This year's FIFA 20 EA Access release date is set to be on September 19, 2019. The application will allow console users to play FIFA 20 five days early, before Early Access becomes available via special editions. Users will be limited to a 10 hour trial, although all progress will be saved and carry over to the full game.
Historically, EA Access has always been exclusive to Xbox, however this year will be the very first time that PS4 (PlayStation) users will have an equal opportunity to play FIFA 20 early. In order to become a member, you will be required to subscribe for $4.99/month or $29.99/year.
EA Access also provides a 10% discount on EA digital purchases, which has historically included FIFA points within the FUT (Ultimate Team) game mode. Furthermore, members will be given instant access to a collection of full versions of popular PS4 and Xbox One titles. Check out our FIFA 20 EA Access guide directly below.

When Will FIFA 20 Be Available on EA Access?
The FIFA 20 trial will become available through EA Access on September 19, 2019. Despite thousands of fans attempting to start the game up as soon as the clock struck midnight in the United Kingdom, though, the developers have since announced the time it should be made available.
After seeing that their app was experiencing problems with so many players trying to access it at one time in the early hours of September 19 (BST), the official EA Access Twitter account clarified the release window with a tweet.
"To clear up some confusion, the FIFA 20 Play First Trial is not currently live and does not go live until the morning of the 19th in the Pacific time zone," it says. "We’re aiming to begin the rollout before noon."

Noon Pacific time would mean that the game will be available at the very latest at 8pm (BST) and 3pm (EST), slightly later than what we've seen in the past.
However, we have seen EA release 'Play First Trials' early in previous years, without any announcement. If the same happens this year, we recommend turning on notifications for us on Twitter to ensure that you don't miss out.
