FIFA 16 free trial now available for Xbox One owners with EA Access

Xbox One owners that are members of the EA Access subscription service can now download and play a free 10 hour trial version of the pro soccer game FIFA 16 several days before the full game is released on September 22.

Publisher Electronic Arts says:

"FIFA 16 introduces FUT Draft, a brand new way to play FIFA Ultimate Team. This new mode will test your team building skills as you pick the best fit for each position from a five-player draw. Draft a squad and challenge opponents in a series of up to four matches to win big rewards for your club. Stop your opponent with confidence. Move with greater freedom as a defender. Rely on your team to defend as a unit, and your back line to track menacing runs to create balance between attacking and defending."FIFA 16 gives you a balanced, authentic, and exciting football experience that lets you play your way. All of your progress, stats, and unlocked items from the FIFA 16 trial carry over when you buy the retail or digital version, so you can pick up right where you left off. Plus, as an EA Access member, you'll save 10% on all EA digital purchases on Xbox One, including full-game purchases, FUT packs, and more."

EA Access also allows Xbox One owners to play a growing number of full Electronic Arts games for as much as they want on the Xbox One for the price of $4.99 a month or $29.99 for a year.

  • I do get the feeling that they want us to pay for demos...
  • 10hr trial,thats awesome
  • ?.... I've been playing since last week. And I don't have EA Access. Wait, free trial vs demo?
  • The demo only lets you play a game and do a few things in Ultimate Team. The free trial gives you 10 Hrs with the full game, as if you bought it. Nothing is locked and inaccessible like the demo. Try before you buy and have a play with every part of the game. The demo doesn't show you everything you can do in the game.
  • Great thanks
  • Who's that rather effeminate-looking guy next to Messi?
  • That's Alex Morgan, from the US women's national soccer team. She's also a gold medalist of the 2012 London Olympics, was 2012 US Soccer athlete of the year and a finalist for FIFA World Player of the Year.
  • You can play women's team matches now? That's great.
    (I stopped playing FIFA after FIFA 2003 and I don't follow anything on football anymore)
    Thanks for the info! :)
  • Hey is anyone having a problem logging into ultimate team for the first time??When you create your team name every name I select it says that it's an inappropriate word and won't let me use it to make my team. I literally tried to just put in FIFA FC and it still said it was inappropriate I think its bugged or something anyone else having this problem??
