EA has released the first details for the next-gen version of FIFA 21, coming to both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on December 4. Those who already own the current-gen version of FIFA 21 can upgrade to this new version for free by making use of EA’s Dual Entitlement.
EA promises a huge leap forward in visual quality for next-gen FIFA, with a new deferred lighting system called LiveLight Rendering allowing the developer to create ultra-realistic football environments. Aside from recreating the world’s biggest stadiums in more detail than ever before, LiveLight Rendering also combines with muscle flex and strand-based hair technology to bring the sport’s stars to life with the series’ most detailed player recreations yet.
The EA Sports GameCam, meanwhile, is a new gameplay camera inspired by the look and feel of TV broadcasts. This, combined with a series of new pre-match cinematics and Big Goal Moments designed to capture the pandemonium of game-winning goals, should add to the immersion and excitement of each match on next-gen FIFA 21.
