How FIFA 23 Early Access Works
For all their games, EA offers players 10am early access if they are members of EA Play. However, when it comes to FIFA, the company is known to allow 20 hours of game time, although it has not been confirmed whether this will be the case in FIFA 23.
Unlike the beta or demo, which left out features and modes, early access through EA Play unlocks the full game. That means you can get started right away with your Ultimate Team, ahead of the competition.
It also gives the developers one last chance to fix any issues before day one.
