New Frostbite enhancements aim to bring new levels of player fidelity. Fans will notice deeper definition in player physiques.

In addition to visuals, there are new pre-game cinematics. Players can see new immersive bits like team buses arriving prior to kick-off and much more.

Those who buy FIFA 21 for PlayStation4 and/or Xbox One can get the PlayStation 5 and/or Xbox Series X|S version for free. Current gen progress can then be used with next gen thanks to cross-gen saves.
