EA Sports has tapped 21-year old PSG French superstar Kylian Mbappé as the cover athlete of FIFA 21. He will be featured on the standard cover of the upcoming title as well as the Champions and Ultimate Editions of the game. Mbappe is the second PSG player to grace the cover of a FIFA title, as Neymar was included alongside Cristiano Ronaldo on the Champions and Ultimate editions of FIFA 19.

Earning a cover credit this early in his career reflects how much the footballer has achieved at such a young age. Mbappé has ascended into a global icon following his senior debut for France in 2017. He became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup during the 2018 FIFA World Cup and became the second teenager behind Pelé to score in a World Cup final. He finished as the joint second-highest goalscorer as France won the tournament, and as such, received the Best Young Player and French Player of the Year awards for his performances.

FIFA is one of the biggest gaming franchises in the medium, and as Mbappé continues his march towards all-time greatness, FIFA 21 will serve as the start of the next chapter in the footballer’s illustrious career.

In other gaming news, EA recently released the first gameplay trailer for UFC 4.
