Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

With FIFA 21 (our full review here) set to get its fancy next-gen update next-month on December 4. This is the big ol' download that will take full advantage of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X hardware - and arrives free for all current owners of the game.

According to EA, it will feature "blazing fast load times, deferred lighting and rendering, enhanced animation technology, off-ball humanisation, and more". Which is the sort of thing you expect until your do a little double take and try to figure out what "off-ball humanisation" is. Some form of ray-tracing we don't know about?



EA will be showcasing the updates coming in the coming days, so stay tuned. For everything you need to know about the current-gen to next-gen upgrade process (which again is free for all FIFA 21 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) - head here.

Although it's updates don't represent a major change over last year's release, FIFA 21 still manages to bring with it some notable improvements to Career Mode, Volta, and other areas to make the latest annual release still a great game of football.

As per our review from Toby Berger.
Career Mode has seen a notable face lift in FIFA 21. Things I’ve been particularly hopeful for have finally been brought into the game, creating more options for players that want to dive into the nitty gritty of the sport as a manager. You’re finally able to change player positions over time through training development, assess and rework player roles and, most importantly, jump into simulated matches. The latter is a fantastic addition, allowing you to watch the match play out and join the action if the game isn’t going in your favour. The opposite is also true, allowing you to sim remaining time on a match as opposed to only being able to forfeit.

As someone who’s put thousands of hours into FIFA Career Mode throughout the years, these changes are more than appreciated.

Another year another FIFA, but unlike other sports titles out there EA's take on the World Game is one of constant evolution, change, and updates. In addition to looking better than ever this year the focus is on personality and expanding the footwork to clear the way between you and the keeper.

A snippet from out in-depth preview.
Even though these gameplay changes are also based on community feedback, the renewed focus on dribbling, personality, and runs, will have a far-reaching impact on couch co-op and online play. And in keeping with the theme of FIFA 21 – the first and probably biggest – gameplay change comes in the form of fancy footwork.

Dubbed ‘Agile Dribbling’ this is that thing we’ve all done once or twice on the field over the years, try to trick defenders into committing their weight and movement in one direction as our feet dance and move the ball about in a different direction. Like a martial artist showing off a form, it’s a mix of grace, skill, and beauty. That’s not to say that it’s ever worked for me (it hasn’t), but as FIFA puts you in control of the biggest football stars in the world this sort of fancy footwork opens the door to swift side-to-side ball control in a way that looks cool and adds a different way to break from a defender.
