When is the FIFA 19 demo released?

All the information we've got so far ahead of FIFA 19's release date on September 28

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

When will the game be released? 

FIFA 19 will be available in the UK on September 28. Huzzah! 

When is the demo out?

Unfortunately, EA Sports haven't actually released such information into the wild yet – but history suggests that we'll be able to play it just over two weeks before release. 

Last year, FIFA 18's demo came out 17 days before release; FIFA 17 was 16 days prior; and FIFA 16 was 15 days. So judging by that, we can expect to be downloading FIFA 19's demo any time from September 11-13. Exciting.

Where can I pre-order the game? 

You keen beans. You can get the standard versions of FIFA 19 for PS4 from Amazon (£49.99); or on Xbox One (same price).  

Alternatively, grab it from EA's official site with three different options to purchase: Standard, Champions and Ultimate. 

With the Standard edition you'll get up to five Jumbo Premium Gold FUT packs, plus Cristiano Ronaldo on loan for seven FUT matches and special edition kits. 

Champions will give you three days' worth of early access, up to 20 Jumbo Premium Gold FUT packs, one Champions League Gold Player Pick (one of five 80 to 83-rated gold players from qualified teams), Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar on loan players for seven FUT matches and those special edition kits.

FIFA 19's Ultimate edition gives you all of the above but up to 40 Jumbo Premium Gold FUT packs.
