We have some fantastic news for those of you who are looking forward to trying out the highly anticipated FIFA 13 demo. EA has just updated their Twitter account to give specific release times for when the demo will be going live on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Developers sometimes decide to provide their fans with estimated times for when new content will be arriving on their respective platform stores. While this wasn’t the case with Battlefield 3 and the Armored Kill expansion, EA Sports on the other hand have decided to be much more generous.
They have revealed specific release time details for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and unfortunately it looks like PS3 users are going to have to wait a little longer for the demo to arrive on the PlayStation Store. It is going live firstly on PC at 9am UK Time, then between 10am and 2pm for Xbox 360 gold members. Lastly but not least, PS3 users should see the demo live on the store around the 10pm-2am mark on Tuesday evening.
PS3 users won’t be happy that they have a 12 hour wait on their hands as Xbox 360 users get the demo at 10am, but at least the demo is landing on the same day for all platforms, which is starting to become a thing of the past in today’s add-on content rollercoaster.
If you live outside the UK and are really excited about downloading the demo as well, EA has also provided some very useful WorldTimeBuddy links which will tell you when the demo is being released in your location. For example, FIFA fans in Hong Kong will be able to download the demo at 4pm today on their PC, as seen in the screenshot example.
You’ll find the global release times for the FIFA 13 demo on PC here, Xbox 360 here and PS3 here. Who said that developers never provide official release times for new content? Well done to EA for giving all FIFA 13 fans a great heads-up here. To recap, PC users will get the demo first, followed by Xbox 360 and then PS3 later tonight (UK time).
Are you happy with the release times? You probably won’t be if you’re on PS3.
