Electronic Arts confirmed the inevitable FIFA 21 at its EA Play showcase today. As with most EA games, it's coming to Steam, and has a release date of October 3.
The next instalment was unveiled via a trailer shared with the previously-announced Madden NFL 21. According to EA, this year's game will benefit from the impending release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox One X. In particular, if you play using a DualSense controller, be prepared for some advanced haptic feedback. There's also a "new deferred lighting system," more detailed player models, and spatialized audio technology.
For FIFA 21, EA will be making a virtue of "player humanization," which is a way of saying: expect players to behave more authentically—celebrating goals harder, raging against bad decisions harder, and presumably sliding into the DMs of models on Instagram harder.
