Feel the ball

FIFA 21 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

There could be no better phrase than that to define one of the novelties that the FIFA 21 update will include that will arrive on December 4. The interesting thing is that this feature will only be available on PlayStation 5, and as you can understand below, there is an obvious reason.


And is that thanks to the new DualSense control , the game will reproduce the impact of shots, passes, tackles and even hits the stick. The new haptic response introduced with the new controller will be expressed in FIFA 21, so PlayStation players will have that extra point of sensation on the field of play.

More real, more physical


Another novelty that this new generation patch will incorporate is related to the physics of the game. Now, a new system of interaction between the players will introduce new responses when contesting the ball. Thus, when there are plays with the ball divided and even stopped, the players will struggle, make pushes and have a greater response.

Most Real Players


As we have seen in this new generation, the graphics have improved with the new resolutions and the light effects, and that is what we will notice both on the field of play and in the players themselves. Effects such as the contraction of muscles when hitting the ball, representation of hair through filaments that respond to movement, more realistic sweat and greater definition in the representation of the players’ faces will make the models look more real than ever .

On the other hand, the contextual movements, which will feel less robotic and more human, have also been improved in order to demonstrate animations that feel fluid and natural.

Visually more attractive


But if there is something that we will notice with especially it is the image of the field while we play. A new camera called GameCam will imitate the perspective of television broadcasts, while a new lighting system will allow you to enjoy an ultra-realistic experience of the field, which will look especially striking with atmospheric effects or the presence of secondary elements such as substitutes, field managers or the own fans.


Play immediately

And of course, these striking changes would be of no use if then we cannot enjoy one of the greatest advantages of the new consoles. We are obviously talking about instant loading, a function that will allow us to start a quick game almost instantly, going from the main menu to the kickoff in less than 2 seconds.

This feature will not be available in modes other than Quick Match, so don’t expect to magically find a match in your online competitions.
