No Demo for FIFA 21, EA Confirms
Yep, the tradition is no more! Usually, FIFA demo versions come out three weeks ahead of the full game. This time around, EA is supposedly dedicating the extra time it would take to create the demo version for further improvements on the next-gen version that’s set to come out later this year, following the release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The typical FIFA demo release contains a handful of teams and basic introduction gameplay for the main game modes. You can’t mess around with the settings too much, and you have to navigate through the key feature popups after every match. Unfortunately, this year we won’t have the pleasure of seeing new FIFA features after every final whistle…
FIFA 21 Release Date and Pricing
The next iteration of EA’s soccer simulation is set to release early October. The usual release date of new FIFA installments is late September, but EA had to postpone it because of the ongoing pandemic.
FIFA 21 is scheduled for release worldwide on October 9th, 2020, but you can get your hands on it earlier if you buy the Champions or Ultimate editions of the game. They’re a bit more expensive and bring forth additional extras, so they might be worth the purchase…if you’re a hardcore FIFA fan.
Here’s the freshest FIFA 21 pricing info:
- FIFA 21 Standard– $59.99
- FIFA 21 Champions– $79.99
- FIFA 21 Ultimate– $99.99
Should you buy FIFA 21 on a current-gen platform? Is it worth the money or should you wait for the next-gen release, assuming you’ll buy either PS5 or XseriesX?
I guess that’s a decision you’ll have to make all on your own!
