FIFA 18: EA Sports just shattered the hopes and dreams of thousands of FIFA 18 fans

Bad news, FIFA fans.

For those looking to get their hands on FIFA 18 early in the form of the beta – you’re going to have to wait a little longer.

EA has overhauled the way its allowing access this year – so rather than casting the net far and wide, only specially selected players by EA Sports are going to get a chance to play it early.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


That means if you haven’t heard yet, then you’re unlikely to have made the cut.

Writing on the FIFA 18 forums, EA told fans: “This year we’ve removed registration. We’re emailing selected players with their Beta codes.

“We only have enough codes for the players that we sent emails to. If you didn’t get an email with a code, our Advisors won’t be able to give you one, nor do we have any available on the forums.”

The next chance to get hands on with the game will at Gamescom in Cologne on August 22-26.

Failing that, the FIFA 18 demo is expected to launch on September 18 – allowing gamers a chance to play FIFA 18 two weeks before it launches on September 29.

PES 2018, meanwhile, did the exact opposite – and provided an open beta last month. The gamble paid off, with pre-orders through the roof for Konami’s new football game.

It launches on September 14.


Have you signed up to play fantasy football yet?

If the answer is no you need to take a long, hard look at yourself.

You’ve got a £50m budget to pick 11 players, with all the biggest new signings ready and raring to go ahead of a mouthwatering new Premier League campaign.
