Another year, another installation of EA’s biggest money making machine, FIFA. The football mania has been heavy this month with the Barclay’s premier’s league keeping up the heat. So just on cue, taking advantage yet again of the insane football fever, EA rolls out the demo for their latest and possibly greatest FIFA 17 across consoles and PC, both old and new gen. As you can see, no one’s been left out.
EA showed off the their newest approach to the football franchise during E3(Electronic Entertainment Expo) with the undeniably exciting new “Journey Mode”. A career mode which finally humanizes your football journey from the new kid on the block to the best imaginary striker in football history(We all know you made a striker!). A very personalized story alleviates you from the bland experience of grinding through every match on career mode without a more personal reason or perspective.
As for the demo’s Journey Mode, you’ll be playing as the rising star Alex Hunter(The one who made an appearence during EA’s E3 conference to promote the new Journey Mode). Along with the set playable character, you’ll be experiencing a portion of the mode playing for Manchester Fans(Man United Hater? hard luck!).
The journey mode isn’t the only feature available with the demo, you’ll also be able to access the kick-off mode which includes a brand new set of skill games available for the game’s loading screen. These are the teams that’ll be available in the demo’s kick-off mode:
- Manchester United
- Manchester City
- Real Madrid
- Paris Saint-Germain
- Olympique Lyonnais
- Seattle Sounders
- Bayern München
- Tigres U.A.N.L. (MX)
- Gamba Osaka
As for the stadium locations that the demo provides, there’ll be three, namely CenturyLink, Stamford Bridge, and Suita City Football Stadium. Here are all the links you’ll be needing to access the game on your system:
- Xbox One (8.05 GB)
- Xbox 360 (1.42 GB)
- PlayStation 4 (7.6 GB)
- PlayStation 3 (1.5 GB)

Although FIFA 17 is available on all current platforms including the old and the new gen systems alongside the PC. Most of the features such as the Journey mode and the majority of the Frostbite engine graphical features are limited to the next-gen consoles and PC only.
