but Anthony Joshua will feature in FIFA 21.

The two-time unified heavyweight champion of the world will be joined by American DJ Diplo in this years Volta.

Here's everything we know.

Groundbreakers!

AJ and Diplo will each feature in the latest addition to the Volta game mode, Groundbreakers.

They will be joined by a host of footballing stars - both past and present - including FIFA 21 cover star Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United legend Eric Cantona - who also features in the ICON 100.

Here is the list of the FIFA 21 Groundbreakers in full:

  • Kylian Mbappe
  • Kaka
  • Anthony Joshua
  • Trent Alexander Arnold
  • Thierry Henry
  • Diplo
  • Joao Felix

How to access AJ and Diplo

It's quite simple really, beat them, and you recruit them.

Thankfully, you won't have to take on AJ in the boxing ring. Instead, you'll have to beat his featured team in the Volta Featured Battles.

How good the two will be at the small sided game remains to be seen, but it's a pretty big coup for EA nonetheless!
