Football fans are starting to turn their attention towards EA Sports FC early access. The next era of EA's football series is on the horizon and many are looking for the earliest possible opportunity to place the game.
Throughout the FIFA cycle, players had the chance to play before the official release date and for EA Sports FC 24, it appears EA Sports plans to provide fans with periods of early access so they can earn a head start in popular modes such as Ultimate Team.
How does EA Sports FC early access work?
EA Sports FC early access will work the same as previous FIFA releases. Those that choose to pre-order the Ultimate Edition of the game will earn an opportunity to play the game ahead of general release.
Subscribing to EA Play is a surefire way of kicking off your EA Sports FC journey ahead of time. What's even better is that it's an incredibly straightforward process.
EA Play membership costs £3.99 per month or £19.99 for the whole year.
Once you're subscribed, all you need to do is wait for the pre-loading window to open and as soon as early access launches, you can jump straight onto the pitch. It's worth noting that you'll probably have ten hours of game time during the period of early access so use it wisely.
Pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition
Usually, the Ultimate Edition of EA's football offering features early access. For EA Sports FC, those that purchase the Ultimate Edition will get seven days of early access which is a huge amount of time to start assembling your Ultimate Team players.
