 The countdown to “FIFA 21” is up and churning with the new game just a couple of sleeps away. The much anticipated release of the game was been pushed back to October 9 due to COVID-19 complications and the devoted fanbase is expecting big things for the drop this year as the counterpart last year was a disappointment to say the least.

EA Sports decided not to release a demo this year and instead focused on delivering a full game experience to its fans with immersive gameplay. A variety of changes are set to be released to fix some of the major setbacks saw in “FIFA 20”, leaving fans wanting more halfway through the game cycle.

The new features in “FIFA 21” are targeting the gameplay aspect. Features like the refreshed “Collision System”, will have players see less falling over and more natural outcomes. In previous years, the AI in the game experienced many glitches like twisted limbs or simply getting stuck on the ground, making this a top priority for the developers. Another AI improvement includes “Creative Runs” , which give the players a more competitive and fresh sense of gameplay.

As the release date closes in and the hype begins to reach a peak, creators have started releasing early footage to show fans what they can expect to see in the new game. While the early footage looks promising, fans will have to wait a few more days to find out for sure if FIFA can deliver on their promises.
