Following what feels like an endless wait, FIFA 19 is within touching distance. With only hours to go until the official release of this year’s ultimate football game (it’s true – check out our FIFA 19 review to see why), many are wondering how to get access to the game at midnight, as soon as it’s available to buy.
While once upon a time the likes of Tesco, ASDA, GAME and other retailers would facilitate midnight releases for popular titles like Call of Duty and FIFA, the rise in digital downloads in recent years mean these very rarely happen in 2018. It’s a shame really, as it’d be a great place to meet other fans of the game you wanted to buy and form long-lasting online friendships.
Anyway, we digress. There is still a way to get access to FIFA 19 as soon as it’s released at midnight, but you may have to pay a little more for the game than if you were buying it from the likes of Amazon and GAME.
The solution? Buy the game from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store or Steam, depending on your platform of choice. The beauty of digital downloads is that they’re available at midnight upon release, with many of the biggest titles (FIFA included) available to pre-load before release, so you don’t even have to wait for it to download once the clock strikes midnight.
The catch is that listings on the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store are £10 more expensive than what’s on offer from Amazon, so you’ll have to decide if midnight access is worth the extra money.
If it is, what are you waiting for? Get that pre-load on now!
