It's official, the FUT 21 Black Friday promo will be launching on Friday November 27, but what can we expect from the FIFA 21 promo?
The Black Friday promo has been included as a promo within FIFA Ultimate Team since FIFA 15, and it's launching again for FIFA 21, with the promo often featuring a special squad release, Squad Building Challenges (SBCs), Objectives, Black Friday pack offers and more to celebrate the famous Black Friday, with some content also released to celebrate Cyber Monday too.
EA SPORTS have themselves confirmed that the FUT 21 Black Friday promo will be launching tomorrow (Friday) November 27, with the new Black Friday loading screen being unveiled when players now try to log into the Ultimate Team game mode on FIFA 21.
