There is always a big difference between demos and the full game with limited game modes, players, and teams available.

The FIFA 22 Demo will give us a selection of clubs to test out the gameplay which is likely to be clubs that have partnership deals with EA Sports.

For FIFA 22 we'd expect the clubs to be:

  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Chelsea
  • Inter Milan
  • Manchester City
  • PSG
  • Real Madrid

Leaks cause EA to cancel beta

FIFA 22 saw the upcoming game's Closed Beta go live yesterday with little warning, but this exciting first look immediately led to a series of leaks.

New details about FIFA 22 including in-game menus, gameplay, commentators, tactical systems, FUT 22 Icons, and more were leaked shortly after the beta was made available.

After images and information about the beta started to come out, EA took swift action and has cancelled the Closed Beta for FIFA 22.

With this early glimpse of the game now gone, players likely won't be able to get their hands on FIFA 22 until the demo or Early Access have arrived.
