Fans will be able to play from FIFA 21 TODAY, with the EA Play early access trial period starting on October 1.
FIFA Ultimate Team players were able to access the new FUT 21 Web App from last night, with EA also releasing the first FUT 21 Team of the Week squad of the new Ultimate Team campaign featuring Luis Suarez, Bruno Fernandes and Wissam Ben Yedder in TOTW 1.
Players should also be able to access to the new FUT 21 Companion App at some stage today, ahead of the game being launched worldwide on October 9, or on October 6 for players who pre-ordered the Champions or Ultimate Edition of the game. But for players with an EA Play subscription, you can access the game from TODAY.
EA Play, which was previously referred to as EA Access/Origin Access, is a monthly paid subscription service that gives players on Xbox, PS4 and PC a number of different perks and discounts, including early access to FIFA 21.

So what time will players with an EA Play subscription be able to access their ten-hour trial of FIFA 21 today? EA Play subscribers will be able to get early access to FIFA 21 from 4pm UK time on October 1, 2020.
If you do decide to use EA Play to get ten-hours early access to FIFA 21, don’t forget that you will still have to purchase an edition of FIFA 21 to play the game after your ten-hour trial has expired.
Also, in regards to the ten-hour trial period, make sure that you manually close the FIFA 21 application when you are finished with your playing session on both Xbox One and PS4, as the game will continue to run in the background and the clock will continue to run on your trial period!
EA Play is a subscription service that costs £3.99 per-month or £19.99 annually for Xbox, PlayStation and PC. There’s also an EA Play Pro subscription, which costs £14.99 per-month or £89.99 annually, but this is only available for PC players.
EA Play will also give FIFA players a 10% discount on EA digital purchases including FIFA 21, FIFA points, and other games and content.
FIFA 21 will be playable on the next-generation edition of gaming consoles, the Playstation 5 and the Xbox One Series X/S. These consoles will be released in November. When you purchase FIFA 21 on Xbox, PS4 or PC, you’ll have access to something called Dual Entitlement, which will enable you to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, at no extra cost.
FIFA 21 will be released in the UK and worldwide on October 9, 2020, but some editions will allow you to play FIFA 21 slightly earlier than this.
If you pre-order the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition or Champions Edition on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC you’ll be able to play from October 6, 2020. The FIFA 21 Standard Edition allows fans to play from the game’s official UK and worldwide release date of October 9, 2020.
