First FIFA 21 trailer:

The new trailer does not reveal too many details about the game. The VOLTA game mode will return once more, other parts hint towards a co-op mode in FIFA Ultimate Team, while United legend Eric Cantona seems to get a Icon card.

On which platforms will FIFA 21 release?

FIFA 21 will be available for the current console generation besides PC. Owners of PlayStation 4 or Xbox One don’t need to rush for the upcoming PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X.

Which new features are coming in FIFA 21?

As of now nothing official has been announced in terms of features and additions for FIFA 21. Fans will have to be patient and wait until August for further details.
