FIFA 21 Picks Two Massive Italian Licenses With A.C. Milan and Inter Milan
FIFA 21 adds the Italian giants as two of the newest clubs to join their partnership program.
EA Sports is adding two Italian giants to their stable of partner clubs with FIFA 21. Today, the team announced new, multi-year deals with A.C. Milan and Inter Milan. The move comes just a few weeks after Konami announced the clubs would no longer be partner clubs for the PES 21 roster update. So, this is a big get for EA Sports. To celebrate, they released new trailers featuring the clubs’ biggest icons. Check out the A.C. Milan trailer below.
This, of course, will have some big implications for FIFA 21 players. EA’s partner clubs get a fully-realized version of the team’s stadium in the game. Obviously, you can already plan in the San Siro, but FIFA 21 will include some new bells and whistles to make it feel like a real match-day.
On top of that, players can expect face scans of both teams’ players. This is massive across all game modes. It’s incredibly annoying and game-breaking when a player like Lionel Messi looks just like his real-life version while guys like Alessio Romagnoli are just generic player models. Obviously, that’s still going to happen. It just won’t happen to fans of either Milan side.
It’s not all good for EA though. The announcement of two new clubs joining includes one club leaving. Italian side AS Roma will no longer be a partner club. Instead, Roma fans will have to play as Roma FC if they want to take their team to glory in FIFA 21.
FIFA 21 is set to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 6. It will also come to next-gen consoles once they release. And, before you Inter fans think I’m leaving you out, make sure to check out their trailer below for a look at Zanetti in the blue and black.
