FIFA 12 is set to be unleashed in the autumn, and even though this isn’t a surprise to anyone, what is surprising is the fact that it is due to hit the shelves on the 30th of September, 2011.
Whether this date is officially the ‘final’ date or a current placeholder by EA, it is yet to be confirmed. As in previous years, a release date will more or less be confirmed in July. However, fans of the franchise will undoubtedly be eager to get their hands on the biggest iteration since FIFA 2008.
Sporting the character animation engine which has been used within the eagerly awaited Battlefield 3, the promotional material just proves how far this franchise has come since taking over the reigns from Konami.
Never mind your standard boxed version of FIFA; EA has announced a more mouthwatering edition which will be heading your way. Ever heard of the Ultimate Edition? Nope?
Let me give you a little more information to digest. EA announced the Ultimate Edition, which includes 24 Gold Card Pack downloads for the next 6 months. Yes, that’s half a year! 180 days!
Each month you’ll be able to redeem 4 Gold Card Packs in the Ultimate Team mode. The RRP for the Ultimate Edition currently is £54.99 – no doubt there will be other establishments looking to offer this product with a cheaper price tag come nearer the time of release.
I, for one, cannot wait to splash my cash on this iteration. It’s definitely in the game!
