Pfft...

Not quite at my biting point

If you haven't played it before, then this weekend is enough time to play through 'The Journey' which is brilliant in itself. Still a far from perfect game but it's worth a try for free!

Worth I shot I suppose.

Is there a penalty if I try and play it after the weekend? I just don't get the goal of giving away a game for free for a few days. But in their defence, the graphics do look pretty good.

It's just been announced that the FIFA 17 Free Weekend is happening on … It's just been announced that the FIFA 17 Free Weekend is happening on PS4 as well. The link in the announcement tweet is broken at the moment, but I suspect you'll be able to download the game through the PSN Store.



Good spot! Will update!

Assume PS+ is required? But Sony being a bit vague!

I didn't have a PS+ sub when I tried out the last Free Weekend, so I don't think you need one! I'm currently downloading it to make sure, so will update once it's done.

already have the FIFA 17 demo downloaded from the PS store. will it automatically let me play the full game (as it didn't before) or will I have to delete and download it fresh again?

tried this out today online. lagfest and quitters.

So, to update: After some playing about with the Free Weekend trial without PS+ it appears I can do all the offline modes (Career, The Journey) but not anything with Online. So, PS+ isn't required unless you want to do some online Multiplayer!

If it's the demo with only a few teams (that came out last year) then no, you'll have to download the Free Trial that's on the page at the moment (word of warning, though - it's 40GB!)

Xbox one only? No Xbox 360 this time?

I'm assuming these free weekends don't unlock trophies?

Has anyone managed to get this working on PS4? pseu twitter link is broken and searching on the store just brings up paid copies of the game.

The ps4 link on easports website regarding this promotion takes you through to the PS store standard edition (currently 15.99) as well so Im wondering if the demo version is essentially the full version for this weekend?

You can offer a mutual quit, but half the players are such idiots they will reject and happily continue playing the game even if its running like a slideshow.

Cant see it for xbox 360
