Guess Which Video Game Now Features a Diplo Avatar?

Diplo, a doer of many things in both waking life and virtual reality, has now done yet another thing with the launch of his avatar within FIFA 21’s Volta Football series.

Within the game as a playable character, Diplo is among a cast of “Groundbreaker” players including soccer phenom Kylian Mbappé, Olympic gold medalist in boxing Anthony Joshua, and actor and former professional soccer player Eric Cantona.

This isn’t Diplo’s first time on the field with FIFA, as he produced the 2018 World Cup’s official (and very Major Lazer-sounding) anthem “Live It Up” by reggaeton star Nicky Jam with a feature from Will Smith. For the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Dip was one of the models Nike used to show off its uniform for Team U.S.A., with the producer also delivering a pretty hyphy mix for the BBC in honor of that year’s games.

The soundtrack to Volta Football is stacked with electronic artists including Alison Wonderland and Quix, Big Gigantic and Felly, Flume Feat. Toro Y Moi, Jimmy Edgar Feat. Danny Brown, Calvin Harris’ Love Regenerator project, Underworld, Icona Pop, Idris Elba and more.
