The FIFA 21 early gain access to trial has actually started – and it’s triggered EA Play to crash entirely.

Social media and reddit are flooded with grievances from fans who were intending to get stuck in to the 10 hour FIFA 21 trial just to discover the EA Play app toss up a mistake message.

I experienced this very same mistake message when attempting to pack up EA Play on PS4 at 4pm UK time – when the FIFA 21 trial was expected to start.

However, there is a workaround. If you browse the PlayStation Store for FIFA 21, choose the very first outcome (which needs to be the FIFA 21 basic edition), and press x on the Download Trial window – the one beside the pre-order window – you can get FIFA 21 downloading.


I’ve attempted this myself, and I am presently downloading the video game.


As for Xbox One, there’s a direct link to the EA Play trial on the Microsoft Store. Make sure you make it possible for remote gain access to on your Xbox console settings or the download will not begin immediately.

The trial does not seem live on Steam yet.
