PS5 pre-orders begin today ahead of its November 12 release – and while FIFA 21 is not among the first batch of games released for the console, you can still get it today to play it on release.

With the new PlayStation's backwards compatibility with PS4, pre-ordering FIFA 21 for PS4 ahead of its own October 9 release means you could be playing the latest FIFA on a next-gen console as soon as the PS5 comes out.

Of course, FIFA 21 will get its own PS5 version at some point – taking advantage of the new console's higher specs for better graphics and gameplay – but if you're looking to invest in a PS5, this is the only way right now to ensure you'll be playing FIFA on it as soon as your next-gen console arrives.

The PlayStation 5 is available in two versions: the main console with all the trimmings will set you back £449, while the digital-only version is a comparatively peanuts £359.

The cheaper digital console will only play digitally downloaded games – so make sure you don't purchase a physical copy of FIFA 21 on disc if you plan on buying the lighter hardware.

While FIFA 21 may not have a PS5 release yet, you can already pre-order some PS5 games: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, NBA 2K21, and Fortnite: The Last Laugh bundle are available.
