Hello,

Microsoft has released a new version of its app on phone that allows you to pre-download all games even before you buy.

Link Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.xboxone.smartglass.beta

If you're at Apple, it seems that the maximum number of users has been reached.

    @IamFrench think a few have posted about it already a couple of days ago but never hurts to raise awareness.

    Even though the title doesn't say it...I still read it as "Fifa 21 available to play now".

    Pre-download is available with Ultimate/Champions edition, but if you're planning to buy the standard edition it's not yet available!

    Sorry, I haven't seen.

    I guess it's an option that will probably be available everywhere in the next few months

    Last thing, if you buy FIFA21 you get 6,000 points "rewards". (Free 5€ = 5000 points for example)

    Doesn't seem to work for me, pressing that Install on Xbox One button and nothing happens.

    Do you have your account registered on multiple consoles? For me it didn't work, because I selected the first console that came up, but would have needed to scroll to the right and select the next one in line.

    Also I think both devices have to be in the same network and I don't know if remote features need to be enabled on the console.

    @vibemix881 It didn't work for me instantly, but check the "updates" tab on your console after pressing install on the app. I had FIFA21 waiting to be updated there (38.4GB).

    This is what I had to do as well. I think if you pre ordered it before the pre download was available you’ll have to do this also

    I was using the old Xbox app, downloaded Xbox beta and all good now.
  • ordered ultimate edition on 6th august, still pending on pre order on account:)
