At this time, we’ve only seen one trailer, and that was through EA Play’s digital event. Interestingly the trailer is actually part FIFA 21 and part Madden 21.

There is not a whole lot to see in terms of gameplay, and it is a ‘next-gen’ showcase too, but we still get a good idea of what to expect come October.


FIFA 21 Graphics on Xbox One

So the big question is, how will FIFA 21 look and play on Microsoft’s current-gen console?

Generally speaking we could expect an improvement from FIFA 20 on Xbox One, as we have done every year.

But the most interesting improvements should be around new gameplay innovations.

Gameplay Innovations

One of the many gameplay enhancements we can expect to see come October will be ‘off-ball humanisation’.

This essentially means that players will behave far more realisticlly than before.

We could see players do everything from a simple adjustment of a shin-pad all the way to shouting frantically for a pass. This new level of immersion and realism should certainly prove exciting for fans of the series.
