I've been looking at the trailer and can already see an issue with the defensive AI. Look at the 3-4 second footage of PSG vs Athletico and look at the back heal pass made to Mbappe.
The defended is correctly in position to intercept that pass, but doesn't even move. Already this, i'm not convinced that anything has changed. The defender should be on that ball 100% of the time, again not very convincing with the gameplay.
This statement "Explode past defenders with the new Agile Dribbling system. Faster footwork gives you more control and responsiveness in one-on-one situations, and new skill moves like the bridge dribble and ball roll fake turn provide you with the means to explode past defenders.", has no relevance if the game play is trash. This is also a similiar statement they used for Fifa 20, and again delivered nothing. Guarantee you this will be patched within in a week, where bad players will be punished for bad decisions, EA will patch this within the 1st week.
This statement "In FIFA 21, key footballing moments including goalmouth scrambles, battles for possession in the midfield, and attacking duels will resolve more naturally than ever before, resulting in smoother encounters between players as they strive to reach the ball.", sounds like 50/50 battles that was introduced on Fifa 18, and we know how this turned out, the ball every single time when performing a perfect tackle went back to the opponent. Sorry not convinced with this gameplay. Just marketing BS.
What are your thoughts guys?
