FIFA 15 'Xbox beta invites distributed'

EA also reportedly plans to release a demo of this year's game "soon"

Details regarding a FIFA 15 closed beta and game demo have emerged ahead of announcements expected to be made at Gamescom later this week.

According to numerous Reddit users said to have received beta invites, EA plans to host different public tests for multiple FIFA 15 game modes including FIFA Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs and Seasons.

FIFA 15 betas would appear to initially be available only on Xbox One and Xbox 360, with a FIFA Ultimate Team test set to kick off on August 21, according to invitations received via email.


A cached webpage reportedly showing an entry posted on EA's support website reads: "If you are selected to play the FIFA 15 Closed Beta access, you will receive an email at the address associated with your Origin Account with your Closed Beta access code on Xbox One or Xbox 360.

"Beta participants are randomly chosen and contacted by email invite only (our game advisors are not authorized to provide email invites). As there is limited space on the Closed Beta, not everyone will receive an invite.

"Don't worry, the FIFA 15 demo drops soon! Be sure to stay tuned on, Twitter, and Facebook."

EA announced in early August that FIFA 15 will include all 20 Premier League stadiums for the first time in the series' history, as well as more than 200 new scanned player faces.

The FIFA 15 release date is September 23 in North America, September 25 in Europe and September 26 in the UK. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, 3DS and Vita.
