David Beckham is Back in FIFA 21
He’s back. All of us at EA Sports are excited to announce that David Beckham is returning to EA Sports FIFA, and you can pick him up for free in FIFA Ultimate Team and Volta Football just by playing FIFA 21 by January 15, 2021!
It’s time to get lively as DB7 becomes playable (or should that be unplayable?!) again. Anyone who plays FIFA 21 by January 15 – including anyone who’s played the game up to now – will get a free, untradeable, bespoke Beckham item to add to their dream squad in FIFA Ultimate Team starting December 15, as well as adding him to your team in Volta Football as our latest Groundbreaker.
Becks scooped a whopping 115 caps for England, landing third for his country’s most capped player with some heroic, unforgettable moments including that free kick against Greece. Corners? Free kicks? Crosses? Yep, got them covered.
Get ready to unleash that renowned dead-ball specialism as you whip a trademark free kick into the top bin in that crunch Division Rivals match, or bend a corner in for your mate to nod home in FUT Co-Op with Beckham’s bespoke, one-of-a-kind FUT item that celebrates his stint in the Spanish capital at Real Madrid – granted to you to add to your squad. Take advantage of this moment and build teams that fuse different parts of Beckham’s amazing career to get creative with your starting 11.
You can take Becks with you back into the streets of Paris or Los Angeles too – two cities he once called home. Only now, you’ll be under the lights of the cages in Volta Football as Beckham joins the lineup of Groundbreakers – huge names from the world of football, fashion, music and beyond that you can play as on the streets. Get ready to use Beckham’s finesse technique to whip the ball off the wall and invent angles for some typically stylish finishes and pinpoint assists.
He’ll also be joining the best players to ever play the beautiful game as the newest Icon in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team alongside many familiar faces and former team mates – Ronaldo, Zidane, Ronaldinho, Scholes, Keane, Giggs, Nesta, and more – when he drops as an Icon on December 4! More info on those DB7 Icon ratings is coming soon…
With the Xbox Series X|S out now too, we’re also excited to be offering you the chance to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 for free once the next generation experience launches on December 4! That means if you play FIFA 21 on Xbox One, or play the backwards compatible version on Xbox Series X|S, you’ll get to download and play the next generation experience for free, and you’ll even get to carry over your progress in FUT and Volta Football – including Becks – when you make the switch!
Many know Beckham for his wide array of ventures: charity, fashion, design. But there are few players who ended their careers with as many trophies. 6 Premier League titles, 1 UEFA Champions League, 1 LaLiga, and a Ligue 1 trophy – that’s before the individual honours. The man for the big occasion, an icon who embodies the spirit of winning as one, has returned. To celebrate his incredible career at the top of the game, you can pick up the special FIFA 21 Beckham Edition now from the Xbox Store and get in game in time to pick Becks up in FUT and Volta.
Act fast. Don’t miss your chance to bend it like Becks!
