FIFA 21 Ones to Watch card designs were revealed in bonuses for players who pre-order the game.

OTW cards are special as they are dynamic cards for a select bunch that have switched clubs. Dynamic means that their ratings will change with performance upgrade the player receives later on. Performance upgrades include Team of the Week and Man of the Match items subsequently released.

In the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, there are two versions. One for players who pre-order before August 14, and for those who pre-order after August 14. The only difference is the gifted untradeable OTW card.

FIFA 21 OTW cards will have a darker, more menacing tone compared to FIFA 20. Instead of a bright lines that resemble stars, FIFA 21 OTW cards have yellow and red lines that resemble lightning. The mixture between dark and light colors also resemble FIFA 20 Ultimate Scream cards.

Chelsea will benefit from OTW cards as Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner are two major transfers so far. Expect both players to be sought after in FIFA 21.

If FIFA 21 OTW is going to be like FIFA 20, it could be the start of something special. FIFA 20 OTW brought out the godly power of Ben Yedder. It also gave players special items for Frankie De Jong, Nicolas Pepe and Lucas Hernandez.

Players who do pre-order the Ultimate Edition will also receive:

  • Max: 24 Rare Gold packs
  • Cover star loan (five matches)
  • Career mode - Homegrown talent
  • FUT Ambassador one of three player pick (3 matches)
  • Special edition FUT kits and stadiums

There has been a fair amount of disappointment with FIFA 20 in general, and players are hoping EA will finally get it right this year.
