FIFA 21 is releasing globally on 9th October, EA has already confirmed. Sadly, EA had cancelled the plan of releasing a demo for FIFA 21.
The game will be available to all gamers if they have already pre-ordered on 6th October (Champions and Ultimate Edition) and 8th October (Standard Edition). The Windows pre-load date is on 28th September.
EA has also revamped their EA and Origin Access subscriptions into EA Play and EA Play Pro (available only on Origin). If you’ve EA Play Pro subscription, you’ll get the game on 1st October, 10 days before the global release of FIFA 21.
FUT 21 has already arrived!
So now, coming to the main part! Even if you don’t have EA Play Pro subscription, but have already pre-ordered FIFA 21, you can play the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team starting from right now. Here’s how.
Go to the FUT 21 Web App.
You will need to sign in with your origin ID associated with FIFA 21. You will get 4 steps to choose which country starter pack you want, your home and away kit along with club badge and a loan player.
As I have pre-ordered the FIFA 21 Standard Edition, I got only one loan player pack and chose Trent Alexander-Arnold as I plan to do a Premier League FUT team this year (I had a LaLiga FUT team last year).
You can now check all the current Season objectives and Squad Building Challenges (SBC). The transfer market is also open but sadly you won’t have any FIFA coin cause you can’t play any FUT match. Although you can sell some of your players to get FIFA coins.
You can also now complete certain SBCs (I completed the starting SBC and got a 2 player pack) and open some packs (I had accumulated some FIFA 21 reward packs while playing FIFA 20). You can also edit your team formations and tactics and make your team ready so that you can play FUT matches as soon as FIFA 21 is ready to be available for playing. Here’s my initial team as of now.
So now, you can enjoy building your FUT 21 team even before the game officially releases on 9th October worldwide.
If you haven’t purchased the game yet, hurry up and pre-order it from Amazon.
