  • News Fly Your Fanboy Colours with FIFA 21's PlayStation FC Kit

    Play has no limits

    You can now swear your allegiance to PlayStation FC with an exclusive kit available in FIFA 21.

You’ll need to complete a single...

  • Soapbox Help! I Spent Money on Ultimate Team, and I'm Afraid I'll Do It Again

    Player power

    Confession: I play a lot of sports games, and I like Ultimate Team. There, I said it. Whether it’s building a roster of sluggers in MLB The Show 20’s devilishly addictive Diamond Dynasty or developing a dream team in NBA 2K21’s massive MyTeam, the card collecting modes remind me of my childhood, when I spent most of my time on the...

    Hair hair

    Push Square Towers has been abuzz with excitable chatter all evening, as we marvel at FIFA 21’s next-gen follicle physics.

  • News Not All Your FIFA 21 Progress Will Transfer from PS4 to PS5

    Ultimate Team and Volta will, though

    If you’re planning to begin your pursuit of promoting your local team to the Premier League in FIFA 21 this week, then you may want to pause before investing too much effort.

  • News FIFA 21's Career Mode Sounds Like a Massive Improvement

    It's in the game

    While the Madden NFL 21 community continues to criticise EA Sports for the lack of improvements to the series’ staple Franchise mode, it looks like the FIFA 21 team has been busy in the aftermath to last year’s dreadful Career mode. You may recall the soccer sim launching in an abysmal state, with all kinds of wacky bugs and...

  • News King Eric Cantona Narrates FIFA 21's First Trailer

    Ooh-ah Cantona

    There are no fancy pyrotechnics in FIFA 21’s debut trailer; this is a patchwork put together during a global pandemic, and it shows. Cover star Kylian Mbappé headlines the whole thing, but there are cameos for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Håland and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold. Manchester United legend Eric...

  • Gallery FIFA 21 Looks Extraordinary in PS5 Screenshots

    Back of the net

    Much like the Madden NFL 21 screenshots, we’re not entirely sure how representative of the final product these FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 screenshots will turn out to be. Nevertheless, they look absolutely staggering – particularly the image of Anfield, as scousers gather around the stadium like they used to do in the good ol’...

  • News FIFA 21, Madden NFL 21 Will Use PS5's Controller to Heighten Immersion

    Feel next level

  • News Buy FIFA 21 on PS4 and You'll Get the PS5 Version Free

    As expected

    Just like with Madden NFL 21, purchasing FIFA 21 on the PlayStation 4 will allow you to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.

This...

  • News EA Sports Introduces PS5 Versions of FIFA 21, Madden NFL 21

    No word on NBA Live 21, NHL 21

    We can safely say this trailer features football and not annoy anyone in the process. This first look at FIFA 21 and Madden NFL 21 on the PlayStation 5 is surprisingly light on gameplay – especially when the two titles will launch later this year. Alas, they do look nice – even if it’s not especially clear how...
