Introducing FIFA Points
We are excited to bring the FIFA Points currency to consoles in FIFA 13: Ultimate Team. We initially introduced this currency for PC users in Ultimate Team 12, and believe it’s a big win for our fans for FIFA 13, in many ways.
So starting with FIFA 13, packs in Ultimate Team will now be purchased with either coins or FIFA Points. FIFA Points are sold in bundles and can be purchased in the Ultimate Team console store with Microsoft Points or your PSN Wallet.
Why have we made the switch to FIFA Points? Here are three great reasons:
Improved Pack Purchase Flow
They simplify the purchase process for users who buy multiple packs. In FIFA 12 Ultimate Team, users had to click through two or three Xbox Live Marketplace and PSN menu windows every time they purchased a single pack. Since FIFA Points are directly tied to the Ultimate Team ecosystem, you can buy multiple packs with a FIFA Point bundle faster and more efficiently.
Web App Pack Purchases via Microsoft Points & PSN Wallet
Based on fan feedback, we know that you want the ability to purchase Packs on the Ultimate Team Web App, but that wasn’t possible in Ultimate Team 12..
FIFA Points solves this issue: after buying FIFA Points on your console with your respective currency, they will be available to spend in the Web App and future extensions of the Ultimate Team ecosystem.
Purchasing larger FIFA Point bundles gives you a bigger discount and more bonus points. This offers great value to users who buy several packs in Ultimate Team. For example: buying a 2,200 FIFA Point bundle will give you 200 bonus FIFA Points, which is enough to buy two extra Gold packs.
If you're and EA SPORTS Season Ticket subscriber, your 20% discount is applied to the price of FIFA Point bundles, which saves you even more.
We hope you enjoy the new changes we’ve brought to FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with FIFA Points. For more information on Ultimate Team, be sure to follow us on Twitter and LIKE us on Facebook.
