We have fully entered the opening week of FIFA 23, the new annual football installment of EA Sports for PC and consoles that many fans of the world of sports are looking forward to. The official release date of the title is September 30, 2022but there is an early access that allows you to play it in advance.
Early access starts Tuesday the 27thIn order to take advantage of this opportunity, we offer you everything you need to know to access this early access and find out first-hand from when you can get your hands on FIFA 23, which has this function in PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S; not on Nintendo Switch, where the Legacy Edition is excluded.
How to get early access
The main method to access this opportunity is have contracted EA Play, Electronic Arts’ subscription service. We must be subscribed to the platform we want to play (Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users already have this functionality) and we will be allowed to play for 10 hours for free, transferring the progress to the full game if we end up buying it.
If we are not subscribed to the service we can take advantage of the One month promotion for less than one euro happening this month on PlayStation and Xbox, or pay full price on PC.
Early access date and time
Although FIFA 23 goes on sale on September 30, we will be able to play the full title in all regions from September 27 thanks to early access. This includes both EA Play and EA Play Pro as well as the Ultimate Edition of the game; buyers of the standard edition will have to wait until 30.
- EA Play (Limited Early Access): Tuesday, September 27
- EA Play Pro (Full Early Access): Tuesday, September 27
- Ultimate Edition: Tuesday, September 27
- Standard Edition: Friday, September 30
As for the time, it is estimated that early access will start from 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon in the Spanish peninsular time, although once the period approaches we will know in greater detail when the functionality is activated.
This early access is very important for those who are serious about Ultimate Team, the star modality of the soccer saga that allows you to create a dream team by obtaining different player cards and competing against other users. However, for a few days it has been possible to manage the content through the Web App and the Companion App, applications that do not allow games to be played but can be used to shape the squad.
