FIFA 21 EA Play release date, start time news for PS4 and Xbox early access trial

With the FIFA 21 Web App scheduled to launch today, it won’t be long before EA Play subscribers get their first taste of FIFA 21 action.

Previously named EA Access, the EA Play subscription service provides a limited time version of the game to fans before it’s official release date.

EA Play cost £3.99 a month on PS4 and Xbox One but you also have the option to pay £19.99 to access EA Play for the entire year.

Not only will you get early access to FIFA 21, but EA Play subscribers can download and play dozens of other games through the Vault.

This includes Rocket Arena, NFS Heat, Battlefield V, Anthem, Burnout Paradise Remastered and Fe.


Developers EA Sports has confirmed that the EA Play Early Access period for FIFA 21 will be starting on October 1, 2020.

It should be noted that while gamers will be able to experience much of what the core game has to offer, it does come with limitations.

These special EA Play trials usually only last around ten hours, so don’t expect to be able to make a huge amount of progress before the full launch.

The good news is that whatever you do achieve will carry over, so you can pick up where you left off if you decide to purchase the game.

THE FIFA 21 early release date has been set for Thursday, October 1 and will be followed by a staggered launch on October 6 and October 9.

When it comes to timing, EA Sports has not revealed when the game will be available to download via EA Play servers.

Based based on last year’s launch, we would expect the FIFA 21 EA Play trial to start before 8pm UK time.

And there is a countdown being shared online that suggests the FIFA 21 early release date has been set for 4pm BST, on Thursday.

As ever, it will be worth checking the various EA social media feeds to get the latest information on the big FIFA trial launch.

Having an EA Play subscription isn’t the only way to get started early in your FIFA 21 adventure.

While there is no FIFA demo being released this year on PS4 and Xbox One, there are other ways to get involved.

Pre-ordering the FIFA 21 Champions Edition provides you with a number of bonuses, including 3 days Early Access.

This means you can start playing the game from October 6, or you can log in online and start using the FIFA 21 Web App, which is rolling out now.

For those who haven’t used it before, the FIFA Web App makes it possible to manage your FUT team on the go.

The Web App lets you configure your squad and manage who to buy and usually provides extra ways to unlock packs.

For everyone else, FIFA 21 will be launching on Friday, October 9, across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
