6 best gameplay features coming to FIFA 21
Before the release of every FIFA installment, EA drops in some changes to the gameplay. The previous entry, FIFA 20 saw the introduction of Strafe Dribbling, Controlled Tackling and Comnposed Finishing, and many other small changes and tweaks to its gameplay.
This time, the devs are hitting it big. The gameplay trailer released today, promises to bring about some major changes, from a reworked dribbling style to better control of players off the ball. Below here are five of the major gameplay changes players will get to see in FIFA 21.
1. Agile Dribbling

2. Creative Runs
The through ball in older FIFA games did not let the player to take control of the run. Now, EA promises the Creative Runs feature to be a game changer. Movement off the bal is now direct, resulting in a better buildup, more organised attack and improved runs into space.
3. Positional Awareness
Footballers will now boast their Positional Awareness in the game just like their real life counterparts. This will bring a much more realistic feel to the game, as iconic strikers, midfielders or defenders will resemble their real world personalities in their gameplay, rather than just depending on their positions.
4. Natural Collision System
The player collision system was something that has been bugging FIFA players for years- players colliding down inside the box usually ended up being a game breaking mess. Now with the introduction of a Natural Collision System, players would react to collisions in a more realistic way, resulting in a more natural flow of the game.
5. Fundamentals of Football
From manual headers to long through balls, FIFA 21 is revamping some of the most basic yet most used fundamentals of gameplay. Additionally, pacing, dribbling and shooting are no longer overpowered, and particular attributes of players will be more impactful in game.
6. Gameplay Rewind
Made a bad shot, a misjudged pass, a dirty tackle or lacklustre save? FIFA 21 now has the Rewind feature for the kick off mode. The feature which will let players rewind the gameplay to a certain point, and have another go to make that perfect move.
