EA Play members are now able to access their 10 hour trial of FIFA 22, with plenty of players already getting stuck into the new features and game modes available in the latest game of EA Sports’ FIFA franchise.
EA Play members now access a 10-hour trial for FIFA 22, but there’s a way for next-gen console owners to receive extra hours of playtime.
EA Play allows players that sign-up to the subscription service access to exclusive benefits and EA published games, the chance to trial new EA games before launch for up to 10 hours of playtime, including FIFA 22, and save on EA digital purchases with a 10% member discount, including FIFA points, downloadable content and full games.
But only players on PS5/Xbox Series X/S are able to receive the added 10 hours of playtime, due to both versions of FIFA 22 being available on next-gen consoles.
So, here are the instructions for how to access an extra 10-hour trial on next-gen consoles.
How to access a 20-hour of the FIFA 22 EA Play trial
To access your 20-hour FIFA 22 EA Play trial ahead of the official release date on Monday, September 27 or Friday, October 1, depending on which version of the game you pre-ordered, follow the guide below:
Subscribe to EA Play
Download your FIFA 22 EA Play trial on PS5/Xbox Series X/S

Go to the store
Search for the PS4 or Xbox One version of the trial
Add the PS4 or Xbox One version of FIFA 22 to your game library

This method allows you to have both the PS5/PS4 or Xbox Series X|S/Xbox one trial versions on your console, allowing players access to two 10 hour trials of FIFA 22. This gives players more time to earn progress, especially on Ultimate Team, ahead of the official release of the game next week.
