EA Sports FIFA 18 is officially being released on September 29, but its early access starts on Tuesday, September 26. To gain early access you’ll need to buy either the FIFA 18 Icon or Ronaldo edition.
If you’re an EA Access member, then you’ll be the first ones to receive the FIFA 18 titles. EA always keeps the best interest of their premium members first and EA Access members will be able to test out the new FIFA 18 title even before the ones who pre-order it.
EA Access members will be able to take an exclusive trial of FIFA 18 starting September 21 — one week before the official launch — free of cost.
If the member decides to buy the game after the free access is revoked, all their game progress will automatically be carried on. What’s more, members can even avail an additional 10% off on the title.
Difference between FIFA 18 Icon, Ronaldo, and Standard Editions?
EA Sports is offering benefits to FIFA Ultimate Team players as they’re offering special edition FIFA 18 titles which not only give them a three-day early access to the game, but also various FUT benefits.
The Icon Edition is only available for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, and will come with the following benefits:
40 Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (2 per week for 20 weeks)
TOTW Loan Player Packs (One 3-match loan player for 20 weeks)
While the Standard and Ronaldo Edition, both, give the buyers Cristiano Ronaldo loan for 5 FUT matches and 8 special edition FUT kits, buying the Standard edition will not give you the three-day early access.
Other than all this, the Icon edition gives players $120 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold FUT packs and those who buy Ronaldo and Standard Edition receive $60 and $15 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold FUT packs, respectively.
