EA SPORTS has announced that the latest FIFA will use Dual Entitlement. That means you don’t have to buy FIFA 21 twice to upgrade your copy of the game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.
The EA SPORTS Dual Entitlement offer allows players to upgrade FIFA 21 for Xbox One to Xbox Series X or upgrade FIFA 21 for PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 at no additional cost, introducing new features not available in the previous generation. Exceptions apply. Physical disks cannot currently be used to upgrade to diskless consoles.
The physical copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 also gives you the chance to download and play the PlayStation 5 version of the game (and Xbox One with Xbox Series X), so you can still upgrade via Dual Entitlement if you next-generation console with a disk drive.
If you’re planning to buy a next-generation Digital Only-console, you need to buy FIFA 21 digitally to take advantage of the dual rights offer, as physical disks cannot currently be used to upgrade to diskless consoles!
Any progress you make or content you acquire within FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (including players, items, coins, FIFA points, match record and leaderboard placement), as well as any progress in VOLTA FOOTBALL will be transferred from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and back or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and back. Progress in all other modes including Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, etc. is specific to the console you are playing on and will not transfer between consoles.
The upgrade is only available if you upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X. So not from PlayStation 4 to Xbox Series X or from Xbox One to PlayStation 5!
FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be a digital version of the game which you’ll be able to download once the game launches later this year. If you buy a physical copy of FIFA 21, you’ll need the disc to be inserted into your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X to be able to launch FIFA 21 on those consoles. If you intend to buy a discless console, you will need to purchase FIFA 21 digitally to take advantage of the Dual Entitlement offer as physical discs cannot currently be used to upgrade to discless consoles.
