FIFA 13 arrives in UK stores on September 28th and EA is giving players the chance to get a bunch of free FIFA Ultimate Team player packs with the game.
We take a look at all the special pre-order deals on FIFA 13 and explain how you can get each one.
Free Ultimate Team packs in FIFA 13
Those who pre-order the FIFA 13 Ultimate Edition will get 24 Ultimate Team gold packs. So if you pre-order the game and buy the Ultimate Edition you’ll get one Gold Pack each week for 24 weeks – that’s worth over £15.
Each gold pack is a mix of 12 items, including players, contracts, stadiums, managers, staff, fitness, healing, balls, kits and badges. Gold Packs contain players rated 75+ of course, and include one rare item, such as a top player, attributes or better contracts.
Adidas All-Star Team
To get this you’ll need to reserve FIFA 13 from GAME. You’ll get 23 big players such as Messi, Nani and Benzema. However, this is not for FIFA Ultimate Team. They can instead be used in the Match Day Exhibition Matches mode, and you can choose this squad in the Support Your Club mode. Get this bonus and you’ll also be able to use certain Adidas kits in Online Pro Clubs.
EA Sports Football Club pre-order bonus
Pre-order FIFA 13 on Amazon and you’ll get 10,000 EA Sports Football Club credits which can be used to buy in-game items like new celebrations, Virtual Pro attribute boosts, extra matches in Head-to-Head Seasons mode, and other extras. Football Club lets players take part in challenges based on real life footballing events.
So there you have it. EA has ramped up the extras to try and get you all to pre-order FIFA 13 well in advance of its release date. Will it be worth it? Time will tell. But in the meantime, you can check out this FIFA 13 trailer and read our FIFA 12 content below:
