FUT 21: questions and answers about the upcoming release of EA Sports2020-06-22 00:00
FUT 21 has not yet been officially announced by EA Sports, but it is to be expected that there will be another edition of the franchise this year. The soccer simulator, which has Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) as its biggest rival, brought several new features in the current edition, such as Copa Libertadores and Volta mode, and the expectation is for more innovations for the next game. FUT 20 is available for PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, PC (via Origin) and Nintendo Switch.
The most awaited of all is certainly the possible launch for the new generation consoles, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X, which will hit stores in late 2020. However, there are still doubts about how the game will adapt to the world football calendar, which was heavily affected by the new coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Check out some questions and answers about FUT 21 below. U7BUY will have the FUT 21 coins at the beginning of the game!
When is the release date?
EA Sports has released the FUT 21 release date last week. The game will be released worldwide October 9, those with EA Access, however, will be able to play the game on October 1.
FUT 21 will be released for which platforms?
There is nothing confirmed, but we can expect FUT 21 to arrive on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, PC (via Origin) and Google Stadia, the main platforms of this generation. So far, nothing has been said about the new generation consoles, the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will be released only at the end of the year.
Who will be on the cover of FUT 21?
In recent years, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, from Barcelona and Juventus respectively, have been the main faces of the covers of the franchise. However, with his teams entering into an exclusive partnership with PES, midfielder Eden Hazard was chosen as the FUT 20 poster boy. Only the Belgian had a bad season at Real Madrid due to injuries, and it is very likely that he will be replaced by another player.
Will FUT 21 have Libertadores and UEFA Champions League?
For now, there is no indication that EA will lose its license to the world's top two club tournaments. Even Libertadores recently debuted in FUT 20 in the form of an update released in March.
Will we have VAR in the games?
So far, EA has not confirmed a possible introduction of the video referee (also known as VAR) to FUT 21. However, with the technology being used in virtually all top-level football championships, it is natural that it will arrive at some moment to the virtual world. Football Manager, for example, already has the feature.
Will UT is going to change?The main novelty of FUT 20 was Volta mode, which marks the return of street football from the days of FUT Street. The new mode has been so successful among gamers that it is rumored that it can win space within the UT mode, with matches of up to 5 x 5 players.
