Game developer Fifa EA Sports promises that the next generation version of Fifa 21 will include new technology to make it even more realistic.
Next year it will be released for both existing consoles and the new Xbox Series X and Playstation 5.
But EA says that newer consoles will benefit from more advanced technology.
The Fifa series remains one of the most popular video game franchises in the world.
Despite regular criticism that the annual game is often very similar to the previous year, it had sold over 260 million copies by 2018.
EA says his new title will include more realistic player movements, which he believes will be “the most authentic character behaviors ever seen in sports video games.”
Next-generation editions will have significantly shorter load times, with the PS5 version taking advantage of tactile feedback on the console’s DualSense controller. New rendering and lighting techniques will also help increase the overall realism of the game, EA promises.
And fans inside the stadium will also be more interactive, even by participating in the celebrations.

Fifa 21 will be released worldwide in October, before the launch of the new console.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions, with their advanced features, will be available later, but EA offers a free upgrade path for players who purchase the game in the previous generation in advance.
However, Nintendo Switch players will not be able to experience any of the new franchise models or game innovations.
The low-power portable console will instead get a “legacy edition” that will include only new kits and teams and an updated menu and overlay system.
But EA’s promise to offer its more realistic experience may disappoint some fans after critics have suggested that Fifa 20’s new level of realism made the game less fun.
Details on the game’s career mode or the five-time mode are yet to be announced.
However, EA has promised to reveal more about the game in the coming months.
