How to Upgrade FIFA 21 to Next Gen

This year, EA SPORTS will deliver distinct FIFA 21 experiences across current and next-generation platforms. New innovations unlocked by the power of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, like blazing fast load times, deferred lighting and rendering, enhanced animation technology, off-ball humanisation, and more will take The World’s Game from visual to visceral, enabling you to Feel Next Level every time you step onto the pitch. Through partnerships with Sony and Microsoft, EA SPORTS will offer Dual Entitlement, creating ways for players who purchase either an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 to upgrade their copy of FIFA 21 from prior generation Xbox One or PlayStation 4 platforms at no additional cost. This means that you won’t need to buy FIFA 21 twice to upgrade your copy of the game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X. This offer will be in place all the way through the FIFA 21 season, up to the release of FIFA 22, so players can upgrade whenever they first purchase their new console within that period.
