The time is almost upon us, FIFA 22 will release soon for early access via the Ultimate Edition.

Without the Ultimate Edition, you will have to wait until Friday, 1 October to get your hands on the full game at launch.

If you weren't already playing the game, then the EA Play Trial is still live and offers 10 hours of gameplay, but you will need an EA Play membership to do so.

Pre Orders
