Hit the pitch with the FIFA 18 demo, now available on Xbox One and PC

A couple of weeks ahead of the game's official full launch on Xbox One and PC, EA has unleashed the FIFA 18 demo onto the world. The demo download is now up for grabs on the Xbox Store (opens in new tab) and Origin, letting fans of the series dive into a bit of gameplay with several different teams, along with a preview of the next portion of Alex Hunter's story in the campaign.

Throughout the demo, EA says, you'll be able to play as the following teams while trying out Kickoff Mode.

  • Manchester United
  • Manchester City
  • Chelsea FC
  • Real Madrid CF
  • Atlético de Madrid
  • Juventus F.C.
  • FC Bayern Munich
  • Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
  • LA Galaxy
  • Toronto FC
  • Boca Juniors
  • C.D. Guadalajara
  • Vissel Kobe

In addition to the 13 teams, you can play in four stadiums around the world, including Santiago Bernabéu, La Bombonera, StubHub Center, and King Fahd Stadium.

FIFA 18 is set to launch in full across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch on September 29. You can preorder the game now starting at $59.99, with the price going up from there for the usual smattering of deluxe editions. Preorders are also entitled to some bonus extras, like extra Jumbo Premium Gold Packs and more.

  • Why do you guys not treat Windows as a valid gaming platform like you do Xbox? Lots of Windows Central readers are likely to be PC gamers so it seems appropriate to mention that on this article too?
  • It was just an oversight in this case, but I've updated with more PC/Origin mentions.
  • Thanks Dan! ☺
  • They do when it's about Windows 10 (store) games because that's where it applies to Microsoft. Although Windows Central keeps us updated on some major news about Steam or other gaming communities (I follow them too and really appreciate the effort they put into this category) but Windows Central can do fine without it. I follow other websites for gaming news and Windows Central for more Xbox/Microsoft focused news.
  • Steam and Origin games apply to Microsoft too, they're still gaming on their platform, just via another company. They talk about EA Access on the Xbox which is basically the same thing. Sadly Steam is currently far better in almost every way than the Windows Store for games, which is why I use it instead 😞
