Hi all,

If I'm wanting to play FIFA 21 on both Xbox and PC will I need to order the game twice?

Or does anyone know if its covered under the Xbox Play Anywhere program?

    ya sadly you would have to buy it twice... Only thing right now is if you order ultimate edition on xbox 1 or ps4, you can get a free version when new xbox and playstation comes out.. However, PC is a different ball game... they do not want to merge anything to do with console vs their PC platform. They won't even introduce crossplay anytime soon...

    It's a shame that cross play isn't possible, I agree

    May purchase for Xbox and see about using Origin Access Premier for PC

    That goes for any edition, not just the Ultimate.

    You could buy it on Xbox and stream it to your laptop to make it like your playing on a Computer if your internet is fast and reliable.

    I don't get why people say tons of cheaters on PC. There is cheaters on PC but not as much as you think. Also to clear things up, its not really cheating its more glitching EA's lack of support for the game. Most common thing is they will pause and disconnect and you get the lost. This isn't using a cheat. This is EA not fixing what the issue is when its brought to them. You cant minimize or you get the lost. This is also stupid but its on EA's part. Previous fifa versions you could minimize.

    I have had FIFA on PC and Xbox and played on friends PlayStation. I would never play on console again. How can you compare graphics and the 60hz gameplay with Vsync and lagg on console to the smoothness of PC? it feels like i am playing a different game. Total players are less in PC than Xbox and Playstation, however the gameplay is 100% more smoother and enjoyable than console.

    Most of the cheating on PC is related to Ultimate Team. But when I play online seasons like in the case of FIFA 17 PC which I have played over 3 thousand matches these past 3 years I haven't experienced any cheaters of that sort aside from some disconnection cheaters who manage to quit without you getting the win.

    Obviously until EA do not fully eradicate the cheating in online play for PC, crossplay is a liability! It is about time EA Sports include anti-cheat system like Punkbuster or VALVES VAC anti-cheat system and bannish players and include a warning logo to cheaters in their Origin accounts.

    This will indeed deter players from attempting any cheats especially if these cheaters have to open up a new Origin account with a blank game library. I know this will make many cheaters feel afraid of and for this reason alone they won't have the guts to cheat.

    EA have been more strict with FPS games. It's sad that a game like Battlefield Bad Company 2 PC from 10 years ago has Punkbuster ant-cheat servers with the punkbuster software being a necessity to enter these servers, yet not a single game of FIFA for PC has had that!

    EA Sports can do it, but they have to be serious about it. Now I don't know whether they are deliberately not implementing it so that more people remain on the console version. It may well be a marketing strategy.

    I'm sorry bro, but you just don't know what you are talking about.

    It's not glitching. It's really cheating. Some examples of what those cheats do :
    - Always Green Time Finesse Shoot
    - No Fitness
    - Legacy Defending
    - 5 Star Weak Foot for all Players
    - All Traits
    - All Specialties
    - Change Workrate

    Of course, not to mention the disconnect part, that is a cheat too because the player "add goals to himself" and then "send the flag that the game is over" to EA servers, therefore he gets the win and the other player just get a "loss" and disconnect from EA servers.

    Those are the main problems, mostly on FUT of course, as in Seasons there is not much reason to use those cheats.

    Also, I'm not saying that the game doesn't have glitches, like the ALT+TAB issue. But thats another problem and a different topic.

    You probably played vs many cheaters if you are on PC, you just might not have realized it.

    Correct. I've only mentioned a few of the hacks. There are also WL Win Stats before the game starts, among other things.

    PC is really horrible. Career Mode is also totally broken unfortunatelly. EA can't do 1 thing properly, it's really incredible.
