The time has come. EA Sports FIFA 21 is out now on Xbox One!
In the latest version of FIFA, all your favorite modes are back, with some brand-new additions to get excited about. Express yourself with your mates and win as one on the street and in the stadiums.
To start, we’re excited to offer you a Dual Entitlement when you buy FIFA 21 – meaning you won’t need to buy the game twice to upgrade your copy from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S once FIFA 21 launches on the new consoles. Taking advantage of the blazing fast load times of Xbox Series X|S, deferred lighting and rendering, enhanced animation technology and more will take the world’s game from visual to visceral and enable you to feel next level every time you jump onto the pitch! Learn more about Dual Entitlement here.
