EA Sports has detailed its returning Season Ticket initiative for its line-up of 2013 season titles, slapping a price tag on the programme that grants three-day early access to the entire stable of EA Sports titles as well as a slew of DLC and discounts on paid DLC.

The EA Sports Season Ticket grants 12 months of benefits, such as early access to participating titles, 20% off additional paid DLC and over $100 worth of paid DLC, including the following:

  • 1 Legendary Pack and 24 Pro Madden Packs (over $30 in value)
  • 24 NHL Premium Gold Packs (over $30 in value)
  • 24 FIFA Premium Gold Packs (over $30 in value)
  • Tiger Woods 14 content to be announced
  • NCAA 14 content to be announced

Of course to reap the full benefits of the EA Sports Season Ticket, you'll be someone who plays a lot of EA Sports titles and participating games include Madden NFL 13 due to release on August 28th (early access on August 24th), NHL 13 launching on September 11th (early access on September 7th) and FIFA 13, which is out on September 25th (early access on September 21st).

The EA Sports Season Ticket will cost 2000 Microsoft Points.

Like BF3 premium, if someone plans on buying all the DLC then why the hell not pay out sooner and get a discount? Simple stuff.

hmmmm im not too sure yet, so if i buy the ultimate edition of fifa 13 which comes with 24 premium packs over 6 months do i still get these 24 packs aswell???

will any tiger woods dlc be free? ive never brought any tiger woods dlc for the few games ive played

dont play madden so that doesnt intrigue me at all

still dont sound bad if you play all of the games though but im just not upto scratch with the ea season ticket though

Tiger Woods DLC is usually courses and they are not normally free. I assume that the stat boosters arent included in the TW DLC

@11 I bought the season pass as I was planning on getting madden and FIFA anyway. But I was thinking exactly the same thing about the FIFA ultimate edition, will be interesting to know if you end up with 48 packs in total.

Just for info purposes for anyone getting madden and has the season pass...the 1 legendary pack and 24 pro madden packs are being released 1 per week and not all in one hit.

@14 that's not true what about the euro 2012 dlc for fifa 12, im sure that people would prefer to pay 1600msp rather than 40 quid for another game.
but i think im going to avoid this because i only occassionally play fifa, but not very often

No doubt it's a good deal for any Sports aficionado but overall I hate this season pass stuff because due to it there are more cheap dlcs and are released expensive (individually) so they can show the benefit of purchasing such passes

EA can take their season passes and everything they develop and shove it up their asses. Worst customer service and just about as greedy as Microsoft. The only reason we put up with Microsoft's bs is because they made the console we need to play on.

The fact that they're announcing DLC for yearly release games is bad enough... I'm not willing to pay 70 or more dollars for sports games. I'll just pay 0.

No thanks. I might buy Madden this year (haven't played one in years). If they kept the servers open I would probably go for this, but they don't.

This is really only for the people who play EA sports titles exclusively.

Oh no, i think x360a are going to sue me for taking what they said and changing it slightly, but leaving the basic idea in the text!

I'm like the majority who hate a lot of what EA do because it seems to be every possible way of squeezing a dollar from the consumer, but when you are paying at what looks to be around half the cost of the game itself, you are receiving triple the amount in DLC.

You also get a 3 day advantage of playing the game online and if you are into that sort of thing, creating videos for achievements or just general play.

For me, it would work well because I can make money from those videos, just like a lot of other gamers can. If it pays itself off, then why not?

@10 - Yes they will both be given out. If you buy the premium edition of Fifa then you get 24 gold packs, if you buy this season pass then you get 24 premium gold packs (those double-sized ones) So I'd imagine they'd give you both every month.

Might be worth ringing up EA to confirm though

@20 jesus calm down, i was only stating a fact and im pretty sure that everyone would agree that it is better value than paying for another game.

The probability is that we will receive these packs exactly the same as the ultimate edition gold packs.

So, 1 GOLD and 1 GOLD PREMIUM pack every week until the 24 packs are used.

One of my biggest problems with the FIFA 12 system was that you had no chance of obtaining a TOTW card for any other week than the last of the month unless you saved the packs. I suppose it's more about will power than anything, but you always had that urge.

Heres the big question though, who's going to save up all their packs until TOTY/ Ballon D'or time? :p

Im not sure whether or not to buy this.

I'd only use the FIFA exclusives but ive been thinking now for years whether to get another NHL/Madden/Tiger Woods game since i had the lot in 2005. I dont really know.

But for £64 of content ($100) is pretty good to say its 2000 points and thats only £17 ($25) so thats pretty good if your an American haha.

I learnt my lesson with Tiger Woods, where they charge you for same course DLC that you had bought the year before and the year before that and so on. They also have no interest in fixing glitches or broken games and I'm pretty sure everyone has finally wised up to the fact they keep turning out the same game every year with one or two slight tweeks and charge you top dollar for it.

@30 just read the small print on ea website it says each pack expires 7 days after it was issued so no chance of saving them all! If people are gonna buy the season ticket then they should at least give you the packs in one go.
