Cannot play against friends on Fifa 21 PS5

 

Hi, whenever I attempt to play friendlies against my friends on fifa 21, it keeps on coming up with add friends to be able to play. However I do have friends added and it only happens on ffia and not any other game. Can anyone help?

@damianfr1208 I found the problem. Make sure both you and your friend are playing on the same version. Do that by going to ffifa 21 - 3 dots - then you can choose ps4 or ps5 version. Enjoy

Hi @JettersAFC,

Sorry to hear it. Are you launching the PS4 version or the PS5 version of the game?

Hi @JettersAFC,

Thanks, are your friends on the PlayStation 5 as well or are they playing on PlayStation 4?

Hi @JettersAFC,

That's really odd, what happens if you try to add them from that screen?

It says get some multiplayer games. You need to install a game that supports multiplayer, however fifa does?

Hi @JettersAFC,

Strange, and this is happening inside FIFA? Can you get us a screenshot please?

I can't really screenshot right now, however it only happens in fifa. I press new friendly season and it says the following:

Add friends to be able to play against them and track your season history in online friendlies.
