FIFA 12’s official release date is next Friday, September 30th. However, if you have an Xbox 360 and are a European EA Season Ticket Holder you will get early access to the next installation in the FIFA franchise tomorrow.
“Season Ticket holders will be able to download FIFA 12 from 23th September at 6pm ET in North America on PS3 and Xbox 360, and in Europe on Xbox 360 from 6pm CET on 24 September.”
Yes, both North American Xbox 360 & PS3 owners also get this deal. Now, I don’t know why European PS3 owners miss out.
Once downloaded, EA Season Pass holders will have access to the first Football Club challenge where you control Chelsea while 3-1 down against Manchester United. The goal is to get at least a draw in the match. This Challenge will be exclusive to EA Season Pass holders.
However if you don’t have a Season Pass or you own a PS3 in Europe, the release date is still 30th September 2011.
