It’s well-known that before the release date of FIFA 17, the free FIFA 17 beta allows players who are 18 years old or above to test the game before it’s released to the general public. If selected by EA, you’ll be able to download the game direct to your Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 or PS3. Unfortunately the beta won’t be available for PC users.
