EA SPORTS FC 24 is getting closer every day. You're probably excited about getting together with your friends to play and have incredible moments in the virtual football world. During your moments of hype, you might be wondering, will it come to Xbox Game Pass?
It's a reasonable question. After all, Xbox Game Pass has received a lot of high-profile releases since its launch day. Unfortunately, things are different with EA SPORTS FC 24, but there's also some good news—you can try it for free with the service.
The bad news is that EA SPORTS FC 24 won't be part of Xbox Game Pass at launch. That said, there will be a way for players to try its version for free. This way, you'll have the opportunity to test the new football game without having to spend extra money.
Trying EA SPORTS FC 24 for free with Xbox Game Pass is straightforward. All you need is an active membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The reason it's a requirement is that this membership tier also gives you access to EA Play, Electronic Arts' service.
In case you didn't know, EA Play allows you to try up to 10 hours of Electronic Arts' new releases. This includes EA SPORTS FC 24, and the trial will be available starting from September 22nd.
To access the EA SPORTS FC 24 trial, you just need to follow these steps:
- Log in to your account with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
- Go to your game library
- Look for the EA Play tab
- Select the trials menu
- Find EA SPORTS FC 24 and install it
We want to emphasize that this EA SPORTS FC 24 trial only lasts for 10 hours, but you'll have access to the full game, and you can keep your progress if you decide to purchase it. Additionally, the game's presence in the trial does not mean it's part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
Currently, it's unknown if there are plans for EA SPORTS FC 24 to be included in the Xbox Game Pass catalog. In fact, no entry in the series has made it to the basic level of the service.
The situation is different with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which also includes EA Play. Approximately six months after its release, each installment in the sports series becomes available on EA Play. Therefore, it's expected that EA SPORTS FC 24 will arrive on EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate between May and June of 2024.
Are you excited to play EA SPORTS FC 24? What are you looking forward to the most in this new football game?
EA SPORTS FC 24 will debut on September 29th on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
