FIFA 21 Next-Gen Opening Cinematic Trailer, Short Clips of Loading Times & Last Minute Goal Celebrations

EA has released their opening cinematic trailer for the next-gen version of FIFA 21, featuring Liverpool taking on PSG at Anfield. You can watch it in 4K with compatible web browsers.

The team also shared a couple more videos on Twitter, including the improvements in loading time, where you go from main menu to match in 2 seconds. The second clip highlights last minute goal celebrations.

PS5 DualSense Haptics 

From last-ditch goal saving blocks to in-off-the-bar screamers, a new DualSense controller on PlayStation 5 with rich and responsive haptic feedback deepens the gameplay experience. Sense the impact of shots, passes, and tackles with immersive controller haptics that respond to what happens on the pitch to let you feel the rhythm of the game in your hands.

Push-Pull Physics 

An expanded player interaction system brings our Real Player Motion Technology (RPMT) into the fight for the ball. Feel enhanced physicality in the battle for possession during open play and in set piece situations as players jostle, push, and pull with more responsiveness than ever before.

Sights & Sounds 

With thousands of authentic chants, captured exclusively from the world’s biggest competitions, including the Premier League, LaLiga Santander and the Bundesliga, FIFA 21 on both current and next gen brings you the ultimate EA SPORTS Atmospheric Audio experience, unparalleled in sports video games.

Next Level Realism

Next-gen technology creates a greater definition of player physique. Muscles flex after striking the ball, Frostbite™-enabled strand-based hair responds authentically to player movement for some of the games biggest stars, and enhanced realism of faces and kit cloth take the world’s best players to a whole new level of dynamic realism.

Responsive Multi-Touch Animations 

New gameplay technology enhances the visual quality and responsiveness of linked animations on the ball, enabling you to experience fluid and realistic player movement. Players now take more human contextual touches, reducing mechanical, robotic movement.

Off-Ball Humanization

From tiredly adjusting shin pads in the 89th minute to screaming for a through ball from a team mate, Off-Ball Humanization creates visual animation texture and authentic character behaviours that let you feel all the emotion of football at the highest level.

GameCam

Inspired by the look and feel of top-level football broadcasts, a new gameplay camera gives you a fresh perspective on every match. See more of the pitch to help you plan your build-up play or block passing lanes, and watch home and away fans react to the game in real time.

PreMatch Live 

New pre-game cinematics deliver an unprecedented matchday experience to immerse you in the sights and sounds of football at the highest level. See team buses arrive at the ground prior to kick-off, feel the buzz as fans enter through the turnstiles, and watch players pass through the media zone on their way to the pitch.

Big Goal Moments 

Some goals just mean more. New contextual player, bench, and fan reactions respond to the match situation to let you feel the explosive emotion and drama of a last-minute UEFA Champions League winner or a relegation-saving equaliser.

Lightning Fast Load Times 

The power of next generation consoles delivers faster load times that get you in the game quicker than ever before.  In FIFA 21, you’ll go from menu to kick-off in under two seconds*.

*Load time is representative of Kick-off mode to match on PS5 and Xbox Series X only.

PlayStation Activities

Whether your next game is a Career Mode title decider or you’re getting ready to take on the world with your VOLTA SQUAD, PlayStation Activities lets you jump straight from the PlayStation home screen into your favourite game mode to get you into the action quicker.

FIFA 21 releases on December 4 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. With Dual Entitlement, players that own the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version before the release of FIFA 22, can upgrade to the equivalent next generation console (PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S) for free. All progress made and the content you acquire in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team and VOLTA FOOTBALL will carry over. If you still have questions about FIFA 21 Dual Entitlement, make sure to visit the FAQ.

  1. It all looks great but it will be useless if they don’t fix gameplay. Fifa 21 is the worst FIFA in years  IMO. Its arcade gameplay, the  unrealistic   defensive. play and strategy that lead to way too many and easy goals being scored or conceded at every difficult level   .
    The authenticity of the game starts with gameplay. It’s useless to re-create accurate  environments if the game plays like anything but real  soccer and feels like a kids video game instead of a  true  simulation  of the sport we love

    Could not agree more.
    Pretty pictures are nice, but I want to play a game, which resembles real football.
    (And no, PES is not it, either)
    The previous comments are right, EA are professionals when it comes to close angled shots when showing off a new sports game, but like I said in another FIFA or Madden next gen article on here, IT'S ALL ABOUT GAMEPLAY, that's your beginning middle and end, screw everything elese.
    That looks absolutely breathtaking. I’m glad that I can enjoy FIFA, PES and FM. Options are never a bad thing and I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

    Is it just me or that goal by Sterling look like it was taken from a live soccer match and modified to look like a video game. Just look at the crowd reaction for example.

    • A second of gameplay was in that clip!
    • The crowd and graphics did look good though. It always looks good that has never been an issue.
    • EA need to stop bragging about load time like that's something exclusive they've figured out. Thank Sony/MS for that.
    We will need next gen goalkeeping in this version, too.  How much of a different in visual quality will there be between Star Heads and the players with more generic faces?  It looks shiny and great but there is generally a drop off in quality between the trailers and the actual game, especially the first year or two.
