For the first time, FIFA 21 allows players to buy cosmetic items without necessarily having to use the loot boxes (or prize boxes, if you prefer). Electronic Arts has in fact made available some elements, such as a cheer and a theme for the stadium, within the in-game store of the game.
The individual cosmetic elements of FIFA 21 are available both for purchase in the form of bundle for 700 FIFA points, or about seven euros, which through single purchase, with prices ranging from 150 to 300 points for the various elements. If, on the other hand, you prefer to buy them with FUT coins, then know that you will have to invest 60,000 coins for the bundle, or from 11,500 to 25,000 coins for the individual elements. It’s not cheap, that’s for sure.
In any case, these are cosmetics, absolutely not essential for the game. The most important part of the whole speech, however, is that FIFA 21 allows you not to use loot boxes to obtain these cosmetics. It is a matter of a few elements, of course, but it is a novelty not to be underestimated for a game like EA’s.
It could be a first attempt to test the interest of the public. Loot boxes, while guaranteeing large profits, are often criticized and in some countries, such as Belgium, they are even prohibited as they are considered gambling. Is EA considering a new path for the long term for FIFA and its other IPs?
