How To Play FIFA 22 Before Release Date

FIFA 22 will be out later this year and fans, as per usual, will be given the opportunity to play the game early.

For the last few years, gamers have been blessed with EA Play - which gifts players ten hours of gameplay on the upcoming FIFA game before its release date.

And this year will be no different as EA Sports are, once again, giving gamers the chance to take to the pitch on FIFA 22 in the build-up to its launch.

More details around FIFA 22 will be shared next month at EA Play Live on July 22 - and we will be bringing you all the updates as we get them.

Until then, though, let's take a look at how gamers can play FIFA 22 prior to its release date with the possible early access methods.


How can I play FIFA 22 early?

Players can get their hands on the full game through EA Play's Early Access programme.

It gives players the chance to download and play ten hours of FIFA 22 gameplay one week in advance.

Last year, for FIFA 21, early access to the game was granted on October 1, 2020.


According to reports, EA Play and Origin Access members are eligible to download and play FIFA 22 on September 30, 2021.

How to play FIFA 22 early

To play FIFA 22 early, players will have to follow these steps:

  • Sign up for an EA Play subscription
  • Pre-load FIFA 22
  • Load up FIFA 22 when EA Play early access starts up
  • Play through your trial

When does FIFA 22 early access start?

FIFA 22 early access will begin, roughly, at the beginning of October 2021, around five days before the launch of the game.

This is a provisional window as no release date has been confirmed for the title at the time of writing.

What is EA Play and how much is it?


EA Play is available as a monthly, or yearly subscription to members, with the following plans available:

EA Play (Playstation/Xbox/PC)

Monthly: £3.99

Yearly: £19.99

EA Play Pro (PC)

Monthly: £14.99
