FIFA 21 Standard Edition, Champions Edition and Ultimate Edition release dates

After months of anticipation, FIFA 21 is out now on Xbox, PS4 and PC, but only if you've pre-ordered a certain edition of the game.

That's because there are actually three separate editions of FIFA 21, which are the FIFA 21 Standard Edition, FIFA 21 Champions Edition and the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, with all three editions being priced differently, have different perks and bonuses, and some even have early access too.

EA Play subscribers have been able to play FIFA 21 since October 1, but they've only been able to access a ten-hour trial of the full game, so when the timer on the trial runs out, they will have to wait until release day to pick up where they left off.

FIFA 21 has a worldwide and UK release date of October 9, but there are some editions which give players early access to the game, as well as bonuses like packs, loan items, player picks, special kits and more.
