While the basic game is the same across the three editions, each one has its own cover star and bespoke imagery.
FIFA 21 Champions Edition is available for £79.99 in the UK or $79.99 in the US.
Early Access subscribers were able to get it at a discounted price of £71.99 in the UK or $71.99 in the US - 10 per cent off.
The Champions Edition is £20 more expensive than the standard edition in the UK, which costs £59.99. That's $20 dearer than the standard edition in the US, which costs $59.99.

If you purchase the Champions Edition of FIFA 21, you will receive the following perks:
Champions Edition features
- Three days Early Access (play from October 6).
- Up to 12 FUT 21 Rare Gold Packs (one per week for 12 weeks).
- One Cover Star Loan FUT Item (for five FUT matches).
- Career Mode Homegrown Talent (local youth prospect with world-class potential).
- One FUT Ambassador Loan Player Pick Item (Choose one of three player items for three FUT matches).
- Special Edition FUT kits and stadium items.
In comparison to the offers available when you purchase the standard edition, the Champions Edition allows you to play the game a bit earlier - on October 6 instead of October 9.
It also includes more Rare Gold Packs (12 compared with three) for FUT, as well as Career Mode Homegrown Talent, which does not form part of the standard offer.
While the Champions Edition has more to it than the standard edition, it is not as comprehensive in its offering as the Ultimate Edition, which offers early access and FUT items.
Kylian Mbappe is the cover star for all three editions, a change from earlier games which featured a different player on each.
