In our earlier reports, we mentioned EA Sports releasing its Patch 1.03 Update for the PC version of the "FIFA 17" game. Today, EA Sports has another good news for "FIFA 17" fans. The developer has just announced that "FIFA 17," EA Sports' flagship football game, will be free to play starting Wednesday through Sunday, Nov. 28.
According to Eurogamer.net, The free-to-play weekend will stretche from 1 p.m. on Nov. 24 to 2:59 a.m. Nov. 28. This is part of the company's attempt to make Thanksgiving memorable for game fans.
Like the game's previous demo and previews, which also are offered through the EA Sports Access subscription, the trial gives everyone 10 hours of game time on Xbox One console. However, on PS4, it's different, here players can play as much as they want until the free weekend ends.
All the game features, including Career mode, Ultimate mode and a portion of the game's The Journey mode will be accessible during the pre-release limited time trial.
Additionally, game saves and progress made during the limited trial are transferable if a player chooses to buy the full game, which said to be around 42 GB.
EA Access subscribers who already played FIFA 17 on Xbox One console during the pre-release limited time trial may not have full access to the new 10-hour free trial if the player has previously consumed all of the 10-hours free game time.
However, EA is offering the game at a sales price and it's Black Friday time, so there's no need for worries.
