FIFA 21 New Features: VAR, Career Mode & more
With the new season just around the corner, what exciting new additions will EA make to FIFA 21?
A massive talking point in the world of football is VAR, will EA introduce the technology into the game and if so, how will it work?
Keep tabs on this page for the latest updates on FIFA 21’s new features.
The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) has been at the epicentre of debate throughout this Premier League season.
Like it or loathe it, VAR looks set to stay the course, but will EA be adding it to FIFA 21?
EA brought goal-line technology to the game; however, it will be a much tougher task to introduce VAR as the expectation is the game makes correct decisions already!
Waiting for VAR in real life can be torture as it is so it will be interesting to see if/how EA implement it should they choose to do so.
Interactive transfer discussions and press conferences have arrived on Career Mode in recent years as EA showed the classic game mode a little more attention.
These additions were met with enthusiasm although they have become repetitive and time consuming so EA will need the freshen these up.
Career Mode fans have been longing for something substantial to get their teeth in to, with calls for more control over the youth academy a particularly interesting idea.
The favourite it seems is to add kit customisation. Being able to freshen up your teams look each year appears an enticing proposition for Career Mode fans!
EA successfully rejuvenated Ultimate Team on FIFA 20 with their season objective players, giving FUT fans something to work for.
With players on a more level playing field as higher overall cards are more readily available, the game mode has become more competitive.
Do not expect too many drastic changes to the game mode as fans were pretty content with Ultimate Team on FIFA 20.
EA’s introduction of House Rules in the Kick-Off mode is the closest we have seen to the old Lounge Mode of years gone by.
Lounge Mode was an old favourite when your mates were round as you used perks to disadvantage your opponent and boost your own players in the process!
Mystery Ball has been a hit and there is certainly scope for more Kick-Off modes similar with King of the Hill not quite cutting the mustard.
