Less than 2 weeks to go until the FIFA 16 demo hits the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. It’s so rare for games to even release demos anymore, whereas last gen it seemed every single release got one. But at least EA is holding strong with their flagship soccer game. Also need to give credit for holding strong and continuing to make this game for PC. I think it is the last sports game EA still releases on PC, as the others have all gone console-only. 

Back to the point, the demo is going to feature 10 men’s and 2 women’s teams. The women’s teams can only play against each other. Those teams are:

  • FC Barcelona
  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • Chelsea FC
  • Inter Milan
  • Manchester City
  • Paris Saint-Germain
  • Real Madrid C.F.
  • River Plate
  • Seattle Sounders
  • USA Women
  • Germany Women

You get 3 stadiums to play in: Dortmund’s Borussia-Park, Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, and Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu. And can play across 4 game modes, listed below. If you choose to play the all German match up of Dortmund vs. Mönchengladbach you also get the full Bundesliga Broadcast Presentation. Those game modes:

  • Kick-Off: jump onto the pitch and play a match. When starting the FIFA 16 Demo for the first time you will begin at El Clasico, Real Madrid at home to Barcelona. After that you can pick any of those previously mentioned teams.
  • FIFA Ultimate Team Draft: Make careful decisions as you draft a squad, then take them onto the pitch in an offline match.
  • FIFA Trainer: A new contextual training system, to pick up some new tips while playing Kick Off or FUT Draft.
  • New Skill Games: while matches are loading you’ll have a chance to try out six new skill games. 

FIFA is the game I play the most year in and year out and I can’t wait for the next one. The demos will release starting September 8th, although there is the possibility that they will be staggered between the 8th and 10th by console. Pre-order information is available on the official site and the full game will release on September 22nd.
