FIFA 21: Official Gameplay Trailer Focuses on All-New Agile Dribbling and Creative Runs

Publisher Electronic Arts has released an all-new gameplay trailer for the fast-approaching FIFA 21, putting the spotlight on some of the sports game's original features, including Agile Dribbling and Creative Runs.

According to Electronic Arts, Agile Dribbling is "a brand new way to keep close control of the ball in FIFA 21. Inspired by some of the best dribblers in real life, Agile Dribbling is intended to give you the ability to quickly move the ball from side to side to help dribblers get away from defenders, and to use fast footwork to help you create space by tricking defenders into over-committing to tackles."

When it comes to the second unique feature, it's a new way to have more control over how your attacking AI players move off the ball, "providing more creative ways to break down your opponent’s defence."

  • Directed Runs - You can now take full 360° control over the direction of the runs of your teammates by flicking the Right Stick after triggering a run (L1/LB then flick Right Stick), or after calling a teammate short (R1/RB then flick Right Stick).

  • Directed Pass And Go - Decide where your teammate makes their run after a pass by immediately flicking the Right Stick in the desired direction. This feature works with any type of pass; Ground Pass, Lob Pass, Through Ball, and even Crosses (Ground Pass example: X/A then flick Right Stick).

Although FIFA 21 will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam and Origin) on the 9th of October, its next-gen version will make its debut later this year — and you will be able to upgrade your game for the equivalent next generation console for free if you purchase it before the release of next year's FIFA 22.

To learn more about the aforementioned gameplay mechanics, take a look at FIFA 21's trailer down below:
