The FIFA 21 closed beta is part of the ritual of launching a new game in the series and reports are coming in of people getting their codes and starting their downloads.
The good news is that it’s very easy to opt-in and try and grab a FIFA 21 code from EA Sports.
From what has been shared, all you need to do is make sure you’re part of EA’s Email chain to get a chance at a beta code.
“Opt in to our emails for a chance to get invited to try the Beta. Go to your EA Account Email Preferences and check the box,” a message on the FIFA 21 beta page explains.
“If you’ve changed your email address or no longer have access to the one you used to create your account, swap emails from one account to another.
“If you can’t remember which email address you’re using for your EA Account, use this article for help finding it.
“You can also add a secondary email address to your account. This helps you reset your password if you’re locked out of your EA Account and primary email address. You can find the Secondary Email section at the bottom of the Security tab.
“We’ll send a code to selected FIFA players in the US and the UK who opted in to get EA emails, to the email address that’s linked to their EA Account.”
The downside is that EA will only be releasing a certain amount before everything launches later this week.
“Because of limited space in the Closed Beta, not everyone that’s opted in will get an email with a code, and our EA Advisors can’t grant additional ones,” the EA beta page adds.
“Your Beta code is just for you. It can’t be transferred or shared with another player.”
So it wouldn’t be surprising if you have missed out on a FIFA 21 closed beta code this week.
WHEN IS THE FIFA 21 CLOSED BETA RELEASE DATE?
According to EA, the FIFA 21 closed beta release date has been set for Friday, August 14, 2020.
This should be the same dates for both Xbox One and PS4 gamers looking to check out the new title.
Only players who receive an email with a FIFA 21 closed beta included will get access to the test.
The good news is that it will be running for some time, providing gamers with over two-weeks of playtime.
The FIFA 21 beta is set to run until September 1, 2020, and will be followed by further early access opportunities.
