There will be two separate soundtracks in FIFA 21, with the main in-game soundtrack being accompanied by another collection of music that will primarily play during the use of the game’s ‘Volta’ feature.
The ‘Volta’ soundtrack (which can also be accessed in FIFA Ultimate Team and Career Mode by changing the in-game settings) will specifically highlight grime, electronic and hip-hop music. In this collection, other Nigerians who feature on the soundtrack include Dave x Burna Boy with “Location”, Rema in “Beamer (Bad Boys)”, Ms Banks, and Nnena.
The FIFA 2021 game is set for launch worldwide on October 9, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
