As the FIFA 21 season has just begun, PC gamers have discovered a not-so-appreciable bug limiting crossplay between Origin and Steam platforms. Indeed, since a patch on Tuesday, October 6 on the early release of FIFA, it is now impossible for players on both platforms to play co-op on all game modes, including FUT.
If EA had confirmed the presence of this crossplay system between Origin and Steam, it would seem that the patch of Tuesday October 6 now prevents any play between the two platforms. So, whether it's a friendly match or FUT coop, players can no longer connect if they have purchased FIFA 21 on two different platforms.
Worse, it even seems that players with EA Play Pro access cannot play with players who have purchased FIFA 21 on Origin.
For the moment, no solution seems to work while EA has not communicated on this subject. Therefore, we now hope that a new patch will solve this problem. Especially since during the first days of the early release (from October 1st), players on the Steam and Origin platforms could play in the FUT coop mode…
We will keep you informed of any developments on this subject, hoping that a solution will be found quickly.
So much for a first explanation of the crossplay bug on PC between Origin and Steam players on FIFA 21. If you are new to the world of FIFA 21, do not hesitate to consult all of our FUT guides.
