EA Details Next-gen Enhancements For Star Wars: Squadrons, The Sims 4, And More

With the next generation of consoles less than a week away, Electronic Arts has announced what improvements and enhancements its most recent and active games will feature on the new systems. Next-gen versions of FIFA 21 and Madden NFL 21 arrive on December 4, offering free next-gen upgrades for those who own the current-gen version. The next-gen version of Madden NFL 21 lets you bring forward progress from Ultimate Team, The Yard, and both franchise modes, while the next-gen FIFA 21 carries forward your Ultimate Team and VOLTA progress.

Thanks to the backwards compatibility features of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, your existing current-gen EA games will perform even better when you fire up your new systems.

Apex Legends on next-gen consoles gets a performance boost, bringing the resolution up to 1440p as the consoles launch. A more extensive list of next-gen enhancements will arrive in 2021.

However, all versions will benefit from improved load times and better framerates. EA Sports will be detailing the next-gen version of FIFA 21 ahead of its December 4 launch.

Better visual quality means an improved lighting model, running up to 2160p/60 FPS on Series X and up to 1440p/60 fps on Series S. Better performance takes that same resolution and bumps it up to up 120 FPS on both of Xbox’s consoles. If you have a television that supports Variable Refresh Rates, Motive added a toggle in the menu for that.
