The popular game mode has undergone an improvement with some interesting new features that will allow for more dynamics
It’s always all or nothing in FIFA career mode – user played a match or simulated it completely.
But in FIFA 21 EA Sports has added a semi-simulated matchmaking feature that will give players more control over their team than ever before.
Users will now be able to watch Football Manager-style ‘dot simulation’ of their match, with the ball spinning around on a mini 2D pitch, then with the push of a button to jump in and do things. Control their players as they want in a casual match.
This means that if a gamer really needs a goal to get back into the game, they have direct control to help make that happen. Or if they need stubborn defense in the dying phase of the competition, they can quickly join the fight to help control their backlines.
If that doesn’t interest you, the old options that can be played simply or emulate a full 90 minutes will remain in the game too.
When players watch a semi-simulated match, data is available to help them decide what to do next, including player energy levels, match ratings, player stats and successive options. game planning.
The ability to change people in the game or drastically change any aspect of the team’s strategy will also be an option for career mode players.
In managing teams off the pitch, features have been added to help players evolve in different ways. The position of the players will be able to adapt through the implementation of special training plans.
For example, Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in the game is the right midfielder, but with his finishing skills the England international could be retrained to add a striker role to the roster. my position.
Just don’t expect to be able to turn Gerard Pique into a striker, though a high-performing defender like Virgil van Dijk may be a possibility.
The training plans will not only help players develop new positions and skills, but also help develop attributes such as weaker foot strength.
It is clear that the additional highlights added by EA Sports would be a significant upgrade to the career mode and allow for more user interaction and control over their team.
Either way, it should definitely be an improvement on FIFA 20, which had a lot of career mode issues at release.
