More ball control, more directed runs, and other new features revealed.
It’s only two months away but EA Sports has finally released a dedicated gameplay trailer for FIFA 21, showcasing the next iteration of the franchise in all of its glory. A number of new features are revealed including agile dribbling, creative runs and much more. Check it out below.
Agile dribbling gives you more control over the ball by holding down R1/RB and moving the left analog stick. It also allows for a variety of offensive and defensive techniques. Creative runs are a way to direct teammates’ runs in the lead-up to shots – holding down L1/LB and flicking the right analog stick makes this possible.
If you’re not confident of the AI taking shots, then you can lock onto a player and take the shot yourself. Other interesting features include positioning awareness (which mirrors the real world behavior of players) and a natural collision system. FIFA 21 is currently slated to release on October 9th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
It will also release for Xbox Series X and PS5 with current-gen owners capable of availing free upgrades. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
