The wait is nearly over for the most highly-anticipated games release in virtual memory as the FIFA13 juggernaut revs up and heads for your console.

To whet our appetites further – and to stop our thumbs from twitching – EA Sports have announced today that the official demo is now available around the world through download for the PlayStation3, Xbox360, and PC.

Play as Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan or Borussia Dortmund in the demo and experience EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day, a new feature that will drive the deepest and most meaningful connection yet between a videogame and the real world of sport ever achieved.

Personally, as a blue, I’m going to pre-empt the forthcoming City/Dortmund Champion’s League clash, nobble Gotze early doors and victory will be mine. Either that or my experimental 3-4-4 formation will come badly unstuck.

FIFA 13 captures the unpredictability of real-world football, with no two matches ever the same. The game features breakthrough gameplay innovations such as FIFA 13 First Touch Control and the Player Impact Engine that create a true battle for possession across the entire pitch, and features like Complete Dribbling and Attacking Intelligence that deliver freedom and creativity in attack.
