FIFA 23 is set to launch on September 30, 2022, so you only have to wait a few days to start playing. But if that is still too long for you to wait, then we have another solution.
EA offers several different ways to start playing the popular soccer game before the official release.
You can either subscribe to EA Play (requires a monthly fee) to get up to 10 hours of gameplay before launch, or pre-order FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition for unlimited use. We’ll walk you through both options below.
What you will need:
- Payment card
The short version
- Go to the EA Play website and click Join Now
- Select your preferred platform
- Choose an EA Play subscription
- Enter payment details if required
- Preload FIFA 23 and take advantage of your 10-hour allotment
- Alternatively: pre-order FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition
Go to the EA Play website and click Join Now
If you wish to sign up for the EA Play subscription then you can sign up by going to the official website via this connection. Then click “Join Now” in the red square.
Select your preferred platform
EA will then give you a choice of 4 platforms: the EA Play app, Steam, PlayStation or Xbox. You can only use one platform with your EA Play subscription, so choose carefully.
Choose an EA Play subscription
Now it’s time to choose which EA Play subscription appeals to you. Right now you may be eligible for a 1 month discount offer where you pay just 79p. Alternatively, you can pay £19.99 for a 12-month subscription.
Enter payment details if required
Depending on whether your chosen platform already has your payment details, you may be asked to enter your credit card details. Follow all the necessary steps if you are sure you want to register.
Preload FIFA 23
Once your EA Play subscription is confirmed, you’ll now be able to preload FIFA 23. You’ll only have 10 hours to play before the official launch, so make sure you use your time wisely.
Alternatively: pre-order FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition
If you don’t want to sign up for EA Play, then there is another option. If you pre-order FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition, you’ll be able to start playing right now before launch, with no time limit on how long you play. This is a very expensive option as it can cost around £89.99, but you get other benefits like 4600 FIFA Points, Kylian Mbappé Loan Item and more.
If you sign up through EA Play, you’ll be able to play every FIFA 23 mode for 10 hours. Once the time is up, you’ll be able to continue your progress once the game launches on September 30, 2022.
