FIFA 17: Get early access to the game before its official release date

If you can't wait until the release date get early access now

Get ten hours of game time before the game hits shelves

Register as an EA Access member and you can play FIFA 17, one whole week before its official launch date.

The popular football game will go on shelves on September 29, but if you can't wait that long then you're in luck.

If you're not an EA member you can head over to their website and register now.

Once you have joined you will be able to play the game for a full 10 hours, but unfortunately it is not available on PS4.

Ten hours of game time equals to about 100 full matches - plenty of time for you to see the latest perks and add ons.

Membership costs £3.99 and, as well as gaining access to FIFA 17, you will also be able to trial other games too including Forza Horizon 3.

There's also other perks to joining up, including a 10% discount if you purchase the game from the XBox Live online stores.

EA games are remaining tight-lipped about what time the game will officially launch.

Players in North America will be able to get their hands on the game on September 27, two days earlier than the UK release.

Once your 10 hours of game time everything you have unlocked will carry over to the full release.

As soon as you have downloaded or bought a copy of the game, on the official launch, you can start playing straight away - avoiding the long installation process.
