FIFA 18's demo will land on PS4 and Xbox One just two weeks before the full game is released, according to reports from The Express.
This means gamers can expect to be playing by Friday, September 15 should EA follow the same release pattern as previous games. FIFA 17's demo launched on September 13 before a full September 27 release date last year, and FIFA 16's demo was similarly on both PSN and Xbox Live a full fortnight before the finished game.
EA themselves haven't confirmed a release date for the demo, but The Daily Star had previously also reported that the taster would be available 2 weeks before FIFA 18 hits shelves.
As for what will be included in the demo, both newspapers suggest that FIFA 18's teaser will be much the same code players experienced at various gaming conventions over the Summer. This means teams like Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich, PSG, LA Galaxy and Toronto FC should be playable.
An official announcement from EA is expected soon, although it does appear FIFA 18 will follow the same formula as previous entries in the series.
