Finally, we can see what FIFA 21 will look like on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S after the update with the next-gen improvements is released.
You can admire the two screenshots of the EA game a little further down. FIFA 21 is currently available, having launched in October, but it currently works on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S through backward compatibility. EA’s football sim will receive a full next-generation update for free next month, December 4th.
The FIFA 21 update will be free for anyone who already owns the game. So, for example, if you’re playing FIFA 21 on Xbox One, you’ll be able to play the enhanced version on Xbox Series X/S for free starting December 4th.
However, not all progress on FIFA 21 will carry over between console generations. EA had previously pointed out that progress on Ultimate Team and Volta would carry over to next-gen, but this won’t happen for online seasons, career modes, Pro Clubs, and other modes

” When we start developing for a new generation of consoles, there are ultimately some trade-offs we have to make, ” said FIFA 21 executive Aaron McHardy. ” So we decided that the time it took to make all modes transferable was best used to create new features and enhancements throughout the game. We also decided to respond to feedback from our players. As both Volta and FUT are game-based modes. servers, it made sense for us to focus on them. “
