Once again based around the sport of football, and featuring licensed players, teams, leagues and stadiums, it will allow users to recreate the sport in both solo and, more commonly, in multiplayer modes.

Electronic Arts will be releasing FIFA 21 on October 9 on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, with a PS5 and Xbox Series X version coming later in the year.
