EA Ignores Nintendo Fans Yet Again As FIFA 21 David Beckham Freebie Skips Switch

In frustratingly familiar news, EA has once again shown a depressing lack of commitment to its audience on Switch as the console misses out on a popular new FIFA 21 treat.

The company has unveiled that football legend David Beckham will be making a surprise appearance in the game’s FIFA Ultimate Team mode; fans who play the game by 15th January 2021 will be treated to “an untradeable, one-of-a-kind David Beckham Item” to add to their squad for free.

It’s a nice touch for footie fans looking to boost their squad, but as you’ve probably guessed by now, the offer doesn’t apply to Switch. All other major consoles are good to go, but Nintendo fans – who are already having to deal with watered-down rehashes of games gone by – will miss out. Thanks to our very own football legend, Chris Scullion (well, reviews legend, at least) for spotting the news.

Here's what you could have won... If you played on a console EA can be bothered with.

No official reasoning for the skip has been provided, although we wouldn’t count on any truly legitimate reason being offered for anyone upset at missing out.

Oh dear.
