FIFA 18: Are limited-edition CLUB versions of FIFA 18 finally on the way?

This would certainly please a lot of fans

EA Sports has given Ajax their very own limited edition version of FIFA 18 – which could mean other club-specific versions are on the way.

Goal.com posted a picture of the sleek edition, which comes complete with a red cover emblazoned with the Eredivisie side’s logo.

Ajax’s eSports players Koen Weijland and Dani Hagebeuk are used to show it off.

While there has been no official word on whether EA will be rolling out these bespoke covers to more clubs, the move would certainly be welcomed by fans.

If more were introduced, they would likely be sold via club websites, as per Ajax, rather than from mainstream retailers.

You can buy the bespoke edition from the Ajax official shop

If previous years are anything to go by, the FIFA 18 demo will arrive around September 15 – with the full game launching on September 29.

The FIFA 17 demo dropped on September 13, with the full game arriving on September 27. FIFA 16 followed the same pattern, with the demo arriving on September 8 and the game released on the 22nd.

How can I download it?

The demo will appear in Origin, PS Store and Xbox Live. It’ll be ‘Featured’ so should be easy to find.

If there are any issues, use the ‘search’ function and type in ‘FIFA 18 demo’.

Once you find it, click ‘download’ and it’ll begin the process.

How long will it take to download?

We don’t know how big the file will be but make sure to download it as soon as it’s released.

The servers will be under strain given just how many people will be downloading it, so the earlier, the better.

To give yourself the best possible chance, make sure to connect your console to an Ethernet cable. You’ll see slightly faster speeds.

So, what’s in the demo?

If it’s the same build EA have been showing off at their preview events, you’ll be able to play as a number of teams including Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, PSG and Juventus.

  • Manchester City
  • Manchester United

You’ll also likely be able to play through the first part of The Journey: Hunter Returns – although we wouldn’t doing that unless you’ve played the first one.

No sweat, here’s what happens at the end of The Journey  – if you won’t have time to play through it.
