If you want to become the best in FIFA 17, you’re going to need a headstart and play before everyone else is playing. Here’s how to get Early Access for FIFA 17.

Every year FIFA-players on the PC and Xbox One get the opportunity to play the full game before its actual release. The Early Access for FIFA 17 will release on September 22, exactly one week before the game’s official release on September 29.
With Early Access, you can start playing FIFA 17 for 10 hours before the game is actually released. You can play parts of the singleplayer campaign and also try FIFA Ultimate Team. After those 10 hours, you’ll have to wait for the official release before you can start playing again. However, all the progress you have made during the Early Access will be available in the full game.
You will also be able to play FIFA Ultimate Team during the Early Access. You can even use the FIFA 17 Web App or the Mobile Companion (available once the Early Access launches) to trade and build your teams, without using up those 10 hours.
All the FIFA Points you buy and the packs you open, will also move over to the full game once it’s released.
FIFA 17 Early Access is exclusive to EA Access (Xbox One) or Origin Access (PC) members. Both services come with a subscription of €3,99 (£3.99) a month.
Both EA and Origin Access come with a selection of games that are free to play for members called the EA Vault. Games like Battlefield 4, FIFA 16, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and Titanfall are available to both platforms, but there are subtle differences between the two lists.
Being an EA/Origin Access member also gives you 10% discount on all EA digital purchases. This includes FIFA 17 itself, plus any FUT packs you buy through FIFA points.
Don’t forget that you can buy your Xbox Marketplace credit (to get more FIFA Points of course) right here at Startselect. We also have PlayStation Store gift cards available if you prefer Sony’s console. (availability depends on region)
