FIFA 15 is coming later this month to the new generation of consoles and PC. For a change, the PC versions is actually going to share the same underlying engine and technology as the console versions. Yes, it’ll be using the fabled Ignite Engine for more realistic everything. And you’ll be able to give it a test run today.

EA’s confirmed that you’ll be able to download a demo for the footie sim on PC today, to see how it’ll run on your own PC, two weeks ahead of release. It’ll also available right now on Xbox One, and will be heading to the PSN later. On the Xbox One, it’s not locked behind some sort of subscription like EA access.

“The FIFA 15 PC demo is a fantastic and free way to test out if your gaming rig has the right stuff,” says EA.  “When the demo goes live, it doesn’t cost you a thing to check out the performance of the game on your gaming PC. What you experience in the FIFA 15 demo is just a sampling of the full FIFA 15 game, but it’s a perfect test of the Ignite Engine on your PC. Tweak the settings to get the most out of FIFA 15 on your gaming rig.”

Here are the recommended specs for the PC version, if you plan on getting it for your ‘puter.

That’s pretty reasonable stuff. The last FIFA on Pc was a gimped version missing many of the things that made FIFA 14 different from the previous one – but this time it’ll be the same. I don’ know though; something like FIFA strikes me as a purer console experience; especially when you have 3 mates around with controllers shouting at the TV.

But hey! At least those of you who won’t be playing Destiny today could be playing something new and shiny. Caveat; you’ll need to have Origin installed.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

      ONWARD NOBLE STEED!

      • The Adventures of JJ

        Nothing quite as noble and humble as a cat 😉

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          Noble perhaps, humble, heck no!

    • CAE9872

      What an awesome picture!

    • ????????????

      Best.picture.ever. And in a Fifa15 thread. It can’t get much more epic than that.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Why are you taun-taunting them?

      • WarframedSquirrel

        Because Destiny’s gonna be EVERYWHERE anyway.

        • The Adventures of JJ

          Like yo mamma!

          • WarframedSquirrel

            Hey, I’m not from ‘murika or Brakpan… my mamma ain’t everywhere.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Those specs are more reasonable than the Ryse & DR3 ports ones.

  • The Adventures of JJ

    Humble store End of Summer sale peeps

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    WHYYYYY would I want to play soccer?

    • The Adventures of JJ

      Because you live in a frat house?

    • Hammersteyn

      *Football

      • The Adventures of JJ

        Don’t you come with that kak today Mister Hammer. ;P

        • CAE9872

          Hahahahaha….”Mister Hammer”

          Master Hammer?

          • Hammersteyn

            Master?

        • Hammersteyn

          But the tag says football

          • The Adventures of JJ

            That’s because Geoff likes to pretend he’s not South African 😉

          • Hammersteyn

            As far as I know only Murica calls it soccer

          • The Adventures of JJ

            And South Africans also. It actually forms part of our dialect.

          • Hammersteyn

            So when do we start driving on the right, oh wait, that’s also happened in some cases

          • The Adventures of JJ

            Haha. The word soccer comes from England, they used it interchangeably in the 1800s to differentiate between the association of football and what they then called “rugby football”. The South Africans adopted the word soccer from the British.

            But driving on right-hand side is madness, how am I supposed to joust? I can’t balance my lance in my left hand ;P

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Your argument, is extremely valid! Jousting takes priority!

    • benjona

      You must be fat

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        I wish, I really struggle to pick up weight, losing on the other hand, happens wayyyy to easy

  • Hammersteyn

    I wish I could but I don’t want to.

  • Hammersteyn

    Love the header

    • CAE9872

      Now where is Jonah – he is going to be betwixt and between…Destiny vs FIFA vs Destiny vs FIFA…

      • Hammersteyn

        According to the clan page………….. The fuckers playing Destiny >:(

        • CAE9872

          Basta….I mean lucky guy!

          • Hammersteyn

            hehe

  • Roland
