Strangely, there hasn’t been a confirmation from EA Sports directly and as such, we’ve had to check the official Microsoft Store for further details on when the FIFA 18 Demo release date will be arriving on Xbox One.
What we do know is that PS4 players will be able to access the free playtest on September 12, on PS4, reportedly at 1am, BST.
This has now been confirmed as the same time as the Xbox One, as listed on the Microsoft Store.
“You’ll be able to play Kick Off mode with a selection from the world’s biggest clubs and stadiums, and preview of the next chapter in Alex Hunter’s story, The Journey: Hunter Returns ahead of the game’s official launch on 29th September,” Sony confirms.
“Player Personalities give some of the biggest stars in the world the distinct traits of their real-world counterparts, Team Styles let players mimic their favourite clubs’ distinct on-field tactics, and Immersive Atmospheres bring some of the football world’s most famous stadiums to life during matches.
“Plus, enjoy the brand-new broadcast overlays for La Liga and MLS, as well as vibrant and region-specific sights and sounds that make football’s biggest stadiums come to life.”
It was thought that the FIFA 18 demo was set to launch on Xbox One, due to a leak on the console’s official store.
That listing showed the official release date as September 15, so it’s currently unclear if Xbox One players will have to wait longer.
The official teams list has also been confirmed for the FIFA 18 demo and can be found below:
Play as one of these 12 top football clubs in Kick Off mode:
- Manchester United
- Manchester City
- Real Madrid CF
- Atlético de Madrid
- Juventus F.C.
- FC Bayern Munich
- Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
- LA Galaxy
- Toronto FC
- Boca Juniors
- C.D. Guadalajar
- Vissel Kobe
There are also four stadiums currently confirmed as playable in FIFA 18, these include:
- Santiago Bernabéu
- La Bombonera
- StubHub Center
- King Fahd Stadium
As mentioned above, players will also be able to experience the first part of the new Journey Mode, featuring Alex Hunter.
“Preview the next chapter in Hunter’s story in the Demo as he goes global alongside a star-studded supporting cast featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, James Harden, plus new playable characters,” the Sony statement adds.
“The future is bright, and the world is talking about Hunter… but life in football isn’t always fair.”
