FIFA 18 Demo Guide - Release Date, Teams, Download and More


The FIFA 18 demo will be a limited version of the full game. It’s designed to show users what the full game will be like, showing off new features and gameplay improvements. Any progress will not carryover from the demo into the full game.

There are two game modes available on the FIFA 18 Demo: Kick-Off and The Journey. Just like last year, Ultimate Team was not included in the demo. It also has a menu that describes the new features of the game and another one that gives you the chance to buy the full game.


Kick-Off Mode

On Kick-Off mode, you can play a 4 minutes halves “Match Day” alone or against a friend. Take to the pitch with some of the best clubs in the world. There are thirteen teams available to play. It is possible to send the goals scored on the demo to EA Sports Football Club.

Here are the game settings of the kick-off mode:

Match Lenght:
8 minutes (4 minutes each half)

Match Type:
Single player or against a friend

Difficulty Level:

The Journey II

The FIFA 18 Demo will include a limited version of The Journey II, also known as ‘Hunter Returns’. On The Journey mode, you can control Alex Hunter, inside and outside the pitch, on a journey to make his mark in one of the most popular clubs. It’s a cinematic world informed and influenced by real players, personalities, locations and events that take you places you’ve never been and bring you experiences only available in FIFA 18.

Obviously, this game mode has a few restrictions in the demo, like the club where he plays (probably Real Madrid) or the limited time you can play. Progress will not carry over to the full version of FIFA 18, but should be enough to help you decide if this game mode is for you or not.

  1. Hey there, i’m from Germany and can’t wait to download and play the demo. But the release times at the top of this site can’t be correct because I can’t find the demo at the store. I also changed my country to check if can get it in the USA or England but no. Could you help me and say why I can’t get the Demo?
