EA Sports just released the new FIFA 21 in Malaysia, and you can get it for your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, or on the Steam platform.

The gaming company has also partnered with Sony and Microsoft to offer you Dual Entitlement, meaning you get to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 for free if you're changing from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Here's a first look at the gameplay and all the new features:

At first glance, FIFA 21 looks quite similar to its previous releases. However, the more you play it, the more you'll notice the small adjustments that have been made to the game, resulting in the smoothest FIFA gameplay experiences ever.

FIFA 21 features all-new dynamic attacking systems that will make games more competitive and exciting. Passing and crossing have also been improved, along with better positional intelligence from AI attackers, giving you lots of opportunities to score throughout each game.

One of the new features is Agile Dribbling, which allows you to unleash your creativity in 1-on-1 situations

You can now mimic your favourite players' dribbling moves with Agile Dribbling, which lets you quickly move the ball from side to side to shake off defenders. You can also use fast footwork to create space for a shot or trick defenders into over-committing for a tackle.

Every player in the game can use Agile Dribble, but the higher a player's rating and attributes, the quicker and more precise they will be at keeping the ball at their feet.

FIFA 21 also makes it easier for you to set up through ball plays with the Creative Runs feature

It's frustrating whenever you try to make a through ball pass, but your players don't know where to run and you end up losing possession of the ball.

However, FIFA 21's Creative Runs feature gives you better control over your attackers' movements with more ways to break down defences. For instance, after you pass, you can take full control over the direction your teammate runs.

On top of that, FIFA 21 has also increased the positional awareness of each football player, putting them in the right place at the right time. A newly re-imagined collision system also creates smoother player interactions across the pitch - you won't see players falling over each other as much, especially between goalkeepers and attackers.

You can play a variety of different modes on FIFA 21, including the Career Mode that lets you manage every moment of your team's journey

With the interactive match sim, you can control key moments during the game like penalties and free kicks. You can also make changes directly from the sim as you monitor each match. Besides that, you get to plan your team's training schedule to make sure each player is ready for the next game.

Another cool feature in FIFA 21 is new position training, which lets you turn marauding right backs into right wingers, goal-scoring midfielders into false 9s, and more, while new development plans let you focus your squad’s development in the areas you want to match your team’s style of play.

With FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, you can also unlock 100 of the greatest players of all time like Eric Cantona, Petr Cech, and Samuel Eto'o
