FIFA 22 is just weeks away from its official launch next October 1. However, from EA Sports they offer some alternatives to access the full version ahead of time. One of them happens to be a member of EA Play, the subscription service of the North American company.

When will FIFA 22 be playable with EA Play? Dates and duration
EA Play is available on all major systems: PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. If you are registered, you will be able to access FIFA 22 from September 22. You’ll do this through a 10-hour trial, the usual extended demo of Electronic Arts releases. However, this is far from being a typical demo. With it you have access to the final game without content restriction.
Once you run out of hours (it will indicate the remaining hours each time you log in), you will have to wait for the game to launch. Those who pre-order the Ultimate Edition can start playing September 27, 4 days before its official date: October 1.
On the other hand, the PC community has another added possibility. Through the EA Play Pro mode, somewhat more expensive than the basic subscription, you will have full access to the game from September 22, the same day as the early access for 10 hours. The key is that these users have no time limit.
What time will FIFA 22 be playable on EA Play?
The FIFA 22 10-hour trial with EA Play will start at 19:00 CEST on September 22. It has not been revealed if the game can be downloaded beforehand in order to play from the start of the test. If we take other Electronic Arts projects as an example, logic tells us that there will not be. Therefore, we will have to be vigilant that at that time it is activated in the main digital bazaars on console and PC.
How much is EA Play worth?
Signing up for the basic version requires a one-time payment of 24.99 euros per year or 3.99 euros a month. Xbox users subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate also receive all the bonuses for being a member of EA Play at no additional cost.
The Pro mode EA Play is exclusive to Origin, Electronic Arts’ PC client. By 14.99 euros per month or 99.99 euros per year, you have access to the entire company catalog. This includes all future releases, so you can play FIFA 22, Battlefield 2042, and more as long as you’re signed up.
