FIFA 21 FAQ

This year, we’re excited for you to experience next-level gaming as we bring EA SPORTS FIFA 21 to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

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.

For FIFA 21, we’re partnering with Sony and Microsoft to offer you a Dual Entitlement - meaning 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*.

 

Here’s how Dual Entitlement will work in FIFA 21:

What is Dual Entitlement?

Once you have your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, Dual Entitlement enables you to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, at no extra cost.

How do I make sure I benefit from Dual Entitlement on my PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X?

If you purchase FIFA 21 for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to upgrade your copy once you have the corresponding next generation console (PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X) at no extra cost by downloading it to your console up until the launch of FIFA 22. 

Do I have to purchase FIFA 21 digitally to benefit from Dual Entitlement?

The physical copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 also includes your entitlement to download and play the PlayStation 5 version of the game (and Xbox One with Xbox Series X), so you’ll still be able to upgrade via Dual Entitlement if you purchase a next generation console with a disc drive.

If you intend to buy a discless next generation console, you will need to purchase FIFA 21 digitally to take advantage of the Dual Entitlement offer as physical discs cannot currently be used to upgrade to discless consoles.

Will my progress on PlayStation 4 transfer to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X?

All progress you make or content you acquire within FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (including players, items, coins, FIFA Points, match record, and leaderboard placement), as well as all progression in VOLTA FOOTBALL will transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and back, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and back. Progress within all other modes including Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, etc. will be specific to the console you are playing on and won’t transfer between consoles.

How does the Dual Entitlement upgrade work on next generation consoles?

If you buy a physical copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to download and play FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X from the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store at no extra cost once the game releases. You’ll need your FIFA 21 disc in the tray to play FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 as physical discs cannot currently be used to upgrade to discless consoles.

If you buy a digital copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X will be bundled with the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One copy, and you’ll be able to download and play FIFA 21 from the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store at no extra cost once it releases later this year.

Once I upgrade can I go back to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One?

Yes, you’ll be able to play FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after taking advantage of the Dual Entitlement offer.

Any progress you make in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team and VOLTA FOOTBALL will transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and back, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and back. Progress within all other modes including Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, etc. will be specific to the console you are playing on and won’t transfer between consoles.

What if I upgrade from PlayStation 4 to Xbox Series X, or Xbox One to PlayStation 5?

The Dual Entitlement upgrade is only available when you upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Will my progress transfer if I go from PlayStation 4 to Xbox Series X, or Xbox One to PlayStation 5?

No, your progress in VOLTA FOOTBALL and FIFA 21 Ultimate Team will only transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Will I need a disc to play on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X?

FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be a digital version of the game which you’ll be able to download once the game launches later this year. If you buy a physical copy of FIFA 21, you’ll need the disc to be inserted into your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X to be able to launch FIFA 21 on those consoles. If you intend to buy a discless console, you will need to purchase FIFA 21 digitally to take advantage of the Dual Entitlement offer as physical discs cannot currently be used to upgrade to discless consoles.

Might want to edit your OP there, it's got a huge double quote.

 

A very nice gesture from EA here, which begs the question - what's the catch?

 

I assume they've calculated that, this way, their income from microtransactions will be maximized. After all, if a fan gets the game on PS4, they will spend on FUT or MUT until the PS5 launches and then likely stop as they will want to play new games on their spiffy new console. By offering the upgrade EA can lure its victims cows customers into continuing their spending into the new generation.

 

Oh well, best to not look a gift horse in the mouth, right?

These are both titles that once purchased influence their social circles to play as well, FOMO. This has practically no cost to EA if someone already purchased a version of their game, especially at release.

I mean I just see it as being able to get 2 plats (depending on how hard the list is) but could end up being the same list because UT syncs between both consoles and they would have to work that out getting trophies to pop next time you load the other console up
