EA Sports have announced that David Beckham, the footballer who needs no introduction, will be coming to FIFA 21 players as a freebie, provided you play the game by January 15, 2021.
As long as you play FIFA 21 on PC (Steam or Origin), PS4, PS5, Xbox One or Xbox Series X by the above date, you'll be eligible for the Becks freebie.
The freebie will start going out from December 15, 2020, and those who meet the above conditions will get an untradeable, one-of-a-kind David Beckam item to add to your FIFA Ultimate Team squad. We're talking about the 03/04 season when the legendary English midfielder made his debut for Real Madrid, so it's safe to expect Beckham in peak condition.
"Beckham's ratings on his untradeable item are reflective of his LaLiga debut for Real Madrid. The ratings are different than those of his ICON items, which will reflect three distinct eras of his career", EA wrote.
If you're the type of FIFA 21 player who prefers the streets, then no worries as you will also get Beckham as a Groundbreaker in Volta Football.
Note that the offer applies to all the FIFA 21 versions, except the FIFA 21 Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch. Moreover, if you upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X / S, you'll be able to carry over your FUT and Volta progress to the shiny new next-gen console, David Beckham included.
If you somehow needed a reminder, EA posted a lengthy summary of Beckham's career on their website , as well as a FAQ on anything you may need to ask in regards to the midfielder's addition to FIFA 21.
