EA SPORTS are offering a way to get 20% off FIFA 21 in pre-order, and we’re going to show you how to redeem it.

As many players will know by now, EA SPORTS always gives them the chance to slash the overall price of the version they choose to buy – whether it be the Standard copy, Champions, or Ultimate edition.

We now know Kylian Mbappe will be on the cover art for each of those versions. Trent-Alexander Arnold, Joao Felix, and Erling Haaland will also be FUT Ambassadors.

EA SPORTS have since released official game covers for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, as well as making it available to pre-order online. So, let’s run through how to get a copy with a slashed price.

FIFA 21 discounts

EA has promised a hefty overhaul of attacking and defending systems in FIFA 21.
Players can’t wait to jump into FIFA 21.

If you’re already eyeing up a copy of FIFA 21 for your current console, you might as well get yourself clued up on how to get the price down via a discount. It’s pretty simple, really, but is broken into two parts.

On one hand, you can get 10% off, while on the other you can get 20%, with a small cost.

As they do every year, FIFPlay have confirmed that all you have to do is scroll through the current in-game menus at the right time.

Now that FIFA 21 is available to pre-order, there will be a pop-up in FIFA 20 you should really become aware of. A step-by-step guide can be found below on how to use it to get the price slashed.

How to pre-order FIFA 21 with 20% off

  1. Load up FIFA 20 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC.
  2. Scroll through the main menu and head over to the right side of the screen.
  3. From there, select ‘Pre-order FIFA 21’.
  4. Once done, it will move you over to the online store – which will depend on the platform you’re playing on.
  5. Place your pre-order with the discount, and away you go!

That will get you your first 10% off, and then after that EA Access will knock another 10% off. Not a bad deal ahead of the next title’s release.

How to get FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition rewards

Here’s what you get for pre-ordering FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition.

Those pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition will also get a free, untradeable, Ones to Watch item. Well, that’s if you placed your order before the timer stopped on August 14.

If you want to pre-order this edition, visit the EA SPORTS website here and click through the options. It is fairly straightforward.

How much is EA Access?

Each month, EA Access costs £3.99 ($4.99) per month, or £19.99 ($29.99) per year. As a part of this deal, players will also be able to get an additional 10% off all FIFA point purchases in-game, as long as they are active members.

FIFA 20 is also part of the EA Access online library now, too, meaning you can play the current game without buying the full version as well.


FIFA 21 pro Tekkz hits FUT Champs Rank 1 but gets worst rewards ever

Fnatic’s pro player Donovan ‘Tekkz’ Hunt reached the highest possible rank in FIFA 21 FUT Champs Weekend League for Week 2, guaranteeing him an Ultimate TOTW pack full of special cards from Team of the Week 5. If you thought it was just you getting bad rewards, wait until you see this. 

Player picks and bonus packs are all part of the game in the Weekend League. Every competitor enters the arena with 30 games to play, and if you’re like Tekkz who secured a 30-0 record, you will secure yourself the top band of rewards one way or another.

Now, every week you will see screenshots of tremendous picks on social media, with members of the community boasting about who they managed to pack.

Well, it wasn’t one of those types of weeks for Tekkz, who had to walk out of the room after seeing his most valuable pack open.

Worst ever FIFA 21 FUT Champs rewards?

On October 29, just two days before Halloween kicks off, Tekkz was given a terrible fright by opening his Ultimate TOTW pack.

This includes a full set of Team of the Week players, which typically have the best cards inside to reward somebody playing at such a high level. However, after choosing to open it up, almost instantly he said: “Was that not a walkout?” He walked away from his camera soon after, standing by his door.

There are ways to notice right away if you have a walkout, seen here in our handy guide, and clearly the Fnatic pro knows his stuff.

As he looked back at the screen, he froze. It wasn’t Joe Gomez. It wasn’t Federico Valverde, and certainly not Wilfred Zaha. Staring back at him was the In-Form Jean-Pierre Nsame, from Young Boys, just 82-rated.

Just before the FIFA 21 FUT Champs pack opened somebody in the chat had suggested to save it, but he was confident Liverpool’s defender was going to be added to his team.

Right after he saw his pack, he branded the whole thing “bulls**t” and ended the livestream. This was supposed to be a moment for his followers to see a great player walk out of the pack, but it wasn’t to be.

He concluded: “I am going asleep boys, that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’m going asleep.”

A lot of people would do the same.
