Football simulator for Windows
FIFA 21 (FIFA 2021) is one of the most famous soccer simulators in the world. EA Sports publishes a new version each year with various tweaks and improvements. With FIFA 21, you can play in the stadium, on the streets, or try one of the other modes like Ultimate Team - FIFA 21 has more ways to play than ever before.
Compared to other football games, FIFA 21 is unrivaled when it comes to authenticity. You'll find 30+ official leagues, over 700 teams, and more than 17,000+ authentic players. The closest rival to the FIFA series of games is Pro Evolution Soccer which has more of an arcade feel to it and doesn't match the authenticity.
FIFA 21 gameplay features
In this latest installment, you'll find lots of new creative ways to perform when playing on and off the ball. The new Agile Dribbling system lets you get more creative when playing 1-on-1 situations. Achieve fast footwork using the responsive close control and take advantage of a whole new range of skills like the ball roll fake so you can get past defenders.
This time around, the in-game intelligence has received a boost so players can make improved positioning decisions. Your teammates and opponents will be better at making their runs at the right time and shutting down attacks just like a real player would on the pitch. You also have much more control breaking down defenses with three new creative runs: directed runs, directed pass and go, and player lock.
The enhanced collision system means when players bump into each other on the field, their reactions will be much more realistic instead of everyone falling over. Those critical moments like the goalmouth scramble or midfield battle for possession are more authentic and enjoyable when they occur.
EA has also made changes to the fundamentals of the games. Passing, blocking, responsiveness, and manual headers have all received improvements that raise the game's overall quality.
FIFA 21 Career Mode
Career Mode lets you take control of every aspect of your team as you try to reach the top of the league. With the Interactive Match Sim, you can enjoy the game in a whole different way by jumping in and out of the action when needed and making changes as the match continues. And with the Player Development feature, you have greater control over the training and development of your players, so you can create a team that matches your style and fix any weaknesses.
You also have tools like Match Sharpness and Active Training that give valuable insights into your squad's performance and let you set up specialized training to increase the chances your players will perform when it matters the most. You can even schedule when your players will train and rest to balance morale and fitness.
Finally, the transfer options offer even more realism so you can set up all kinds of deals and sign new talent for your team.
