FIFA 17 is coming out in September but like always, there will a demo for players across the world. EA Access is expected to offer a FIFA 17 demo a few days before release.

However, the game’s very first public hands-on is set for August 26. Players in the UK will get to try out the game almost a month ahead of FIFA 17 release.

The event will take place at Birmingham’s NEC between August 26-28 where fans will get to try out this year’s FIFA game.

The UK is obviously a huge market for the FIFA series and so we are delighted, through Insomnia58, to be able to offer UK players the first chance to come and try out the latest installment,said EA Sports’ senior product marketing manager James Salmon.

This year we’re looking to bring the latest triple-A titles to our fans at the festival and with the likes of FIFA 17, we are fully delivering on that goal,” added Craig Fletcher, CEO of Multiplay

Tickets to the show are available for £25 over at the official website of the event. The show is described as “UK’s biggest gaming festival.”

FIFA 17 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

On a related note, FIFA 17 will feature Marcus Reus on the cover this year. Leo Messi and Barcelona has made a deal with rival PES 17. In fact, the Camp Nou won’t be available in FIFA 17 this year.

Moreover, PES 17 isn’t bothered by FIFA’s story mode. According to Adam Bhatti, the studio has been offering story like content for years. Head over here to read up more on that.
