The FIFA 17 demo is right around the corner

With PES 2017 already having a playable demo, EA Sports has decided to kick the rivalry off ahead of both games’ launches with a demo for FIFA 17.

Fans will be able to get their first hands-on of the game when the demo arrives next week on September 13. The fact the FIFA 17 demo drops the same day PES 2017 arrives in stores can’t be mere coincidence.

FIFA 17’s lead producer Garreth Reeder confirmed the demo’s release date in an interview with Game Reactor.

Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Olympique Lyonnais, Paris Saint-Germain, Seattle Sounders, Tigres UANL, FC Bayern Monaco, Gamba Osaka, Inter, Juventus

Stamford Bridge, Suita City Football Stadium, Centuitylink Field were also the playable stadia.
