With FIFA 21 set to release later this year, EA Sports is preparing to show fans even more about the game. Today, the company confirmed via a YouTube reminder that the reveal trailer for the game would be going live on Thursday, July 23.
Alongside the news that the reveal trailer is on its way, various members of the community may have also uncovered who will be gracing the cover of the game. After popping up in the first-look trailer of the game, it seems like Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe will be one of four players who may be getting the cover athlete treatment this year.
After the video reminder for the reveal trailer popped up on YouTube, users dove into the source code of the trailer and found references to four different teams and players. The four stars are the previously mentioned Mbappe, Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool, Atlético Madrid's Joao Felix, and Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland.
Shortly after being found, the names and mentions of clubs were removed. With FIFA 20 also using various cover stars, it wouldn't be too shocking to see FIFA 21 also utilize a handful of stars as well, but we'll have to wait until Thursday to see if the information turns out to be correct. In the meantime, soccer fans can get excited knowing that they'll see even more about the upcoming game in just a couple of days.
FIFA 21 is currently set to launch on Oct. 9, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
