FIFA 21 Update #12 Live on Console, Patch Notes Revealed

Several days ago, EA released a new FIFA 21 update on PC. Today, that update released on console, or in other words, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Dubbed Title Update #12, the update doesn't make any gameplay changes or adjustments, but rather makes tweaks and improvements to Career Mode, Ultimate Team, and VOLTA. Meanwhile, in addition to this, five new Starheads have been added and an audio issue plaguing the PS5 version of the game has also been patched.

At the moment of publishing, it's unclear if the update requires a console-sided downloaded. If it does, it should be a fairly quick download as the file size shouldn't be too big considering how light the patch notes are compared to previous updates.

Below, you can check out the update's full patch notes, courtesy of EA:
