Think about my shock when clicking on the trending Dua Lipa hashtag introduced me information not of recent music, or an album announcement – however that Dua Lipa would apparently be making her means onto the digital soccer pitch in FIFA 21. This yr retains on giving.
EA rolled out Title Replace 5 for FIFA 21 on PC at present, and dataminers shortly scoured the patch to seek out helpful tidbits of unannounced data. And that they actually did, as dataminers have now launched scans of celebrities equivalent to Lewis Hamilton and Dua Lipa, together with legendary participant David Beckham. YouTube channel NonoLoko10 launched the photographs of the celebrities, whereas dataminer Blade Johnson additionally listed Dua Lipa and Lewis Hamilton (amongst others) in a pdf of recent graphics added within the replace. The fashions will not be at the moment stay within the sport, however are anticipated to grow to be obtainable sooner or later within the close to future.
Clearly, the information in regards to the celebrities could seem somewhat bizarre – how precisely do these characters match right into a soccer sport? Gamers imagine they are going to be launched to FIFA 21’s Volta mode, which has seen celebrities equivalent to British boxer Anthony Joshua and DJ Diplo launched as playable characters. “Problem large names from the worlds of soccer, music, style, and past so as to add contemporary expertise to your squad every week in Volta featured battles,” EA stated again in September.
It’s possible you’ll bear in mind Dua Lipa beforehand supplied followers an opportunity to battle her at Dance Dance Revolution in the event that they dished out for a £277.12 live performance ticket bundle, however due to Covid-19, that individual tour needed to be shelved. I assume battling her in a penalty shoot-out is an alternative choice.
