How to download FIFA demos: You have heard that a new chapter of FIFA, the official football simulation of Electronic Arts, has been released, and you have finally decided to try it. You then tried to figure out if there is a way to test the game for free before buying it – as you are still undecided about it – and discovered the existence of a free demo. However, if you are here now and reading this tutorial, it seems clear to me that you couldn’t figure out how to download it. Is this the case, am I right? Then I am happy to inform you that you have come to the right place!

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

Courage: why are you still standing motionless in front of the screen? Want to start playing the latest version of FIFA? In my opinion, yes, I will not go further into chatter: all you have to do is take five minutes of free time and follow the quick instructions below. Having said that, there is nothing else for me to do, except to wish you happy reading and have fun!

Preliminary information

FIFA kick off

Before going into detail on the procedure on how to download the FIFA demo , I think you may be interested to know more about the possibilities offered by the latter.

Well, usually the FIFA demo allows you to test the kick-off mode , or the “normal game”, with a few selected teams (for example, on FIFA 20 the available teams 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 end of each game numerous advertisements appear explaining 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 do it with other people locally, but you will always have to skip these “information pages”.

FIFA introduces new features every year and often allows players to try them for free through the demo. For example, in FIFA 19 it was possible to test the “adventure” mode called Il Viaggio , while in FIFA 20 a short taste of Volta was available : a mode that allows you to play street games (FIFA Street style), and UEFA Champions League , with the games that retrace the prestigious football tournament.

FIFA Football Time

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

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