The FIFA 21 closed beta is finally live and players have been uncovering some highly sought after details during their trial run – including the soundtrack as well as Roma’s new name and look.

Each year, prior to the demo and EA Access period, some lucky FIFA fans are invited to the closed beta. This could be because they’re a hardcore Career Mode player, one of the best in Ultimate’s Team FUT Champs, or thanks to the random luck of the draw.

With it being a beta, plenty of things can be changed as player ratings aren’t set in stone, there are general kinks to work out, and because a late transfer might shake up the look of a number of top teams.

Though some things do stay the same, and this year, we’ve gotten some early details.

FIFA 21 soundtrack

Aside from the gameplay, transfers, and new modes, the new FIFA soundtrack is always a big talking point between players. Plenty of fans want to see their favorite hits make an appearance, but it’s usually the unknown tunes that get stuck in people’s heads that everyone remembers more. 

This year is set to be no different, as the street vibes and sounds of the VOLTA mode will be incorporated in the overall soundtrack and not just locked away.

Below, you can check out a list of the current songs on the FIFA 21 soundtrack according to SportBible, and if more are added, we’ll be sure to add them in.

Roma badge, name, and stadium in FIFA 21

At the beginning of August, it was announced that Italian giants AS Roma wouldn’t have their official kit, badges, or stadium in FIFA 21 after agreeing on a licensing deal with PES. 

In the FIFA 21 beta, it has been revealed that they were be called Roma FC, play at the Stadion Olympik, and have a similar badge to that of Sivasspor in Turkey. 

No Serie B in FIFA 21

On top of that, some players have reported that Serie B is not in FIFA 21. Whether this is because of EA losing another licensing deal or if they haven’t agreed on an extension, is unknown.

In terms of the soundtrack and Serie B, these could change once the game launches in October, but it’ll be up to EA.

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is worth north of 500,000 coins in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, which is an absolutely whopping amount to pay at this stage of the game. But, a viral clip of the defender proves why his price tag is so enormous. 

Last season, when the Merseyside club made securing their 19th English league title a breeze, some fans were calling for their Dutch center back to be given a statue. Some in jest, while others were quite serious about it for the future.

He’s been a real game changer for the club since his arrival from Southampton, and earned a 90-rated Ultimate Team card in FIFA 21.

With the game rolling out on October 9 for all editions, there’s not really been enough time for the market values of players to settle just yet. According to the FUTWIZ database, he’s valued at over half a million already, on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Van Dijk FIFA 21 clip goes viral

As usual, members of the game’s online community have been sharing game clips and screenshots of their best findings since release day.

One video in particular has been doing the rounds like no other, showing the central defender making the most of new AI blocks in-game. Though, it’s fair to say it’s no ordinary block.

The ball comes pinging off the left boot of Mohamed Salah, and looks set to hit the top corner of the goal, before van Dijk flies across to the ball and turns it behind for a corner in extraordinary fashion. You’ve got to see this.

The video, posted by Xav Salazar, has racked up over 2.6 million views at the time of writing. Nobody can quite believe what they’re seeing, but yes, van Dijk looks to be worth the hefty price tag he commands.

If he was doing this game in, game out, you wouldn’t even need a goalkeeper.
