Expecting PS5 game play? Obviously the core gameplay will be the same but I want to see some shiny new graphics.

HELLO
All I've wanted in Fifa for the past 10 years is some depth in clubs. I am also ready for disappointment.

I’d love a decent career mode. The most neglected area which if anything has regressed used to be able to create your own team and kits, get sponsors decide where the team celebrates a win or goes for team bonding meals.

What do we reckon the new feature will be?

Strategical defending
Intuitive attacking
Precision meandering?

360 innovation (going round in circles)
Active touch
Pass mastery
Controlled aggression
Improved AI

I broke the cycle last year. After years of saying "it's the same shit and I'm not getting next year" I actually didn't get it. Brilliant decision. So much time saved from the Ultimate Team grind and so much anger avoided.

I'll see what people say about it first when it's out on the new consoles. If it sounds like they're making use of the next gen stuff I'll have a closer look, otherwise, feck that. I assume they won't be.

Spoiler:
Gameplay is another step backwards for the fourth year running
No notable improvements for anything, anywhere, at all
BUT
New modes on UT!
New packs on UT!
New ways for them to scam kids out of their parents money on UT
And some shit Volta Street mode no one will bother with while we quietly remove other modes and leave the rest totally unserviced, like career or online seasons or pro clubs.

To be fair I feel like the first Fifa on the ps4 was a good jump, and same with the Xbox 360/ps3 from the generation before. So I'm looking forward to it. Don't have that big of a problem with the year after year similarity really, its a football sim after all and the slight updates/changes are enough to freshen it up enough for me to justify buying it given the hours I put in over the year.... but still is nice when they make actual changes. So hoping for the best.

An interesting, in-depth and intuitive career mode or there is no point

In true and time honoured tradition they'll rename an existing feature and sell it as a fresh one

Career Mode will now be Journey Mode.
Finesse finish will now be Precision Placement.

I broke it for FIFA 19 but relapsed and got FIFA 20, I think overall it’s stressed/angered/annoyed me more than the joy I’ve got out of it. I’m gunna say I won’t get this one now.

Maybe they’ll be finished with Frostbite. A new engine would be really cool.

Even though I haven't bought a FIFA since 17, I still get a buzz when the new one is announced. I guess in the faint hope that they might actually do something groundbreaking with it. Been a shitshow since they focused on the UT crowd.

Not sure where this talk of new engine has come from.

I highly doubt it. Also the game will be free like Madden for PS5 and Series X if you have bought the digital copy on current gen consoles. So I don’t see big differences between all of them besides better graphics on the new consoles.

The first Fifa (15?) on PS4 was much smoother and better animated than it was on PS3. The difference wasn’t huge, but it was noticeable.

Yeah but they had to make a new version for PS4 because there was no BC or smart delivery option. It had to be made from the ground up. That’s not the case this time.

Not entirely true. They didn't have to make it from ground up, could have easily made it compatible with PS4 but the power new consoles allowed them to make the animations "smoother and better animated", together with slightly improved graphics. I am not expecting a new engine for FIFA 21 but we will most likely see a similar upgrade.

Any chance any time soon Ultimate team will be removed due to the gambling nature of it ?

I think only then you sill begin to see significant changes to the game , hopefully it comes soon because i find playing against the AI unplayable due to how boring it is.
