Latest News – Top 100 FIFA 21 Players Revealed!

FIFA 21 Demo Release Date
Well we are a year on from the release of the FIFA 20 demo – which dropped on Thursday, 12 September.
And if we follow the pattern of EA releasing the demo two weeks’ before release, the FIFA 21 Demo should land on Friday, 25 September.
The FIFA 21 Demo will be available to download on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
All you need to do his head to the PlayStation, Xbox Live or Origin store – search FIFA 21 and install the demo!
Don’t Miss Out: Amazing external hard drive deals for consoles
We’ve seen some pretty heavy file sizes for demos as of late, but how will the FIFA 21 demo stack up in this regard?
While we don’t have any official size announced as of yet, we can take a look at last year’s offering.
Last year we saw the demo come in at a reasonable 7 GB, but if you want to guarantee you won’t have to delete any games to make room, then going for an external hard drive is a good idea.
With a host of new features for FIFA 21, we’re predicting it will be larger this year, meaning you may have to move some of your files around to make room.
Will it be free?
You may be wondering if the demo will cost you anything?

This isn’t confirmed officially by EA as of yet, but it’s looking likely the demo will be free, as was the case with FIFA 20.
What will be in the Demo?
There is always a big difference between demos and the full game. This largely extends to which game modes players can access, teams, and the more in depth options available.
Graphically speaking, it’s very unlikely there will be any difference between the demo and the main game, but what we could see is shorter match times and limited gameplay options.

EA hasn’t confirmed as of yet what will be in the demo, but we’re sure it’ll give us a great idea of what to expect in the full game.
In FIFA 20’s Demo, the teams available in the Champions League kick-off were:
- Borussia Dortmund
- Paris Saint-Germain
- Real Madrid
- Tottenham Hotspur
With EA adding the Copa Libertadores licences midway through FIFA 20, maybe we could see some South American teams also appear.

The Closed Beta has come to an end for another season.
Betas are specifically released to test the game, and make changes in relation to player’s feedback ahead of release.
Players who have racked up the hours on FIFA on certain game modes had the opportunity to beta test.
Head here to read everything we know about the FIFA 21 Beta.
Expect Volta Football to return in the demo, as we wait to see if EA make any changes to the street mode for FIFA 21.
Volta Football was rolled out on the FIFA 20 last year, and any substantial changes should appear on the trial this year too.
As for Ultimate Team, it’s unlikely we’ll get a look at this during the demo.
For most, the demo will present the first chance to get a flavour of FIFA 20’s gameplay.
More intelligent movement from your teammates is said to be on the way, which we can’t wait to see during the Demo.
Although Next Gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, will not be out when FIFA 21 is released, we may yet see a trial version of the game when the platforms are rolled out before Christmas.

The Next Gen versions do not have their own copy of the game, but there will be some enhancements in playing the game on PS5 or Xbox Series X.
Whether we see a demo on Next Gen remains to be seen, but with the game free for those who have already purchased the PS4 or Xbox One version, a Next Gen demo seems unlikely.
FIFA 21 Demo for Nintendo Switch?
It was announced that FIFA 21 will be getting a version for Nintendo Switch – FIFA 21 Legacy Edition.
There’s no confirmation as of yet, as to whether we’ll see the demo for Switch – however it would seem unlikely if they didn’t.
The Legacy Edition will have updated menus and kits, but won’t have the new gameplay innovations of FIFA 21 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
