The FIFA 23 news is coming at us thick and fast, with the new game just a few weeks away.
So, find out everything you need to know about the FIFA 23 Demo right here.
Latest - Change comes to EA Play
Usually, the EA Play 10-hour Trial grants Early Access to the full game around nine days before worldwide release, albeit for a limited time.
This means that EA Play subscribers can access FIFA before Ultimate Edition pre-orders, however, that has changed this year.
Now, EA Play members will still get the 10-hour trial, but it will be released at the same time as Early Access for Ultimate Edition pre-order customers, on Tuesday, 27 September.
Will there be a FIFA 23 Demo?
EA has not yet confirmed whether we'll be getting a FIFA 23 Demo this year, but given that no Demo came for FIFA 22 or FIFA 21, it looks highly unlikely.
Instead, EA provides fans with a 10-hour trial, as long as they subscribe to EA Play.
We expect the same to be the case for FIFA 23, which means you will be able to access the full game for a limited time, but you will also need to pay a small fee to enjoy it.
As confirmed during the reveal trailer, FIFA 23 will be fully released on Friday, 30 September.
The 10-hour EA Play trial gives players a limited number of hours of gaming too and will begin at the same time as pre-order early access.
With all that in mind, here are some of the key (predicted) dates for your diaries.
Predicted FIFA 23 Key Dates:
- Thursday, 11 August - FIFA 23 Closed Beta
- Wednesday, 21 September - FUT Web App Launch
- Thursday, 22 September - FUT Mobile Companion App Launch
- Tuesday, 27 September - Early Access (Ultimate Edition Pre-Orders) & EA Play Trial (10 hours) - CONFIRMED
- Friday, 30 September - Full Launch - CONFIRMED
- Monday, 21 November - 2022 World Cup kick-off
As stated previously, the EA Play Trial will grant you access to the full version of FIFA 23.
This means you will be able to kickstart your Ultimate Team early by trading and building a squad that is above the average level by the time the game is officially released.
You'll also be granted access to Career Mode, VOLTA Football and basic Quickplay modes such as Kick-Off.
