FUT 21 Closed Beta: Details and How You Can Play It2020-08-29 00:00
FUT 21 is all set to launch on October 6, on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia and PC. A handful of selected gamers will get the chance to play the most hyped football game of the year before everyone else.
A beta version of the game is an almost final version with undetected bugs. It’s given out to players to play and test the game to fix any bugs that slipped the development cycle. Each year, Sports releases a beta version of the game to iron out any major and minor bugs before launching the game officially. However, most people are not lucky enough to get a chance to play the Closed Beta as it is limited to a small number of users.
Gamers are invited to test specific game modes rather than the full game, with some people invited to test Career Mode and other UT, Pro Clubs or VOLTA. Although only particular game modes are available, these modes and the matches themselves include all the new features and gameplay improvements for FUT 21 (I wonder if could just give away some free FUT coins in the account when gamers are invited to test the UT mode, which would be really nice).
What Are The Requirements To Enter The Beta Program?The FUT 21 Closed Beta is only available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gamers need a registered Account in the United Kingdom or the United States. If you had opted to receive promotional emails from Sports, then you’re eligible to enter the closed beta.
The lucky few are chosen at random to receive codes to download the Beta, with many gamers who have received codes in the past chosen again this year to download and test the game. These Beta codes are restricted to individual users and consoles and thus cannot be traded to another account.
Sports has also expressly stated that codes cannot be sold, otherwise players could be suspended from playing the game.
Any progress made in the FUT 21 Beta cannot be carried over to the full game when it launches in October. This includes Career Mode saves or FUT 21 coins.
When Does The FUT 21 Closed Beta Launch?The FUT 21 Closed Beta emails were sent during August to lucky recipients in the United Kingdom and the United States. Gamers who have a beta code can play the game from August 14 to September 1, 2020. Each player has access to the Kick-Off mode and any one of VOLTA, Career Mode, Pro Clubs or UT. Live streaming gameplay or any footage from the Closed Beta is forbidden according to the Sports rules. Any behavior that against the rules could result in punishment.
