FIFA 23 is just around the corner, meaning it won't be long until we're all starting our journey in a brand new game.

Table of Contents

With that in mind, we want to take a look at everything we know about the FIFA 23 Beta, giving fans the chance to get their hands on the new game before anyone else.

Latest - Beta Release Date 'Confirmed'

There has been no official confirmation from EA, but FIFAUTeam is already reporting when the Closed Beta will start.


Mark your calendar, because Thursday, 11 August is the date to look out for, nearly two months before the full game launches.

As always, you will need an invitation from EA to be able to play the Beta, so keep an eye on your emails.


FIFA 23 Beta

The FIFA 23 Beta will offer fans the chance to get early access to the game, initially restricting them to one specific mode before the full game is unlocked.

As has been in previous years, we're expecting the Beta to once again only be available to those fans that have played FIFA for a number of years, with a code arriving via email.

EARLY DAYS - Ultimate Team will be available in the FIFA 23 Beta

There were rumours last year that the FIFA 22 Beta was set to be scrapped, but thankfully those turned out to be false.

Whilst there's no official confirmation that we will see a Beta this year, we're confident that EA Sports will once again give fans the chance to get early access to their brand new release.

Beta Game Modes

Whilst we have no confirmed game modes for the FIFA 23 Beta, we are expecting these to be included:

  • Kick Off
  • VOLTA Football
  • FIFA Ultimate Team
  • Career Mode - both Manager & Player Career
  • Create a Club - Still in development
  • Pro Clubs Drop In
  • Online & Co-op Seasons

Release Date

There is currently no confirmed release date for the FIFA 23 Beta.

Last year, EA announced that FIFA 22 will be released on Friday, 1 October 2021.

Early Access was available from Tuesday, 28 September - with the EA Play Trial going live 10 days before release.

We're anticipating a similar release window this year, with a late September Beta release earmarked.



There is a big difference between the FIFA 23 Beta and the FIFA 23 Demo.

EA has not yet confirmed whether we'll be getting a FIFA 23 Demo this year.

There was no free FIFA 22 Demo to download on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X, or PC.

GONE ARE THE DAYS - We don't expect FIFA Demos to return any time soon

Instead, EA provided fans with 10-hour and 20-hour trials, courtesy of their EA Play app.

We expect the same to be the case for FIFA 23, which means you will be able to access the full game for both time limits, but you will also need to pay a small fee to enjoy it.
