FIFA 21 Differences Between Versions: PS5, Xbox, PS4, Switch and PC

Electronic Arts officially unveiled FIFA 21 during EA Play Live 2020, its digital alternative to E3 2020. The most successful soccer simulator is back with an intergenerational installment, which will be released not only on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC , but also on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with some improvements that will take advantage of new generation hardware. You will be able to buy coins on U7BUY store for FIFA 21 on early October.

After knowing the content of all editions and prices, let’s review the differences between the current and new generation versions.


FIFA 21 on PS5 and Xbox Series X: improvements and free update

We start with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The new generation consoles, which will arrive in Christmas 2020, will receive a free update to FIFA 21 if we already have purchased the game on the current Sony and Microsoft platforms. It will be a “Double Version”, so we will only pay once to play this new installment as long as they are part of the same family. Thus, if we buy FIFA 21 on PS4 before FIFA 22 goes on sale, we will have FIFA 21 on PS5 completely free and with improvements.

Get FIFA 21 or Madden NFL 21 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One before the release of FIFA 22 and Madden NFL 22, and upgrade your game to the next-generation equivalent console (Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5) at no additional cost.

These are the improvements of FIFA 21 in the next gen:

  • DualSense controller haptic feedback (on PS5)
  • Ultra-fast load times thanks to the SSD
  • Delayed lighting and rendering
  • Redesigned Player Bodies
  • Spatialized audio
  • Statistics-based player movements
  • Climate loyalty taken care of in detail


FIFA 21 on Nintendo Switch: Legacy Edition

The edition of FIFA 21 for Nintendo Switch will be Legacy Edition, as was also FIFA 20 and FIFA 19. Thus, it will be an updated version of FIFA 18, the original of this console, only with updated templates, menus and others. data. There will be no game modes such as VOLTA or El Camino, which are traditionally in the rest of the platforms. FIFA 21 on Nintendo Switch is defined as “an improved staging” (new menus and improvements in the graphic aspect), with “the latest equipment and updated equipment, but without new game modes or innovations in its mechanics”.


FIFA 21 on PC: PS4 and Xbox One versión

Finally, FIFA 21 on computer (Windows 10) will be based on the version of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, not that of the next generation of consoles. In this way, some of the visual and technological details of PS5 and Xbox Series X will be requested, at least, until next year.
