FIFA 21 gameplay trailer: what to expect

The new FIFA 21 trailer promises it will “dig deeper on all the new gameplay features” set to arrive in the 2020 release. EA has teased the planned FIFA gameplay overhaul will “reward players for creativity and control.”

For those FIFA fans worrying all these new features may just be EA fluff ahead of the new release ⁠— a fair concern, to be honest ⁠— rest easy; the publishers have confirmed there will be a minor overhaul coming for franchise’s gameplay.

“Informed by the feedback from the community, revisions to the fundamentals of football in FIFA raise the game throughout the pitch,” EA wrote in a FIFA 21 update released last month.

This overhaul will include “manual headers, more balanced blocking, more intelligent passing, and increased responsiveness. This gives you more control on and off the ball,” the series publishers explained.

Creative Runs, Positioning Personality, more

This new overhaul will also see a number of new features added to the series. EA gameplay producer Tom Caleffi said ‘creative runs’ will be a “game-changer”; the same can also be said for the new ‘agile dribbling’ skill too.

FIFA 21 will also see the series AI tweaked again. That change comes in the form of a new “positioning personality” system. This should make vs-computer games “a bit more fluid.”

“World-class forwards will hold their runs to stay level with the last defender to stay onside,” the devs explained.

“Playmakers will hunt for space to operate between the lines. The best defenders will close down passing lanes more effectively to make it harder for the opposition to create opportunities.”

Team of the Week #4 is almost upon us in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. So, here are our predictions for who could be set to receive an in-form card.

After another wild round of matches, EA SPORTS have somewhat of a difficult job on their hands picking out players for Team of the Week 4 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

In the Premier League, the Merseyside Derby produced plenty of fireworks but given that no player really took the game by the scruff of its neck and dominated, it’s hard to see someone getting an in-form. 

Looking further afield, Barcelona were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Getafe, Napoli demolished high-flying Atalanta 4-1, and Bayern Munich ran riot away against Arminia Bielefeld. Players from these games feature in our predictions for Team of the Week 4. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at who could be getting an in-form card.

Jan Oblak features in our TOTW 4 predictions.

In terms of players who could get a TOTW card from the standout games we’ve already mentioned, props go to Djene, Hirving Lozano, and Thomas Muller. Muller pipped Robert Lewandowksi to the nod here, given that the Polish forward has an already had an in-form in Week 2, and will get plenty of special cards down the line. 

Elsewhere, there are nods for Marcus Rashford – goal and two assists for Manchester United – Zlatan Ibrahimovic – two goals in the Milan derby – and Timo Werner – two goals for Chelsea against Southampton. 

In the case of Werner, if he gets an in-form, his One to Watch card would also see a boost, which would make his value skyrocket.
