Like every year, it’s the match between EA Sports and Konami for their game FIFA and PES . For the 2020/2021 season, which game to choose? Today we are offering you some answers.
FIFA 21 VS PES 202 (0) 1
If this year EA Sports released a new opus of its famous football simulation, like every year, Konami for its part has made the choice to only update the game from last year. There is no PES 2021 in order to focus on real new features in 2022 for next-gen consoles. So there are no new features on PES , apart from the roster update and the introduction of a UEFA EURO 2020 mode where you can simulate the competition that will take place next summer.
FIFA 21 for its part has improved its career mode with many new features in team management, Volta mode (street football) is now available in online multiplayer and Fifa Ultimate Team mode can now be played in cooperation.
In terms of graphics FIFA 2021 and PES 2021 are equivalent. One uses the Frosbite 3 motor, while the other uses the FOX motor. We will notice that PES performs a little better on the eyes and hair of players, but that is not what we will pay the most attention to while playing. We let you watch the two videos to form your own opinion, it all depends on your sensitivity.
In terms of club licenses, FIFA is still very far ahead of PES with 700 licensed teams in 37 licensed leagues . PES for its part is once again betting on partnerships with big teams such as Juventus Turin, FC Barcelona and Manchester United.
In terms of national selections, FIFA 21 is limited unlike PES 2021 which allows us to play teams from all over the world like Morocco, Algeria, Ukraine, Jamaica, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Thailand or Qatar.
In terms of price, PES wins the round. Konami’s game is available for € 30, while FIFA 21 is priced at € 70. If you just want a cheap football game, you will have to look to PES 2021 instead, if you want something new it will be FIFA 2021.
