For anyone who is a FIFA 18 fan, this week may have proved pretty exciting.

The first closed FIFA 18 beta test was launched by EA Sports, giving those selected to participate their first taste of action.

Unfortunately, it isn’t an open beta, meaning that most interested gamers will not get to take part.

But it won’t be the only chance for FIFA fans to try out the game before its big release in September.

EA Sports traditionally run a free FIFA 18 demo before launch, and this year will be no different.

While access is limited to certain teams and games modes, it will likely prove a very popular download.

You can expect an announcement in the coming weeks, probably following the FIFA 18 beta.

The FIFA 18 demo usually runs mid-september and can be access on PS4 and Xbox One, as well as other participating platforms.

There’s also the question of whether this will include FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch.

The versions differ, so EA might not release playable content on the new device before the release day.

According to a FIFA 18 Reddit post, FUT cards will now display a full list of player stats and attributes.

This will make it easier to see exactly what you're getting when a new player joins your team.

And as Dream Team FC points out, the way the cards are laid out suggests that you'll be able to comprehensively compare player stats.

The simple change has certainly gone down well with fans, who have praised the feature online.

With Mass Effect Andromeda DLC looking increasingly unlikely, developer BioWare has spoken about another forgotten franchise.

BioWare's Mike Laidlaw has discussed the Dragon Age franchise in a series of posts on Twitter.

Laidlaw suggested that BioWare still has plans for another two Dragon Age games and that there is no planned ending for the series.

"There is no planned ending for DA," he told one follower. There is an evolving plan that tends to look 2 games ahead or so.

"Thus, I could tell you what -could- be in a theoretical game 5, if there were a theoretical game 4 happening."

However, Laidlaw also said that it's unwise to stick to such a rigid plan.

He continued: "But I strongly believe that if you try to hold to a rigid plan that is a decade old by the time you reach the end, you are wasting ops."

Mass Effect Andromeda DLC is looking increasingly unlikely, as EA goes quiet on the franchise during its latest earnings call.

EA barely mentioned Mass Effect Andromeda during its first quarter earnings call, which suggests that new DLC is unlikely.

Battlefield 1 has proven a big success for EA, with a huge number of players now confirmed to have engaged with the game.

Two million new players are now known to have picked up and played the title over the past three months, but that doesn’t mean EA are pulling plans for a sequel.

This appeared to be confirmed during the latest company financial earnings call, with Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson and Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen confirming 12 games are in development at EA, all using the Frostbite engine.

This also apparently includes a new Battlefield game, although no further details were given on setting or location.

This was referenced simply as “the next great Battlefield game” and currently has no release date attached, aside from a 2018 window.

But while the recent earning call made for good news for Battlefield fans, the same can’t be said for Mass Effect.
