EA Sports have decided to break from years of tradition by not releasing a demo for its latest FIFA title.
Many FIFA fans had previously speculated on social media that the FIFA 21 demo would be made available on Tuesday, 22 September at 3pm on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The game publication, however, announced this via its official Twitter account, saying: “We’ve made the decision to focus our development team’s time on delivering the best full game experience for current and next-gen consoles.
“We look forward to EA PLAY members jumping in 10 days from now and launching the game Oct 9.”
This news will come as a disappointment for casual players, who usually like to sample the latest addition to this historic gaming series before making the decision to pre-order or buy.
They will instead be made to wait just a bit longer to experience the title, which this year features PSG star Kylian Mbappe on the cover.
EA Play subscribers will, however, still be able to access the 10-hour trial starting on October 1.
This will be the real game that the subscribers will get to try out and the progress you make will subsequently carry over.
While those who have already pre-ordered the FIFA Ultimate Edition or Champions Edition on PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC will be able to play from October 6.
The first time most gamers will be able to play the new FIFA, however, will be when the standard edition is released to the public worldwide on October 9.
This will be for the current generation consoles: PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
It is not yet clear, however, when FIFA 21 will launch on the next generation PS5 and Xbox Series X.
