FIFA 21 is the next installment of EA Sports' series of football simulators, developed since 1993. The game again offers both single player and multiplayer mode. As every year, we can find real players and teams in the game, which we lead to victory in the next matches.
FIFA 21, like the previous parts of the cycle, allows players to play matches and tournaments with licensed national teams and football teams from leagues around the world. Although the basics of the game have not been changed, the game offers several novelties, mainly in the field of artificial intelligence and career mode.
The game introduces two new SI systems. The first one, Positioning Personality, affects the positioning of players on the field. Thanks to it, the players can avoid offsides and block the passes more efficiently. The second one, Creative Runs, is changing the way we build a positional attacks.
In addition, changes have also been implemented in the movement of players with the ball. Thanks to contextual agile dribbling, we can now perform precise and fast dribbles to deceive our rivals.
The career mode has also been expanded. As in the previous games, the player will be able to intervene in the live simulation and observe a number of statistics, such as the match rating and endurance of the player. The game allows the players to freely choose the training scheme for their players (which will improve their attributes) and for the first time ever change the position to which they are assigned. The transfers has also been expanded so that we have more freedom to modify the squads.
In a multiplayer the main attraction remains the extremely popular Ultimate Team mode. This year, it has been enriched, among other things, with special social challenges and the possibility of co-operative game for points with friends.
FIFA 21 also features the VOLTA Football mode, introduced in the previous part of the series. It is possible to play matches on football fields located in the urban environment. However, it has been expanded and enriched with new locations and protagonists of the mini story campaign.
FIFA 21 does not provide for any cross-play modes.
FIFA 21 runs on the Frostbite engine, which results in a detailed graphic design. The novelty is the implementation of a new system of realistic tackles. The game also features a professional commentary.
