AJ is a playable character in FIFA 21

FIFA 21 drops on October 9 and this year's game will feature a number of exciting changes. 

Improvements have been made to a number of areas including Ultimate Team and Career Mode, offering fans a variety of ways to play. 

Another of EA's more popular modes is VOLTA, which allows gamers to take the ball off the pitch and onto the street. 

It was introduced last year and has apparently been improved again in FIFA 21. 

EA has announced new VOLTA clothing collections to use in the game, new venues, new squads that showcase a 'unique style of street football' and even 'groundbreakers'. 

So, what are 'groundbreakers' you ask? Well, according to EA's website, they're real-life celebrities and football legends who will appear in the VOLTA game mode. 

Joshua is in FIFA 21

One of those featured in the trailer is none other than Anthony Joshua. 

Yep, you can actually bang in the goals with a heavyweight boxing champion! 

Check out the trailer, which also features famous DJ Diplo, as well as Kaka and a number of other current stars, below:

Well, we can't wait to start pulling off the skills with AJ. It sounds like he'll be pretty impressive in the game too. 

"Olympic gold medallist and two-time unified heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua makes his way from the boxing ring to the small-sided game," his bio on the FIFA 21 website reads.

"Watford-born and bred, AJ isn't new to football. He'll be bringing all his experience with him into VOLTA."

Not only is Joshua in the game, but he'll be kitted out in fresh threads designed by none other than Arsenal's Hector Bellerin. Bet you weren't expecting EA to announce that, were you?
