September 29 isn’t too far off if you’re hanging for FIFA 18, but what if you could start playing today?

Well, you can to a degree, as a demo has just dropped.

First up, you can sample the story mode in The Journey: Hunter Returns, where Alex Hunter goes international.

Meanwhile, you can choose from any of 12 world-class clubs – including Manchester United, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and PSG – then check out heaps of the new FIFA 18 cool stuff in ‘Kick Off’ mode. This includes the new ‘Real Player Motion Technology’ animation system, stars demonstrating their distinct real life traits and being able to emulate realistic team play styles.

Stadiums like Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid), StubHub Center (L.A.), La Bombonera (Buenos Aires) and King Fahd Stadium (Saudi Arabia) are included.

Grab the demo for PS4 here, or Xbox One here.
