Today marks the release of the FIFA 21 Web App for Ultimate Team. That means anyone as obsessed with FIFA as I am can log in and start the process of upgrading their team through pack opening and trading. Plus, it means we get a confirmed picture of what players will have waiting for them in season one. Sadly, it’s pretty much the exact same stuff as FIFA 20, with a few fun changes.
I have to note of course, that there are still things coming that should change all of this up greatly. Sure, season one rewards will stay the same, but we’re not seeing the full picture. There will almost certainly be some of the new FUT events on launch day, which should pad out these rewards quite a bit. Plus, the list of SBCs and Objectives should fill out once we can actually play the game.
That said, the season pass is mostly the same. Tons of cosmetics, untradeable packs, and loan items. At the very tail-end of the season, you can unlock an 85-rated version of either Alexandre Lacazette, Marcel Sabitizer, or Juan Bernat. Given how stacked the Premier League looks to be this season, I expect most will go for that Lacazette.
The good news from all of this is that the Milestones section seems to have finally gotten some love. EA introduced it in FIFA 20, but hardly used it. FIFA 21‘s section is jam-packed with stuff to do over the course of the game cycle. Hopefully, they continually update it and don’t just let it languish like last year.
It will be very interesting to see how everything shapes up once the game is actually out. Fortunately, we only have a few more days to wait. FIFA 21 launches on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 6. It will come to PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later date.
