There have a good new for you!EA Sports has announced pre-order incentives for the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Edition of the game – including the option to have Lionel Messi on your team for your first five matches – when the game launches on 25th September in the UK.
This is part of a new loan player feature, according to the official website, although it doesn’t offer any more details on how that system will work.
After that, you’ll be able to unlock more players in the EA Sports Football Club Catalogue using experience points built up playing the game, which also sounds new, since Football Club previously only offered up coin boosts, squad slots and stuff like that as FUT unlocks.
Other pre-order incentives for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Edition include 40 gold packs over 40 weeks, which is an increase on the 24 packs bundle offered in previous years.
There are other incentives too – the Kiss the Wrist, Stand Tall and Flag Kick celebrations, plus an Adidas All-Star Team (presumably for use in Kick-Off mode), Adidas Predator Boot bundle and a Historic Kit bundle.
So that’s the Ultimate Team Edition pre-order goodies. If you want to go for the Standard Edition, though, then you’ll save some cash and still get 15 FUT packs by pre-ordering.
The pre-order deals should be available worldwide, although so far the details and links through to relevant retailers only work on the US FIFA site.
