Will FIFA 21 be on Google Stadia?

FIFA 21 is set to be available to play on Google Stadia. It will be the first time that a FIFA title features on the new gaming platform.

While we know that FIFA 21 will be available on Stadia, the details are currently quite scant, although EA Sports has confirmed that the game will be playable in winter and that more information will be released later in 2020.

It will be the second high-profile football video game to be included in Stadia's offering, following on from Football Manager 2020 which was available when it launched in 2019.

FIFA 21 will not be the only new EA title on Stadia either, with Madden NFL 21 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order also coming.

As well as Stadia, FIFA 21 will also be available to play on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X, meaning it will be more widely available than ever.

How much will FIFA 21 cost?

In order to play FIFA 21 on Google Stadia you will need to have a Stadia account, which is free. A Stadia Pro subscription, however, costs £8.99 a month in the UK or $9.99 a month in the US.

You will have to pay for the game, with the price of the standard edition of FIFA 21 set at £59.99 in the UK and $59.99 in the US, though it remains to be seen if those prices will be the same for Stadia.

Stadia Pro offers a month-long free trial in order to allow gamers the chance to figure out whether the premium platform is for them or not.

A Pro subscription gives gamers access to a free library of games and offers the perk of discounts on other games. A Stadia controller must also be bought to play games and it can be purchased for £59 in the UK or $69 in the US. If you're playing on your computer, though, you can also use a compatible gamepad or a mouse and keyboard.

When is FIFA 21 released?

FIFA 21 will be released worldwide on October 9, but it is unclear when it will be released on Stadia.

EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will be available to play on Stadia this winter - possibly in the same window as the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X.
