Fresh off of a controversial last 72 hours, FIFA 21 is back in the news but, for less nefarious reasons. The latest installment in the FIFA series is being added to the EA Play play list on May 6.
The addition of FIFA 21 comes with its benefits for EA Play members. These include exclusive in-game challenges/rewards, FIFA Ultimate Team kits, and Volta Football gear. Additionally, members will receive a Season XP boost at the beginning of each new FUT season. Membership also includes early trials for brand new games, as well as instant access to popular EA titles like Madden NFL 21, NHL 21, Battlefield 5, and more.
Here are some of the confirmed EA Play rewards for this month:
FIFA 21 (May 1 – June 30) – Members can claim their EA Play Volta Squad Boost, which features the return of Groundbreaker Trent Alexander-Arnold and the Liverpool FC Apparel Set, as well as 3,500 Volta Coins.
Apex Legends (May 4 – June 3) – May the 4th be with Legends who claim their STAR WARS™ Weapon Charms with EA Play.
Knockout City (May 21) – EA Play members can claim their Epic Ready Up Outfit and duke it out in style when this team-based dodgebrawl title launches on May 21.
EA found itself in hot water when an internal presentation document for FIFA 21 was leaked to CBC News on Monday. The leak appeared to confirm what gamers have suspected for some time now. According to the document, FIFA Ultimate team is the “cornerstone.” Stating, “All roads lead to FUT.” The damning leak led to EA having to release a statement refuting the document’s validity.
It remains to be seen how this leak will impact the gaming publisher moving forward. Clearly, Electronic Arts sees nothing wrong with the Ultimate Team model.
