What you need to know

  • FIFA 20 is now available for early access for EA Access and Origin Access subscribers.
  • Subscribers can play the game for up to 10 hours as part of the early access period.
  • FIFA 20 is available to preorder now for $50. You can also snag a 12-month EA Access subscription for $30.

FIFA 20 is st for release on September 27, but EA Access subscribers on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as Origin Access subscribers on PC, can access the game a little early. The game is now available to subscribers of both subscription services to play for free, albeit with some caveats. You're limited to up to 10 hours of play time, and any achievements you may unlock while playing through early access will only become available after you've purchased the full game.

For subscribers, this early access period allows you to play the full game. It's not restricted in any way, unlike the free demo that was released for everyone last week.

FIFA 20 brings back the same soccer simulation that fans of the series have grown accustomed to, but with a new VOLTA mode that shakes things up. In VOLTA, you can create a player and embark on a street soccer journey at different locations around the world. Of course, the usual professional play is tagging along here too.

In our review, we found that FIFA 20 is a great expansion on the franchise, stating, "FIFA 20 has an insane amount of content on hand. If you're a regular, you'll be happy, and if you've perhaps given the last game or two a miss, go ahead and jump back in with this year's release. Ultimately, and unsurprisingly, FIFA 20 is still the king."
