Normally there’s always a free FIFA demo before each new game is released but not this year…
A demo of the latest FIFA game is all part of the series’ pre-release tradition but just as real-world football has been forced to change by the pandemic, so too have video games.
EA has confirmed that there’ll be no FIFA 21 demo, so that the developers can focus on getting the game finished on time – which seems fair enough.
But while it’s not a demo exactly you can at least get to play the full game early via EA Play on 1 October for 10 hours, several days before the official launch on 9 October.
If you don’t have access to EA Play then you can also get three days of early access with FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, although obviously that’s not really much of a demo because you have to pay for it.
Whenever you actually start playing it FIFA 21 will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. There’s also a Nintendo Switch version on 9 October but that’s just the same game as last year with a roster update.
Whether the FIFA demo will return next year remains to be seen, as the whole concept has fallen out of favour in recent years, as publishers realised they often made people less likely to buy the full game.
More recently, even betas have come under question, with the one for Marvel’s Avengers seeming to put more people off the game than anything else.
