EA SPORTS have finally unveiled the reveal trailer for FIFA 21, showing off new game features for the very first time. 

The online community might have thought EA Play was going to be the time and place for this. However, that turned out not to be the case. Just a crossover trailer with Madden 21 was the main attraction on that occasion for next-gen consoles.


Those left a little disappointed back in June when that event came to a close will be delighted to see what’s been packed into the July 23 trailer. There’s so much to talk about.

We have linked the trailer below, so you can take a look.

FUT 21 Ambassadors announced

When the livestream countdown first appeared on screens, many jumped over to the page source code where it was stated Mbappe would play the leading role in the game’s branding.

Three other names also featured in the code and those will be the Ambassadors of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for the franchise’s first game on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.

These include Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix, and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.


FIFA 21 release date

The Standard Edition is expected to drop on Xbox One, PC, and PS4 on October 9, with the other bonus editions allowing players to access the game three days earlier than the rest.

These are the game cases for FIFA 21 Standard Edition, Champions Edition, and Ultimate Edition.

There are three different editions for players to choose from. These include: Standard Edition, Champions Edition, and Ultimate Edition. These all have Kylian Mbappe on the cover.

Each design is a little different, however, as you can see above.


Exclusive partnerships

Liverpool are one of many teams around the world that have penned exclusive deals with EA.

Just like any other title in the series, this title has a series of exclusive partnerships.

EA SPORTS have previously announced deals with Liverpool, Real Madrid, and even La Liga as a whole, which means each of those will probably deliver exclusive content in the upcoming game.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.


As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.

Nathan Ake is a confirmed OTW player after his transfer from Bournemouth to Manchester City.

FIFA 21 Ones to Watch release date & time

We now know that the Ones to Watch is going to be up and running soon, with its first availability on the weekend of launch. Here are the dates for the cards being released:

  • October 9-16: OTW Team 1
  • October 16-21: OTW Team 2
  • October 21 onwards: OTW Teams 1 and 2

It’s worth noting that you will get a Guaranteed OTW Item if you preordered the game before August 14, and the card you receive will be based on which date you open the pack, in correspondence with the dates above.

Most FIFA promos drop at 6pm BST (11am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5am AEDT), so expect packs to be available from that time starting October 9.

So far, a small selection of players have been confirmed as Ones to Watch cards, though we expect more to be announced over time.
