Release Dates

We expect FIFA 21 Title Update 12 went live on PC (Origin/Steam) on Wednesday, 10 March.

It should then arrive on console - PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S - on Friday, 12 March.

Unfortunately, the update does not apply to Nintendo Switch players.

It remains to be seen whether the update will apply to FIFA 21 on Stadia which goes live on Wednesday, 17 March.


Who will the new starheads be?

Plenty of Europe's youngsters are yet to receive FIFA 21 Starheads, which has been due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

In the Premier League, Martin Odegaard, Sergio Reguilon, Nelson Semedo, Raphinha, Edouard Mendy and Reece James are all yet to receive official player faces - so maybe some of them could get the full treatment in this patch.

Elsewhere in Europe, Marcos Acuna, Nicolas Tagliafico and Nicolo Barella will be hoping that their time for a starhead is now.

In recent patches, whenever they've added starheads, many come from the same club, with eight players arriving from Tigres in Title Update 11.
