It is not long now until the release of FIFA 21!

The highly anticipated launch of the Next Gen consoles is also just around the corner. But for now, here is what you need to know about FIFA 21 on PS4.


Latest News – Nothing to show at Gamescom

Gamescom took place over the weekend, giving games developers the chance to showcase their upcoming titles.

Unfortunately for FIFA fans, EA opted to focus on their non-sporting titles at the event, which means that fans will have to wait for the next announcement for anymore news.

With the Beta set to come to an end soon, there should be a Demo release date confirmed shortly!

FIFA 21 Release Date Confirmed

EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will launch on current-gen consoles on October 9, 2020.

If you pre-order the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition or Champions Edition you’ll be able to play from October 6.
