2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil demo launches this week

Try out the PS3 and Xbox 360 game ahead of its mid-April release

EA is to release a 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil demo this week.

While Xbox 360 and European demo launch times have yet to be confirmed, PlayStation's US arm says the demo will be released this Tuesday, April 1, when the weekly PS Store update is rolled out.


The game will launch exclusively on PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 15. It will feature 203 national teams, 7,469 players, 19 officially licensed managers, and 21 new stadiums including all 12 venues hosting this summer's World Cup matches.

EA also says it will offer "the deepest set of modes seen in a tournament title". Modes on offer include 'Road to the FIFA World Cup', 'Road to Rio de Janeiro', 'Captain your Country', 'Story of Finals', '2014 FIFA World Cup' and 'Story of Qualifying'. You can check out some of the game modes in the latest 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil trailer.

Explaining the decision not to release the title on Xbox One and PS4, an EA Sports spokesperson told CVG in February that the company's goal was to "create a great game within our development resources that could reach as many people as possible".
