Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to download the FIFA demo , I think it might interest you to learn more about the possibilities offered by the latter.

Well, usually the FIFA demo allows you to test the Kick- Off mode , or the “normal game”, with a few selected teams (for example, on FIFA 20 the teams available were Tottenham, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool).

In the demo, this mode is often limited to a maximum duration of 4 minutes and numerous announcements appear at the beginning and end of each game explaining the qualities of the game and how to purchase the final version. You can play as many games as you want and you can also play it with other people locally, but you will always have to skip these “information pages”.

Every year FIFA introduces new features and often allows players to try them for free through the demo. For example, in FIFA 19 it was possible to test the “adventure” mode called The Journey , while in FIFA 20 there was a brief taste of Volta : a mode that allows you to play on the street (in the style of FIFA Street), and of UEFA Champions League , with matches that retrace the prestigious football tournament.

Even in the case of the new modes, the player is simply introduced to them and often games last a few minutes and are filled with advertisements inviting them to buy the full game. There are no restrictions on the number of matches, but often the teams and activities available are limited.

Unfortunately, I can’t give you detailed information regarding the PC requirements , as each version of FIFA is clearly different. In any case, usually all information of this type is published on the official website of Electronic Arts . So you shouldn’t have to work too hard to figure out if the FIFA demo can work well on your computer.

How to download FIFA demos on PC

The FIFA computer demo can be downloaded through Origin , the official program that allows you to manage Electronic Arts titles. Typically, the PC version of FIFA is only compatible with the Windows operating system.

To download and install Origin, then connected to the official website of Electronic Arts and click on the Download item on the main page. When the download is complete, start the OriginThinSetup.exe file obtained and first select the Run item and then the Install Origin item ; then check the box I have read and accept the Origin End User License Agreement and click Continue . If prompted, click on Yes , to grant all the necessary permissions to start the setup.

Next, type in the email address and password of your Electronic Arts account and press on the Login item . If you don’t want to enter your password too many times to log in, I also recommend checking the Keep me signed in box . If you do not have an account yet, just click on CREATE AN ACCOUNT , enter Country / Region and date of birth , check the box I accept the agreement with the user and click on Next .

After this step too, choose who can view your profile , your activities and your friends , selecting one of the available items among All , Friends , Friends of friends and Nobody . Finally, you just have to click on Create account and you will be sent a confirmation email that contains a 6-digit verification code : type the latter in the appropriate text field and press the Continue and Start buttons, to complete the registration. For more details, I invite you to take a look at my guide on how to create an EA account .
