FIFA 21 Release Date
EA has announced the release date of FIFA 21 will October 9th 2020.
If you decide to get an upgraded edition of the game, you'll be able to play the title from October 6th.
Ahead of the release of any FIFA game, fans often anticipate the release of the web app in order to begin making those all-important FUT coins as early as humanly possible.
Typically, the web app for FIFA is released approximately ten days before the release of the game.
Players can access the app and begin trading FUT players in order to have the best possible team as the game is released.
EA Access & Early Access
EA Access members usually receive ten hours of gameplay on the full release of the game way before the full game is in the hands of the general public.
For FIFA 20, Access members were able to begin their ten hours on September 19th 2019 so expect it to be around the same time for FIFA 21.
Alongside getting some early game time, being an EA Access member also gets you a discount on FIFA Points.
Handy if you decide to invest some money into creating your ultimate team.
Before the demo is released, there is another way of getting a sneak peek at what the next FIFA game will be like.
Invites for the closed beta are expected to be sent out to those lucky few anytime between July 25th and August 7th so don’t forget to check your emails!
The beta for FIFA 20 was available for 13 days in August, allowing players to test game modes such as FUT, Volta Football and Career Mode.
It is likely that the beta will be available for players around this time this year for access to the FIFA 21 beta.
The demo is the first chance for fans to get their hands on the new game.
The demo for FIFA 20 was available to download on September 10th, a whole 17 days prior to the release of the full game.
As always with a demo, fans can expect it to be released around the same time and feature the likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich, PSG, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and FC Barcelona.
