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.

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

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.

Release Date

As confirmed during the reveal trailer, FIFA 23 will be fully released on Friday, 30 September.

Some will be able to access the game sooner than that via a possible Beta or Demo, then the Web App and Early Access.

You'll also be granted access to Career Mode, VOLTA Football and basic Quickplay modes such as Kick-Off.
