FIFA 21 TITLE UPDATE #3 brings a lot of improvements and fixes

If you have been playing FIFA 21 for quite some time now, you might have faced a lot of issues during the play as there were quite a lot of bugs actually. I’ve myself been not able to play Co-ops with my friends many times along with glitches and bugs in Pro Clubs, Kick-Off, FUT and Career mode.

Volta Football lovers like me were annoyed with not being able to match with opponents and the stutters while playing the game. On the other hand, a lot of improvements have been made on the overall gameplay as well, so here are all the changes that the new FIFA 21 TITLE UPDATE #3 brings:

Kick Off

Addressed the following issues:

  • When viewing replays during a match played with Artificial Turf enabled, some kits were incorrectly displaying.
  • Inconsistent capitalization of some player names.
  • When selecting a Kick Off VOLTA FOOTBALL 5 vs 5 match, the Miami and New York stadiums were incorrectly available.
