Posting demos now? Well, it's just a heads up.

Cool story...
I got hammered 10-3 on FIFA 17 back in March. I uninstalled it and haven't played since <--- not a cool story.

The FIFA 18 demo launches on Xbox One, PS4 and Origin today. It can work two ways with a demo, you can either play it, enjoy it and go on to buy the full game, or you can play it, realise it's the same as last year, and the year before, and the year before that and save yourself about £50. It's win/win

I'll pop the relevant links in as they become available.

So what's included?

Kick Off Mode

Experience FIFA 18’s Real Player Motion Technology, a groundbreaking animation system that unlocks a new level of realistic, responsive, and fluid gameplay. Player Personalities give some of the biggest stars in the world the distinct traits of their real-world counterparts, Team Styles let players mimic their favourite clubs’ distinct on-field tactics, and Immersive Atmospheres bring some of the football world’s most famous stadiums to life during matches.

Plus, enjoy the brand-new broadcast overlays for LaLiga and MLS, as well as vibrant and region-specific sights and sounds that make football’s biggest stadiums come to life.

Play as one of these 12 top football clubs in Kick Off mode:

  • Manchester United
  • Manchester City
  • Real Madrid CF
  • Atlético de Madrid
  • Juventus F.C.
  • FC Bayern Munich
  • Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
  • LA Galaxy
  • Toronto FC
  • Boca Juniors
  • C.D. Guadalajara
  • Vissel Kobe

Play in one of these 4 stadiums from around the world:

With new high-res crowds, regionalized atmospheres, player banners, on-pitch graphics and more, the most immersive football experiences are brought to life in FIFA 18.

  • Santiago Bernabéu
  • La Bombonera
  • StubHub Center
  • King Fahd Stadium

The Journey: Hunter Returns

Alex Hunter is back for a second season, and rumour has it, he’s on the move. Preview the next chapter in Hunter’s story in the Demo as he goes global alongside a star-studded supporting cast featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, James Harden, plus new playable characters. The future is bright, and the world is talking about Hunter… but life in football isn’t always fair.

I'm not keen on this new trend of free game demos becoming "deals" on here.

real gamers go on gameplay buddy. fifa fan boys love the real names etc. …real gamers go on gameplay buddy. fifa fan boys love the real names etc. pah



To be honest buying both most years for probably at least 10 years I'd say its not always cut and dry, also for many whilst it certain elements of the actual on field play might now edge PES (and for many years recently that wasn't the case) PES suffers from depth of its modes, I think PES suits a more casual approach - dip in and out, you aren't going to get lost in a deep franchise style mode. My stance has always been different strokes for different folks.

When it comes to most things I don't consider myself a "real" gamer anyway.

In sports games I want to get into a franchise mode - NBA/Madden/NHL/Rugby... for me FIFA is winning that battle but certainly elements that PES nails and I wish it could be a hybrid.

Maybe its

Real Football fans - FIFA

Real Gamers/beardy hipsters - PES?




It certainly has always been more fashionable to say you are a PES fan for sure. Even in the dark days of the series.

Like I say I buy both every year - so I am 100% on the fence.

Genuinely tempted to pick up PES this year, simply so I can slide with ease into the 'beardy hipsters' category

It's cool. I appreciate it's not going to appeal to everyone...I don't even play FIFA. But in fairness, I have slapped it into the 'Freebies' section.

Thats scripted fifa for you, I already know this one is going to be THROUGH THE ROOF scripting just like they always are, i'll wait for it to go on ea access i think this year

I'll give it a go,but it's gonna have to be good to beat pro EVO for gameplay tho.

The demo isn't available to download yet on PS4 is it?

It will do. It's in the 'Gaming' group. But I can assure you it's in Freebies

Mordhau alpha also out today, I would have been excited to try this otherwise.

Click on Deals and then New (don't choose gaming) and it is there listed...this isn't a Deal thoigh it is a Freebie. New menu looks rubbish and doesnt work. A step backwards...

I know it's listed there I've just said - because it's in the gaming group. It's tagged with 'Gaming' and 'Freebies'. It shows on both pages. Has been like this for the past 8 weeks or so.

Dude you are arguing over nothing! HUKD has changed its layout and the way the categories used to be. Before you had individual categories, now you have tags! There is no actual categories anymore. They have listed the classic categories/tags in the drop down menu on top but they are actually tags and when you post a deal the site automatically picks up the tag and put your deal in other groups/categories. Nothing you can do about it excep getting on with it.

Simply Games had the premium edition for £35. They should be delivering mine today (2 days early) as it was sent out yesterday first class.

Cheers buzz, still on the fence over this or pro evo so will try both now that the demos are both out.

Good heads up. Technically it's a deal... But I like to be informed of such demos or betas. Otherwise I'll miss the opportunity. Not one to surf the store every week.
So heat.

Don't get that real name stuff... I only play my club anyways so your not even playing with proper teams. I'd be happy with fake players

what time does the PSN store update?

Its a pity the way EA deal with lag compensation I would need to downgrade my Internet to compete.

Oh bloody great! The boy will be downloading this tonight then...only to destroy me on it an celebrate like a nutter in the living room.

Is today the 12th?
