EA SPORTS appear to have taken some inspiration from Forza Motorsport and have announced a brand new replay feature for FIFA 21 – Gameplay Rewind. 

This addition does seem awfully similar to that of Microsoft Studios’ Forza series, which allows players to have a second crack at something by activating it. In the case of driving, this might be a dodgy turn or a collision that puts you in fifth rather than first.

In FIFA 21, missing a sitter might be a thing of the past for those who decide to use this new feature, as you can replay big moments of a match.

FIFA 21 replay feature confirmed, but not for all modes

The new feature was unveiled as part of EA SPORTS’ gameplay reveal package, released on August 4.

In their gameplay trailer, players might have been surprised to see that a striker was able to watch their shot sail over the bar, only to re-take their effort moments later. That’s how replay works.

“Don’t worry if you miss your chance, have another go of striking it just right with new Gameplay Rewind in Kick-Off mode for a second shot at perfection,” the narrator says in the trailer.

How does FIFA 21 Gameplay Rewind work?

It’s a pretty simple feature. Stuff up a shot, or accidentally get one of your players sent off for a bad tackle? You can go back in time and replay the scenario out with Gameplay Rewind.

You can rewind the same play as many times as you like until you get the result you want. However, you can’t rewind to get back to an earlier point than your original replay.

Those who would like to use their feature, even just to test it out, here’s a step-by-step guide on how it works.

How to use FIFA 21 Gameplay Rewind

  • Jump into FIFA 21.
  • Load up Kick-Off, select the teams, and start a match up.
  • Select a part of the game you would like to replay. This might be a corner kick, a bad pass, penalty, or a missed opportunity.
  • Hit the Gameplay Rewind option in-game, which will bring you back a few seconds.
  • Replay that part and there you go, you’ve mastered it already.

Ultimate Team players don’t need to worry about it, though, as it’s only available in Kick-Off. There’s not going to be a situation where somebody misses in the last minute on FUT Champions, retakes their shot and scores – thankfully.

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
