EA have announced FIFA 13 Ultimate Edition, a premium package that will supply fans with 24 FIFA Ultimate Team gold packs to get their online season off to a flier.

In the interest of fair play users who purchase the Ultimate Edition will receive one gold pack per week for 24 weeks — worth £15 in real money — to help build their own ultimate team of football superstars. Each gold pack is a mix of 12 items, including players, contracts, stadiums, managers, staff, fitness, healing, balls, kits, and badges. Gold Packs consist of players rated 75+ in-game, and include one rare item, such as enhanced player attributes, longer contracts, and the most coveted players.

Elsewhere FIFA 13 pre-order incentives from the likes of Amazon.co.uk and GAME offer EA Sports Football Club benefits (in the shape of in-game credits), or an exclusive Adidas All-Star Team featuring Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi, to fans who pre-order FIFA 13 or FIFA 13 Ultimate Edition on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

The FIFA 13 Ultimate Edition is available only through pre-order or on 28 September.
