FIFA 16 demo available on Origin right this second


Do you like football? Do you like digital sports? Do you like combinations of the two? Then gosh darn do EA have the demo for you, unidentified young person! It’s available on Origin or via the official FIFA site. All the deets on what’s included below the latest trailer, showing off all the custom win animations you can now command from your players. To find it I had to put the word “Fifa” into YouTube’s search engine and that’s a sacrifice I never wish to make again.

If you do anything but timber and KO, you’re doing it wrong. Look at them fall over! Beautiful.

As for the rest of the demo, there’s 12 teams available, including the newly added women’s national teams for Germany and the USA. The others are:

  • Chelsea FC
  • Manchester City
  • FC Barcelona
  • Real Madrid
  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • PSG
  • Inter Milan
  • River Plate
  • Seattle Sounders FC

You can play them on one of three stadia for four minute halves. It also has access to the new Fifa Ultimate Team draft mode, which works kind of like a Hearthstone arena with football players. From packs of five you pick one player for each position, building a squad as you go. You can then take it online to play against others, with the aim of hitting four wins in a row for delicious rewards. EA broke it down in this video featuring, of all people, Gary Neville andJamie Carragher
