FIFA 20: One of the cheapest ways to get EA Sports' landmark game

Will Virgil van Dijk be one of the FIFA greats?

As September rolls around, the clock is ticking down towards the annual release of one of the best sport games on the market.

FIFA 20 will hit shelves on September 27, with early access from September 24, as football and esports fans brace themselves for the major release.

As usual, the launch will have fans clamouring for answers to the usual questions; Who will the best players be? What are the newest features?

But for fans itching to get their hands on a copy of the best seller, when is the best time to buy it? Unsurprisingly, not at launch.

According to PriceSpy, an agonising 84-day wait could be on the horizon for the bargain-hunting fans of the EA Sports series.

Is it worth prolonging the purchase, though?

The research reveals drastic price drops from opening day prices as high as £59.99, to just £23.99 a few short months later.

Vanessa Katsapa, country manager of UK and Ireland at PriceSpy, said: “FIFA is one of the most anticipated game franchises of the year. But eager fans in search of a bargain could be better off waiting for the game to fall in price.

“Patient gamers who can wait until Cyber Weekend or Christmas could make substantial savings on the game.

“To score a bargain, fans can simply track the game’s price and get alerts from PriceSpy when the price drops.”
