FIFA 21 Launches This October, Free Xbox Series X Upgrade To Follow

EA Sports FIFA 21 is officially coming to Xbox One later this year on October 9, with an Xbox Series X version of the game also on the way, but yet to receive a release date.

Details on FIFA 21 are thin on the ground for now, but the game is said to feature "more ways to play than ever before - including the UEFA Champions League and CONMEBOL Libertadores," while the Xbox Series X version is specifically set to include "blazing fast load times, deferred lighting and rendering, enhanced animation technology, off-ball humanisation, and more."

You can now pre-order multiple Xbox One versions of the game from the Microsoft Store, and by buying the current-gen edition, you'll get a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X version as long as you claim it by the launch of FIFA 22. Your progress in FIFA Ultimate Team and VOLTA Football will also carry over to the next-gen console.

EA says that more details on FIFA 21 will be revealed in the summer.
