One of the most striking was FIFA 21, especially for improvements that promise to take immersion to a new level on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One.

In case you missed it: In all these editions FIFA 21 will be available on PC.

What does it mean that FIFA 21 on PC does not take advantage of the benefits of the new generation?

Before everything else, you should know that the PC version will not be a Legacy Edition, like the Nintendo Switch. No, the PC version, like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will be complete, with all the game modes and major additions to the gameplay. The difference is that it will not take advantage of some gameplay news that will be available only on the next generation of consoles.

Why did EA Sports choose this decision?

As reported above, Electronic Arts has not disclosed the details. But some PC users were quick to show their discontent, as they do not believe that it is possible that the most powerful platform to play receives the least powerful version of FIFA 21.

Others, however, have speculated on the decision and have concluded that Electronic Arts decided to bring a version to PC paired with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One because it is more practical to offer a more standardized version to PC that does not require much power, because, the more accessible the game, the better. As Eurogamer reports, many PC gamers have an average machine that more closely matches the specifications of an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 than those of an Xbox Series X and a PlayStation 5.

Similarly, it is recalled that Electronic Arts has done something similar before, since in the previous generation change, the PC version was delayed in terms of power and only the versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One took advantage of the new technology. by Electronic Arts, until it was paired with the current consoles in the 2015 edition of the title.
