Try out FIFA 17’s new story mode as Alex Hunter

While the demo for PCs can be directly downloaded to your computer, the demo for consoles is available on their respective online stores. The demo features a unique experience from the full-length game called ‘The Journey’ where you can play as a young Alex Hunter who navigates the ups and downs of playing in the Premier League.

Join him as every decision you make impacts his career both on and off the field. Be there as he struggles to make a place for himself at some of the best clubs in England. This is the first time the game will feature a role-playing mode with movie-like scenes where Hunter is seen interacting with his teammates, coaches, fans and the media.

Apart from an exclusive sneak peek into ‘The Journey’, there is a kick off mode available in the demo that allows you to play with 12 different clubs: Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Olympique Lyonnais, Seattle Sounders, Bayern München, Tigres U.A.N.L. (MX) and Gamba Osaka.

Three stadiums are also part of the demo – Stamford Bridge, Century Link and Suita City Football Stadium. 

However, before downloading the free version, keep in mind that the latest features that are a direct result of the Frostbite engine will only be available for next-gen consoles and PC and will be missing from the PS3 and Xbox 360. 

With the release of the full game only a fortnight away, the demo is bound to keep FIFA fans occupied and excited about the real thing.
