FIFA 17: free to play this weekend for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Great news guys! EA has announced that it will be making a free trial for FIFA 17 available for all gamers on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms this weekend. Cool right?

Yes, we’re talking about full access to the game with NO price attached. You will be able to play The Journey, Ultimate Team, Career Mode, etc with some limitations of course.

So what are the conditions and limitations you might ask?

Well, if you are an EA Access subscriber on Xbox One and have used up the ten hours given for the pre-launch trial, I am sorry to inform you that you are ineligible for this. Also, if you are eligible, you will be limited to ten hours on Xbox One. A limited portion of The Journey mode will be available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while unrestricted access will be given to the other modes.

This special will commence on Thursday, November 24 at 10.00 am PT / 1.00 pm ET / 6.00 pm GMT and you will have until 11:59 pm PT / 2:59 am ET / 7:59 am GMT on Sunday, November 27, before it is all gone. A major plus is any progress you make will be carried over to the full game if you do buy it.

So for all you FIFA fans out there: get ready for a weekend of fun.
