FIFA 21’s early access trial has just launched but is reportedly inaccessible for many players.
However, problems with the EA Play app on consoles have restricted some players from accessing the trial.
While the issues are being worked on, EA says it should be possible to download the trial from the FIFA 21 page on console stores.
But multiple console users are reporting that attempts to download the trial aren’t working. The same issue is being reported by Steam players too.
In late September EA confirmed it wouldn’t be releasing a FIFA 21 demo before the game’s launch. In a rare break from tradition, the publisher said it was forgoing a pre-release demo so that it can “focus our development team’s time on delivering the best full game experience for current & next-gen consoles.”
A FIFA 21 gameplay trailer released in August showcased several new features including Agile Dribbling, Creative Runs, a reimagined collision system, plus updates to passing and blocking.
FIFA 21 will also offer new co-operative experiences for Volta, the street football mode introduced in FIFA 20, and FIFA Ultimate Team.
EA has said the yet-to-be-dated next-gen version of FIFA 21 will include “blazing fast” load times, deferred lighting and rendering, and enhanced animation technology, among other features.
