FC 25 Editions

FC 25 Editions

EA Sports has consistently released FIFA titles annually since 1993. However, it wasn’t until FIFA 18 that Electronic Arts opted to introduce distinct editions with varied content for the same game. The objective was to craft a specific product that players could resonate with, enhance engagement, and generate additional revenue.

With the exception of the Nintendo Switch, FC 25 is available in two editions: Standard and Ultimate. These editions feature different release dates, prices, and pre-order offers.

    FC 24 Ultimate Edition

    Ultimate Edition Offers
    FC Points is the only offer that is not exclusive to pre-orders. Except for the Hero item (November 27), all other offers are delivered as soon as you play Ultimate Team for the first time on your console/PC.

    FC 24 Ultimate Edition includes all Standard Edition offers PLUS:

    • Early Access
      You don’t have to wait until the launch date to start playing FC 24. The Ultimate Edition unlocks your game seven days earlier, so you can play the full game at midnight without any restriction.

    • TOTW 1 Player Item
      The first Team of the Week is released before the early access start. From the pool of those 23 players, it will be randomly assigned to your UT club an untradeable item.

    • FC Points
      There is no better way to boost your first team than opening a few UT packs. Unfortunately, the best promo packs are only released later but the 4,600 FC Points are still very useful at this point of the season.

    • Nike Offers
      As Ultimate Edition owner, you receive access to the Nike Ultimate Team campaign, an exclusive kit and a Nike Loan player for 24 Ultimate Team matches.

    • Untradeable Hero Item

    Release Date

    Release Dates

    For Football Club enthusiasts, the standout feature of the priciest edition is the early access privilege. Unlike purchasers of the Standard Edition, who must wait until midnight on the launch date, Ultimate Edition owners gain the advantage of kicking off their gaming experience seven days ahead.

    The FC 25 trial initiates four days prior to the official release date, but gameplay is restricted to a maximum of 10 hours, which may not suffice for many players. Opting for the Ultimate Edition provides unrestricted access to the full game.

    FC 25 Editions Prices

    If the price were identical, the Ultimate Edition would undoubtedly be the preferred choice. It’s logical, considering it encompasses all the offerings of the standard edition and adds several more. This is why it comes with a higher price tag.

    FC 25 Prices fluctuate based on the edition and platform. Variations can also arise depending on the timing of your purchase, your region, the store, as well as any ongoing promotions or discounts.
