Last week’s FIFA 21 announcement focused on the fancy next-gen version of the game, which is to be expected: the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are both releasing this holiday season. But it looks like the PC version will be based on the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game, if EA’s own FIFA 21 FAQ is accurate.
The official FIFA website revealed that “FIFA 21 on PC will be the same version as released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.” This is obviously a frustrating reveal for soccer fans who aren’t thinking of buying into the next wave of consoles, as both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are alleged to be getting an upgraded version of the game with some major new features befitting of much more powerful hardware. The FAQ does state that it will “have more information on it in the coming weeks,” so hopefully EA will clear up whether the PC version will be completely without a host of next-generation features.
Unfortunately, EA hasn’t said much that’s meaningful about FIFA 21 on PS5 and Xbox Series X. It’s language to describe the game is at best vague, at worst eye-rolling marketing gobbledegook. Controller haptics mean you can “sense” the impact of shots, passes, catches, kicks and tackles. “A new DualSense controller on PlayStation 5 with rich and responsive haptic feedback deepens the gameplay experience letting you feel the rhythm of the game in your hands.”
Speaking of which, that’s so disappointing, especially when it happened in the previous two generations. The first FIFA game dropped for next-gen consoles won’t be ported to PC with EA stating that the average user’s configuration as an obstacle.
In other words, the trailer last week was a showcase for the next-gen console version of FIFA 21, not the PC one. The PC version releases on October 6 alongside the PS4 and Xbox One editions, so perhaps a patch will roll out upon arrival of the next-gen version, which has yet to receive a firm release date.
