Updated September 27, 2019: FIFA 20 is now available to everyone on Xbox One and PC, even those who purchased the $60 version.

The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here. FIFA 20 launches this Friday, but if you purchased the Champions or Ultimate editions of the game, you can play it right now. FIFA always ends up becoming the best-selling game around the world every year, and it even beats titles like Call of Duty because of higher demand outside the United States.

The Champions and Ultimate editions start at $80, but if you're an EA Access member, you're entitled to a 10 percent discount.

FIFA 20 also look amazing on Xbox One X because it uses the Frostbite engine that powers games like Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront, and runs at 4K resolution on the system. It's a sight to behold if you have Microsoft's upgraded console.

In Windows Central's review, Richard Devine wrote, "Mild rant aside, there's little reason to dwell on the pay-to-win microtransactions, because it isn't new and it's so incredibly popular and lucrative it's here to stay. On a more positive note, FIFA Ultimate Team alone has more than enough content to keep you playing every day until FIFA 21."
