Comparison, similarities & differences in FIFA 21 vs FIFA 20 in gameplay, cover star, graphics, modes etc:

‘FIFA 21’ is the new version of ‘EA Sports’ series of football simulation dated back to 1993. The game incorporates single-player & multiplayer modes. Abiding by the tradition, we find models of actual players & teams, which we take to success in the subsequent matches. ‘EA Sports studio’ is producing the new game.

It is believed that the latest version of ‘EA Sports' football game will launch on ‘PC’, ‘PS4’ & ‘Xbox One’.

FIFA 21 will later arrive on ‘PS5’, ‘Xbox Series X’, ‘Switch’ & ‘Google Stadia’. However, it is not yet clear when will it be launched on these platforms?

The game will release on Switch & unlike other versions, a lot of key features & modes are missing in Switch version. Fifa 21 on Switch is called Legacy Edition that has not been updated & it is very similar to Fifa 18 because there is no story mode, no Volta mode, & none of the fresh updates have been added.

The game will have most recent kits & team updates along with latest menu & overlays, but it won’t have fresh modes or gameplay innovations that are part of consoles & PC versions.

Those purchasing ‘FIFA 21’ for a ‘PS4’ or’ Xbox One’ before the launch of ‘FIFA 22’ will be given an extra free copy for the suitable next-gen platform.

It is presumed that the next version of the iconic football-game series for platforms - ‘PS5’ & ‘Xbox Series X’ will be an enhanced experience.

Those buying ‘FIFA 21’ before the release of ‘FIFA 22’, will likely receive free copies for the next-gen platforms. Which implies that if we start playing the game on the day it’s launched on ‘PS4’, we will be able to continue the game on ‘PS5’ with much improved audio / visuals. This offer is also valid for Xbox One users.

However, if we desire to purchase a next-gen console excluding optical drive, then we'll also need to own ‘FIFA 21’ in digital form.

As far as the PC gamers are concerned, they will not enjoy ‘FIFA 21’ on next-gen consoles. They will have to be contended with current-gen release.

‘FIFA 21’ is also coming to ‘Switch’ & ‘Google Stadia’. However, the release dates are not yet known.

The amazing thing is that the publishers are planning to add cross play feature, empowering players from various platforms to contest with each other.

FIFA 21 is developed by Electronic Arts & published by Electronic Arts & EA Sports. The game is set to be released on October 9, 2020 for PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, Microsoft Windows platforms.
