With FIFA 21 launching worldwide this week, it's confirmed that the voices of Martin Tyler and Alan Smith aren't available in the new game.
Tyler and Smith have been synonymous with FIFA gaming titles for over a decade, with Tyler and Smith's in-game commentary often turned into memes and included in videos on social media. But this year, there will be no option to select the legendary commentary duo for your in-game audio. If you go to settings in FIFA 21, fans only have the option to change the language and not commentary teams, which means only one commentary team is available per language.
Instead, UK players will hear the familiar voices of Derek Rae and Lee Dixon for their FIFA 21 in-game commentary. Rae is a Scottish commentator who currently provides commentary for ESPN and the Bundesliga World Feed, whilst Dixon provides punditry for ITV.

The duo were included as commentators in FIFA 20 and FIFA 19, with the duo providing commentary for Champions League and Europa League games on Kick-Off mode and Career Mode. In FIFA 21, Rae and Dixon are the game's English default commentary duo in all game modes.
In other FIFA 21 commentary news, Spanish presenter Nira Juanco will be the first female commentator in FIFA history in FIFA 21, with fans able to hear her voice in the Spanish commentary option, but UK players will have to download this within settings.
If you've bought the FIFA 21 Champions Edition or the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, you can start playing the full game right now! But, for those with the FIFA 21 Standard Edition, you will be able to access the full game from October 9.
EA have confirmed that when you purchase FIFA 21 on Xbox, PS4 or PC, you'll have access to something called Dual Entitlement, which will enable you to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, at no extra cost. The Dual Entitlement offer will let you upgrade your copy of the game at no extra cost up until the release of FIFA 22.

All progress you make or content you acquire within FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (including players, items, coins, FIFA Points, match record, and leaderboard placement), as well as all progression in VOLTA FOOTBALL will transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and back, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X and back.
EA Play subscribers have been able to play FIFA 21 since October 1, but they've only been able to access a ten-hour trial of the full game, so when the timer on the trial runs out, they will have to wait until release day to pick up where they left off. This is the only way fans will be able to try out FIFA 21, with EA not releasing a FIFA 21 demo this year.
