EA SPORTS are about to press the play button on the very first FIFA 21 reveal trailer, which is expected to give us an idea of how Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, and possibly gameplay will look on next-gen consoles. Here’s how to watch it live. 

The live stream of the FIFA 21 gameplay trailer takes place on Thursday, July 23, the same day as the Xbox Games Showcase. The trailer is set to be revealed live at 8am PT, 11am ET, and 4pm BST.

Whether it will be a part of the Xbox Games Showcase officially remains to be seen, but since they’re on the same day at the same time, it seems pretty likely that we’ll see come crossover.

The best place to catch the FIFA 21 trailer as soon as it drops will probably be on the EA SPORTS FIFA YouTube channel, where it’s already listed in the upcoming videos section. If it is part of the Xbox event, it will probably be streamed as part of that, as well. You can watch the trailer when it premiers right here with the video player below as well.

What to expect from FIFA 21 reveal trailer

Obviously, we would expect to see some actual in-game shots from FIFA 21’s gameplay trailer, along with what kinds of new features and gameplay mechanics we will have in the next iteration.

FIFA 21 will allegedly turn the humanization of its AI players all the way up to eleven, as the publishers claimed after the first trailer premiered at the EA Play event on June 18.

“From adjusting shin pads in the 89th minute to screaming for passes, player humanization unlocks the most authentic behaviors ever seen in sports games,” the devs said. “This lets you feel all the emotion of football at the highest level.”

What else to expect

Besides finally getting to see gameplay from the latest FIFA instalment, there’s also a chance we could be getting more info on the new features and ICONs coming to FIFA 21’s Ultimate Team.

We also could see a slight preview of the updated player ratings, which will definitely be nice to know for Career Mode and online seasons as well. Even if the trailer doesn’t give us the full rundown, Dexerto has comprised a list of predictions for all of Europe’s elite leagues – including the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, and Ligue 1 – in our full predictions breakdown for FIFA 21 ratings.

There’s also a chance we could find out more about Career Mode and Pro Clubs along with the new features they’ll be getting in FIFA 21. What do you think we’ll see from the FIFA 21 reveal trailer on July 23? Drop us a line on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK to let us know your prediction.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic blasts EA over FIFA 21 game face rights

AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had the whole world talking about him due to his insane scoring run in Serie A, but has opened a new debate with FIFA 21 makers EA SPORTS over his game face rights. 

His team is sitting pretty at the top of the table in Italy’s top flight, and after scoring two goals in Milan’s 3-1 victory over Napoli on November 22, much of the talk surrounding the player was about a possible inclusion in Team of the Week 9.

That being said, if there’s one thing Zlatan does better than anybody, it’s control the conversation about him.

He certainly did that on November 23, as he took to Twitter to blast EA SPORTS for using his game face without “permission” – he says.

In a series of tweets, the player said: “Who gave FIFA EA Sport permission to use my name and face? I’m not aware to be a member of Fifpro and if I am I was put there without any real knowledge through some weird manouver. And for sure I never allowed FIFA.com or Fifpro to make money using me.

“Somebody is making profit on my name and face without any agreement all these years. Time to investigate,” he adds in a follow-up.

As expected, the move has sent shockwaves on the social media platform.

The Swede is accusing EA SPORTS of using his face to make money, though his club AC Milan actually signed an exclusive agreement this year to allow the developers to use accurate face scans for the entire team. The same goes for other EA Official Partner Clubs, such as Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

There appears to be some confusion about the situation, between player, club and developer, and this story is likely to be a developing one. Should we hear more from Zlatan or other official sources, we’ll be sure to keep this article updated.

Fans of AS Roma will know the feeling of seeing their club restrict devs from using their player likenesses and official club branding in FIFA 21. Should Ibrahimovic pursue this further from a legal standpoint, there’s a chance his likeness could also be restricted for FIFA games in the future.
