You can play FIFA 17 for free during Thanksgiving weekend

EA is doing another one of those extended trials

We don’t typically do much FIFA talk around these parts, but I know you’re out there. I know some of you are into these games! If you’ve held off on this year’s installment but are willing to set aside the time and storage needed to download an extended trial, this is the news for you.

On Xbox One and PlayStation 4, FIFA 17 will be free to download and play from Thursday, November 24 at 10:00am Pacific until Sunday, November 27 at 11:59pm Pacific.

There are caveats, of course: this isn’t the entire unrestricted game (it’s “all in-game features, Ultimate Team, and a portion of The Journey game mode”) and there’s a 10-hour limit on your play time (though seemingly only on Xbox One). What’s more, “EA Access subscribers who played FIFA 17 during the pre-release limited time trial may not have full access to the 10-hour free trial.”

With that in mind, this could be a good way to gauge your interest in the game and determine if the full version is worth getting yet at Black Friday pricing. Your story mode progress will carry over.
