Everything you need to know about the FIFA 21 Early Access trial

As of yesterday, gamers got their first opportunity to give the latest iteration of FIFA a whirl through EA’s Early Access Pass.

Anyone with the Access Pass will get a ten-hour trial period ahead of the game’s official release next week. A quick piece of advice, if you do get the trial period, make sure you manually close the game when you’ve finished playing, otherwise it will continue to run in the background and eat into your time.

All of your progress from the trial period will be carried over into the full game too.
