FIFA 21: Full Analysis of the new features and improvements coming to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT 21)

EA Sports has released the official trailer for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team on Monday. They have highlighted all the new improvements and features that they are bringing to FUT this year.

So here’s a detailed analysis of all the new features and improvements EA Sports are bringing to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team:

FUT Events

EA Sports are introducing two types of FUT events: Community events and Team events.

In Community event each player will contribute to a global XP pool and when the XP reaches the specified amount each player who has completed at least one objective will get the rewards. Meanwhile, in the Team event, you need to choose one team out of up to five teams before Team events begin. After the event ends, the winning team’s players will be rewarded.

FUT Co-op

This is one of the most hyped features EA Sports are going to introduce in FUT 21. EA Sports focused on providing meaningful ways to play with friends. You can now play online cooperatively with a friend be it in Squad Battles, Division Rivals or FUT Friendlies in FUT 21.

Core Mode Improvements

In FUT 21 you will have an alternative placement method to help you find your level in Division Rivals. The first 30 matches played in Squad Battles will factor the difficulty you play at, and the results of your games, into your placement Division.

Another thing which has been added is the new coin rewards for promotion. Each time that you reach a new Division in Rivals, it’s now more rewarding through a one-time coin reward that is added to your club immediately upon promotion.

EA has also introduced Division Rivals match cap. The weekly score will be determined by your first 30 matches. After that playing Rivals won’t increase your weekly score but will still help you in fulfilling Objectives, earn higher Skill Ratings, and climb to new Divisions.

Earlier, there were 5 divisions in Rivals, which has now been increased to 6 divisions. The Qualification point for FUT Champions has also been reduced to 500 points from the previous 2000 points requirements. The Leaderboard has also been updated to Top 200 instead of the previous Top 100.

Meaningful Moments

Previously, increasing a player’s rating was limited to the six face attributes on a player item: Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defending and Physical. This didn’t allow EA to target specific attributes to be increased based on the specific events that happen in a match.

From now on, if Trent Alexander-Arnold was to receive a Moments Item to celebrate him as a dead ball specialist, EA Sports will be able to raise his Free Kick Accuracy to new heights without impacting his short and long passing. This feature will help to better reflect a player’s on-pitch abilities in FUT.

FUT Stadium

This is a new addition to the game. Previously you could only play in a pre-build real-life stadium. Now you can customize and build your own stadium.

When you begin FUT 21, you can customize your team’s badge, ball, kits, default celebration, home tifo, stadium theme, crowd chants and base paint colour for your stadium. As you continue to play, and complete milestone objectives, you’ll unlock new locations for tifo, commentary club names, sound and visual goal effects and space to show off the trophies you’ve earned this year.

LIVE FUT Friendlies

With Live FUT Friendlies, EA Sports has combined Squad Rules, with the different House Rules in Friendlies, to create fun and diverse new ways to play that will be active for a limited time.

For example, squad rules can be configured to simple rules like ‘Max 3 players from the Premier League’, or ‘Silver or Bronze players only’. As well as more advanced rule sets like ‘Max 2 from the same league, minimum chemistry 100’.

They will also occasionally create Live Friendlies paired with Objectives with a limited number of total games. They are trying to bring a new dimension to the game that will really create a variety of new ways to play the game year-round.

Icons: The FUT 100

FUT 21 will feature a whopping 100 Icons, which is 11 more than FUT 20. Check out all the 100 FUT 21 Icons: EA Sports reveal all the new 11 Icons which will be available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

Removal of Fitness and Training Items

All players in FUT 21 will start every game at full fitness. Player stamina will still be an important factor inside a match but EA Sports has decided to remove the fitness criteria so that each player returns to 99 fitness after each match.

EA is also removing all Training Items from the game. Fitness, training and healing related staff items have also been removed from FUT 21.

Author’s take

EA Sports has done a good job by listening to the fans and including exciting new features and removing the least liked features. Till now, FIFA 21’s Ultimate Team mode seems to be winning the race but still, it will all depend on the gameplay which can be truly tested after the game releases on 9th October worldwide.

EA Sports has already opened the pre-order links for FIFA 21 and is offering a special FUT item if you pre-order the Ultimate Edition within 14th August. You can also pre-order FIFA 21 from Amazon in India.
