FIFA 21 Demo: Release Date, Early Access, Download, Trailer, Legacy Edition, Pre-order & more

A demo gives gamers a chance to try out a new game before the official release and we expect the FIFA 21 demo to follow the same pattern as previous years.

Keep reading for eerything we know about the FIFA 21 demo and more.

FIFA 21 Demo Release date

FIFA 21 is set to release on Friday, October 9 2020.

It’s unclear as to when the Demo could be released, with the new game coming out two weeks later than usual.

If we were to pinpoint a date, this would be Monday, 21 September, which is just under three weeks until full release.


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!

FIFA 21 Trailer

We got to see some footage for FIFA 21 at the reveal, and it certainly got us pumped up for what’s to come. Take a look below for the full video.

Still no news as to when we could get to play the demo of the game, but after EA Play, a very important date was announced!


In FIFA 20’s Demo, the teams available in the Champions League kick-off were:

  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Chelsea
  • Liverpool
  • 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.

With us yet to get a look and the brand new MLS franchises, Inter Miami and Nashville SC, perhaps they could feature in the demo.

Game modes

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

Volta Football was rolled out on the FIFA 20 last year, and any substantial changes should appear on the trial this year too.

HIGH VOLTAGE – Will we see some changes to Volta?

A return to the more arcade feel of FIFA Street would go down a hit with fans. Such a substantial change for FIFA 21 may just come a bit soon.

Career Mode

With serious changes for Career Mode on FIFA 20, don’t expect too much for FIFA 21.

Ultimate Team

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.

Dribbling, defending and finishing were the significant changes for FIFA 20, with far more intelligent tactical play.

Let’s hope that FIFA 21 brings us even closer to the real thing.

Next Gen?

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.

Still, we’re excited to get our hands on the game on the ever-popular console!
