EA has announced FIFA 13’s Ultimate Edition and the publisher calls it “the most extensive pre-order incentive in the history of the FIFA franchise.”
The Ultimate Edition provides access to 24 FIFA Ultimate Team gold packs, they’re worth about £15 in total and will be handed out at a rate of one per week. Each pack will offer a random assortment of players, contracts, stadiums, managers, staff, fitness, healing, balls, kits and badges. It will amount to 12 per pack, which will include one 75+ rated player and one rare item.
If that’s not enough for you, you can order the game from Amazon and you’ll receive the Football Club bonus — which is 10,000 EA Sports Football Club credits that you can redeem as in-game items like Virtual Pro attribute boosts and special celebrations.
Pre-order from UK-retailer GAME and you’ll get the Adidas All-Star Team bonus — a 23-man Adidas-branded team which includes Lionel Messi, Nani and Karim Benezema.
I have to admit, that’s a ton of incentives to pre-order a game that has virtually no competition when it comes to licensed footie games, no?
If you want to avail of FIFA 13’s Ultimate Edition, best that you pre-order as the special bundle will only be available on launch day. You can gamble and just wait in line and hope for the best, but if you’re a die-hard footie fan, chances are you won’t risk it.
FIFA 13 is due out for release later this year on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
