EA Sports have announced a new program for fans called EA Sports Season Ticket, a plan that'll provide premium benefits across five participating EA Sports titles. Goods include things like discounted DLC, early access via full digital download and premium web content, all for an annual fee of $24.99 or 2000 Microsoft Points.
The program is available to both PS3 and Xbox 360 users. GameStop will be introducing it through their PowerUp Rewards program.
"EA SPORTS Season Ticket is an exciting program for our core fans "“ it lets our biggest fans play earlier, play more and play better than anyone else," said EA Sports President Peter Moore. "EA SPORTS Season Ticket is an important step in our vision for transforming how deeply fans connect with the sports games they love through digital products and services. We're excited to continue evolving EA SPORTS Season Ticket as we listen to what consumers want most in their gaming experiences."
Listed below are the benefits for subscribers of EA Sports Season Ticket,
Early Full-Game Digital Access: Three days before a game's scheduled release, fans will be able to download and play the full version of all five participating titles on Xbox 360 and PS3â„¢**. The digitally downloaded game will time out when the game is available at retail and consumers have the option to purchase the same full game on disc at retail. EA SPORTS Season Ticket subscribers can transfer all achievements earned during the three-day download period to the purchased disc, resulting in an early edge over the competition.
Discounted Downloadable Content: Subscribers will get a 20-percent discount on all available downloadable content for participating EA SPORTS titles. Downloadable content, which enhances and refreshes the core game experience, includes such items as Ultimate Team packs, accelerator packs and gear upgrades.
Free Premium Web Content: Premium web content extends the game experience beyond the console to a web browser. All participating titles will feature premium web content that will be free to EA SPORTS Season Ticket members beginning with the premium Creation Center packs for FIFA Soccer 12. These packs provide a deeper set of customization tools and abilities within Creation Center to build your own teams and tournaments, and will be available to the consumer until the membership to the program has expired.
Membership Recognition: Subscribers are easily identifiable with an exclusive membership recognition badge displayed both in-game and on their EASPORTS.com profile.
