FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition early access release time, date, price of PS5, PS4, Xbox and PC. FIFA 22 pre-order customers can start playing the annual football sim from September 27. Here’s everything you need to know about the early access release date.
FIFA 22 fans can play the full game early and without limits, but only by pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition.
The FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition is available for £89.99 on PlayStation devices, Xbox consoles and PC.
Pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition gives users bonus FIFA Points, Loan Items, and a whole boatload of FUT bonuses.
But arguably the best reason to pre-order the Ultimate Edition is to gain early access to FIFA 22.
The FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition has a September 27 release date on all platforms. The Standard Edition launches a few days later on October 1.
EA Sports is yet to announce the Ultimate Edition launch time, although some fans believe it will be available from midnight on September 27.
Based on EA Play early access and traditional FIFA update times, however, it’s possible the Ultimate Edition will have a 6pm BST release time for UK fans. Express Online has contacted EA Sports for confirmation.
Unlike the EA Play early access period, Ultimate Edition owners aren’t limited to just 10-hours of action.
Express Online has posted the full list of Ultimate Edition benefits and bonus items below.
