How to play FIFA 18 Early
Playing FIFA 18 Early can give you a huge advantage.
It’s very easy to play FIFA 18 early, it will however come at an extra cost. If you can’t afford the extra cost you will have to wait until the 29th unfortunately. Playing FIFA 18 Early allows you to get a head start on other FUT players. You’ll be able to play matches with coin boosts activated while others are stuck on the web app.
EA Access & Origin Access
Unfortunately at the time of writing this article Playstation doesn’t have either of the above. EA Access is for Xbox One and Origin Access is for PC. When buying either membership (£3.99 a month), you’ll be able to play a 10 hour trial of FIFA 18 from the 21st of September onward.
As a Playstation player that wants to play FIFA 18 early, I always buy Origin Access on my PC and use DS4 so that I can play with my Playstation controller. If your PC is average or better, you’ll most likely be able to do the same. It’s definitely worth it so that you can get a feel for the gameplay.
Pre-ordering the Ronaldo & Icon Edition gets you 3 days early access.
Here’s a FIFA 18 buying guide which will help you decide which edition to buy. It’s clear EA know what the fan base want when it comes to pre-order bonuses. The advantage that you can gain with 3 days full access is huge and is a massive selling point for players which can invest many hours into the game during those 3 days.
I have to admit, I bought the Icon edition because of the 3 day early access. As us Playstation players don’t get a 10 hour trial from EA/Origin Access, the people that pre-order FIFA 18 Ronaldo or Icon edition will be the first to play FIFA 18 on Playstation.
