EA has revealed FIFA 21’s major additions to its Career Mode, following years of players’ criticism about its lack of changes.
The announcement came via FIFA 21 official website. EA Sports has posted the 8 key changes and additions to the Career’s static mode. Most of these changes seem to add more emphasis to the game’s management feature.
The changes include Interactive Match Sim, Revamp Growth System, Match Sharpness, Active Training, Activity Management, Enhanced Opposition AI, New Ways to Sign Players, and Set-Up Options.
To know more about them, check out the details below:
This feature is tied with the Match Sharpness feature. Players will be able to organize group training sessions, which will improve their athletes’ sharpness, such as finishing or tackling training.
This is another Football-Manager feature, which allows the players to manage how much training and rest their team will get in between the matches. This balances the Match Sharpness feature.
Enhanced Opposition AI
This improves computer-controlled opponents will now be more intelligent when attacking and defending. AI opponents can now make more informed decisions to keep the game fresh.
Interactive Match Sim
This is the most significant change mentioned so far for the game. It looks to be a stripped-back management experience of the Football Manager. Players will jump in and out of matches while using a management view to make tactical changes during a game.
This feature is a new attribute that allows players to control how their athletes perform in crucial situations.
New Ways to Sign Players
The Career Mode will now feature a Loan-to-Buy deal with optional and mandatory future transfer fees. It also has player swap proposals.
Revamp Growth System
This feature will allow players to take a more active view of the players’ development in training. It will also enable the player to train their athletes in new positions.
Before players start their Career Mode, they will set elements to make the experience more or less realistic. This includes Authentic Transfers and Financial Takeover.
FIFA 21 is scheduled to be released on October 9, 2020, for PS4, Xbox One, and gaming PC. The game will also be launched for next-gen consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Further details about the game will be revealed this month, according to the developers.
