How to download FIFA demos

You’ve heard that a new chapter of FIFA, Electronic Arts’ official football simulation is out, and you’ve finally made up your mind to give it a try. You have therefore tried to understand if there is a way to test the game for free before buying it – as you are still undecided about it – and you have discovered the existence of a free demo. However, if you are here now and are reading this tutorial, it seems obvious to me that you have not been able to figure out how to download it. That’s the way it is, am I right? Then I am happy to inform you that you have come to the right place!

In fact, in today’s guide, I will explain to you in detail how to download the FIFA demo. In case you were wondering, I will show you the steps to take both for the computer version and for the PlayStation 4 edition of the EA title. I will also not fail to provide you with some interesting details about what can be done within the free trial version of the game. Obviously, I will also show you all the preliminary steps to take, in case you do not yet have all the accounts and tools necessary to access the demo.

Courage: why are you still standing there motionless in front of the screen? Do you want to start playing the latest version of FIFA? In my opinion yes, so I will not dwell further in small talk: all you have to do is take five minutes of free time and follow the quick instructions below. That said, there is nothing left for me to do, except wish you good reading and have fun!


Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to download the FIFA demo, I think you might be interested in learning more about the possibilities offered by the latter.

Well, usually the FIFA demo allows you to test the mode Kick off, or the “normal game”, with a few selected teams (for example, on FIFA 20 the teams available were Tottenham, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool).

In the demo, this mode is often limited to a maximum duration of 4 minutes and at the beginning and at the end of each game, numerous appear ads which explain the qualities of the game and how to buy the final version. You can play as many games as you want and you can also play it with other people locally, but you will always have to skip these “information pages”.

Every year FIFA introduces Announcements and often allows players to try them for free through the demo. For example, in FIFA 19 it was possible to test the called “adventure” mode Travel, while in FIFA 20 there was a brief glimpse of Time: a mode that allows you to play on the street (FIFA Street style), and UEFA Champions League, with matches that retrace the prestigious football tournament.

Even in the case of the new modes, the player is simply introduced to them and often matches last a few minutes and are full of advertisements which invite you to buy the full game. There are no restrictions on the number of matches, but often the teams and activities available are limited.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide you with detailed information regarding the PC requirements, as each version of FIFA is clearly different. In any case, usually all information of this type is published on the official website of Electronic Arts. So you shouldn’t have to work too hard to figure out if the FIFA demo can work well on your computer.
