No FIFA 21 demo this season: EA rejects the trial version for the soccer simulation. The official release is set for October 9, 2020. The developers cancel the demo version via Twitter. Instead, the development team wants to concentrate on "delivering the best possible gaming experience on current and next gen consoles." EA Play members can start the season a week earlier.

No FIFA 21 demo for the new season! The manufacturer EA rejects the trial version of the popular football simulation via Twitter. Accordingly, potential buyers are not allowed to play into the new offshoot as usual. Electronic Arts is breaking with a long tradition. The reasons given by the company are to fully focus on development and the "best possible gaming experience on current and next-gen consoles." The official release for FIFA 21 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One will take place on October 9, 2020. There will also be versions for the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

Buyers of the versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will receive a free upgrade to the next-gen versions of the same console family. So you don't have to buy the game again if you plan to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X in November. Who is also in FIFA 21 (buy now € 54.99 /€ 56.99 ) want to compete in the Ultimate Team again, use the web app for the popular game mode. In the past seasons EA Sports started the web app for the "new" FIFA about a week before the release. So at the end of September you could start planning the roster for FUT in FIFA 21.

However, EA has not yet confirmed the launch of the web app in the run-up to the FIFA 21 release. By the way, members of EA Play start a week earlier in FIFA 21 and thus also in the new FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. New for the first time this season is the opportunity to compete online as a duo in FUT. You can also use it to play the popular Rivals Division together. In the past, only couch co-op sessions were possible.
