FIFA 15 demo now on Xbox One, here's our first gameplay footage

Heads up! The FIFA 15 downloadable demo is now available for Xbox One. If you have the Xbox One SmartGlass app on your Windows Phone device, fire it up, search for the demo and start the download. It will automatically install on your Xbox One if it is on or is set to instant on. I've already set it up on my machine. Watch my first few minutes with the game.

I already have FIFA 14, so this new version feels very familiar. Controls seem to be the same from my first few minutes playing with it. There are minor differences I've noticed in the presentation. Player models appear to look smoother. I also notice that the grass seem to show when it's stepped on. I also feel like it's easier to target the ball during free kicks.

I'm very excited about this game and I'll be playing it frequently until the full version comes out on September 23rd in North America and September 25 in Europe.

Go play the free downloadable demo for FIFA 15 on your Xbox One and let us know if you plan on getting getting the full version later this month.

  • Wow!!!!
  • Totally WoW!!! All EPL stadiums are rendered and realistic. All new faces, all EPL players rescanned with better fidelity. Just for visuals alone I'd get it :)
  • Not much different from 14 so far. Let's just wait and see the final product.
  • Well it isn't just visual changes. ;)
  • vast improvement..game pace is faster..dribble/close control is tighter...no more struggling just to control the ball with great dribblers...you can actually turn when running with turbo now...minor improvements that make a major difference...

  • xbox or ps?
  • For FIFA, Xbox. Most games Xbox. Only exclusives and exclusive content, ps4.
  • No option but to "pin" on my smartglass app. Maybe not available in Canada yet. Hmm
  • You can always just do it on your console. :)
  • Nevermind. Figured out I can only install it using the beta Smartglass app.
  • Thanks for the tip... Will download tonight. My tag is operator36 if anyone wants to play FIFA 2014 on 360 send me a message
  • Played it. SO HARD to score a regular goal! I have to get used to it. I had to go to penalties, and I won. I love the new penalty layout! :D
  • Please tell me that players won't run miles to get the ball for a throw-in.

  • Every year EA takes our money just for the actual squads and small restyling.
  • Can anyone tell me how big the the download is? It doesn't seem to tell you on the smart glass app.
  • Judging from the video, player movement does seem a tad bit more natural e.g. setting up for corner and player going up to gk after a save. Players definitely seem to turn faster with the ball.
  • EA clearly don't care about us United fans of they force you to choose between Liverpool and city
  • Maybe cuz it's just a demo and cuz United just sucks...
  • Or maybe it's because they were the top two teams last year in the Premiership.
  • I'd thought MCI won
  • Hey mark... You need to charge your phone. Battery low. :P
