Console only patch

by Damian Seeto


Update 1.25 has arrived for FIFA 21, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

A few days ago EA Sports released a new update for FIFA 21 for those that play the game on PC and Google Stadia. Well today that same patch is now available for those that own the game on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and Xbox One. Please remember the Nintendo Switch version is different and doesn’t receive these patches constantly.

Anyway, the new patch is update #18 and it addresses a ton of issues with the FUT mode. Some changes and fixes have also been made to Career Mode and VOLTA Football too. Updated kits and team names have been added as well. The patch is number 1.25 on PS4 and version 01.000.018 for PS5 owners.

You can read the full patch notes posted down below.
