FIFA 21 Update 1.09 Adds new data center to Miami and activates FIFA Playtime tools

EA today pushed a new update for FIFA 21. This is good news for North American players as EA has added a new data center to its roster in Miami, Florida. This should mean a better online experience for North American football fans.

The new update also introduces the FIFA Playtime tool, which gives players an idea of ​​how much time they spend kicking digital pigskins. You need to opt in to this feature. This can be done in-game or through the official FIFA 21 companion app on your mobile phone or tablet.

In terms of gameplay, the changes are minimal, and this patch note states that only the captain achieved the goal in FIFA 21’s Volta Football mode. This has been fixed, but you know the score – probably something else is broken during the process …

The update is currently available on PS4 and will be available on PS5 later this week. In the meantime, you can read the entire patch notes below.
