EA SPORTS are all set to release FIFA 21 Title Update #10 on Steam and Origin this week, with plans to add the February 16 patch to Xbox and PlayStation soon too ⁠— here’s all the update details, patch notes, and more.

The new FIFA 21 patch, Title Update #10, isn’t as gameplay-heavy as the last few have been, but there’s still some important changes rolling out in the Feb. 16 download.

First and foremost, Career Mode fans are getting some love from EA SPORTS ⁠— finally ⁠— with a small stamina boost. Substitute players who were added into the match were “losing high amounts of Stamina” every game. This issue has now been resolved, with the devs adding power back to the game-changing bench stars.

Eight new ‘Starheads’ and one legacy ‘Starhead’ were also added in update #10.

A major issue in Division Rivals, where no match could be found, has now also been resolved, EA SPORTS reported in their February 16 patch notes.

As far as Dexerto can tell, EA hasn’t touched any FIFA 21 gameplay features in update #10, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t jump in and have a fiddle with the game code.

The FIFA publishers have been notorious for mucking around ⁠— secretly, that is ⁠— with gameplay, even if they don’t list it in the notes. If you notice any unannounced changes or tweaks, be sure to flag it with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK.

It doesn’t look like EA SPORTS shipped any gameplay changes in Title Update #10.

The new FIFA 21 update should be deployed onto Steam and Origin by the end of Feb. 16; once EA unveils planned changes, it’s not long until they send them live. The update will then drop on Xbox and PlayStation in the next few weeks.

Here’s the full patch notes, courtesy of EA SPORTS on the FIFA forums.

Best strikers to buy in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

Building up a solid squad on FIFA 21’s Ultimate Team can be a difficult task, particularly when you’re looking for players who can consistently score goals. To solve this, we’ve put together a list of the best strikers in FIFA 21 to suit any budget and every style of play.

One of the reasons why FIFA’s Ultimate Team mode is so popular is the freedom of choice people have when building their squads. Although the meta certainly influences which players are used more than others, at the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to preference and what you’re personally looking for.

Despite this, when it comes to picking strikers, there are so many players to choose from on the market. This is especially true when you don’t have the cash to spend on the best players in the game.

That’s why we’ve put together a set of lists of the top forwards in FIFA 21 so you can have a clinical finisher upfront, for all sorts of price ranges. Keep in mind, all the players on these lists are standard base cards, not special items.
