EA Sports confirm no demo will be made available ahead of FIFA 21 release

EA Sports have confirmed there will not be a demo of FIFA 21 ahead of the game’s release next month.

The video game company insisted they were dedicated to providing users with the best full version, rather than trying to produce a reduced package ahead of its release.

However, it was revealed that the game, which is due to be available from October 9, can be accessed by EA Play members from as early as October 1.

In a statement posted to Twitter, EA Sports said: "We aren't releasing a demo for FIFA 21.

"Instead we've made the decision to focus our development team's time on delivering the best full game experience for current & next-gen consoles.

"We look forward to EA PLAY members jumping in 10 days from now and launching the game Oct 9."
