ORIGINAL: FIFA 21 servers have come under strain tonight as EA launched its latest event for its popular Ultimate Team mode. As confirmed earlier today by EA Sports, a new range of cards are now available to unlock in FUT 21. Rulebreakers makes it possible to play with familiar lineups that boast remixed stats, although there is only a few available right now.
More Rule Breakers will be released throughout 2020, with the squad now live in FIFA 21 across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The launch of the new Rule Breakers might be why some gamers are having trouble accessing core game services tonight.
A surge in interest can always cause server strain, leaving some gamers unable to get online.
And with FUT a multiplayer service, there could be further disruption tonight for gamers.
More about the new Rule Breakers can be found below: “Some rules are meant to be broken. Meet a group of players who defy the status quo by tearing up the pitch with unique permanent upgrades. Introducing The FUT 21 Rulebreakers.
“Rulebreakers players will be available in FUT over the course of the campaign, with the first group released on Friday 23rd October.
“Rulebreakers leave behind their previous styles of play and transform into different kinds of stars with game-changing stat updates.
“Now you can play in new ways with some of your old favourites, creating variety in squad building like never before.
“Keep your eyes peeled for additional FUT 21 Rulebreakers to be made available through upcoming Squad Building Challenges and Objectives.
“In addition, for the first time, by completing select Objectives during a limited-time Live FUT Friendly event, you’ll be able to obtain an exclusive Rulebreakers player reward.
“Finally, Halloween and Day of the Dead also return to FUT with Squad Building Challenges and Objectives featuring themed kits, stadium items, and pack rewards beginning Thursday 29th October.”
