Electronic Arts has released FIFA 21 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X/S on December 4. Players who already owned FIFA 21 on PS4 and Xbox One will now be able to claim the game on their new consoles using the dual entitlement feature. In this article, we will instruct you on the best way to benefit from the dual entitlement system if you already own the current generation version of the game.
Let us start with the fundamentals of dual entitlement. From December 4, the owners of FIFA 21 on current generation consoles will be able to download the game on the next-gen console if they buy them. Dual entitlement will only work from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and from Xbox One to Xbox Series S/X. Eligible players will be able to redeem the game at any time until the release of FIFA 22. The process is 100% free so you will only need one copy of the game on the current generation.
The way dual entitlement works will change according to the type of copy of the game, you own, physical or digital. Digital copies of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will allow you to download the game on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S immediately after the release of the next-gen version of the game. Physical copies of the game will also allow you to download the next-gen version of the game from PlayStation or Microsoft Stores. However, if you own a physical version of the game on current-gen consoles and upgrade to digital PS5 or Xbox series S, you will have to contact EA support to be able to use dual entitlement.
Dual entitlement will also allow you to transfer your progression in FIFA Ultimate Team and Volta Football from current-gen to next-gen consoles. For the other modes like Career, Pro Clubs, Online or Co-op Seasons, the progression will not carry over to the new consoles. The progression transfer will be retroactive, allowing you to switch between current-gen and next-gen as often as you want. Finally, if you buy the FIFA 21 NXT LVL Edition you will not be able to use dual entitlement.
If you have more coins than you actually need and want to make money upon them, you can sell your FIFA 21 coins to U7BUY.
