FIFA 14 Pre-Order Bonus Retailer Wide Involving Ultimate Team

Posted May 25th, 2013 at 4:15 pm


When the first pre-order bonus emerged for current-gen versions of FIFA 14 it seemed likely to be what was offered regardless of retailer rather than tying different something different to each.┬áThat has turned out to be the case at least in the US. Various retailers including Amazon, Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, and EA’s own Origin all will be including 24 Ultimate Team “Gold” packs to be distributed over a 24 week period.

In pushing Ultimate Team mode through pre-order incentives – and they’re utilizing this tactic in some form with all their titles now – EA Sports is attempting to both draw new players in and extend the period of time spent in the mode. It’s beneficial for the company to have consumers hang on to their games as long as possible keeping used copies off the market and increasing the opportunity for them to spend additional cash on any of the revenue-generating initiatives.

    Some of the bonuses are just regular gold packs and some are premium gold packs, so pay attention.

    I’m always anxious to see what new leagues they will be adding to FIFA – it seems the French announcer let it slip that they recorded thousands of new names because of the addition of the Hong Kong and Luxembourg leagues.
