The wait for FIFA 13 is almost over. If you live in the US, you can already pick up EA’s latest version of the popular football game, but for everyone else – it is all about the midnight launches which will be taking place on Thursday evening in the UK.
If you usually queue up to pick up your copy of FIFA at midnight, you’ll probably already have the retailer of choice that you are planning to use. GAME has now released official details of their plans to hold a FIFA 13 midnight launch, confirming a vast list of retail stores across the UK that will be holding special events especially for FIFA.
Not every GAME store is listed, so be sure to check with the official list of stores here so that you don’t waste your time in heading out, only to find that the store is closed. As detailed on GAME’s website, there are going to be several versions of FIFA 13 to choose from, including a special GAME only bonus incentive as well.
For £42.99, you can pick up the standard edition of FIFA, or for 99p if you trade in a selected game here. If you pay a little bit more, you can pick up the FIFA 13 Ultimate Edition for £48.99 which comes with 24 Gold packs for Ultimate Team. As for the GAME bonus, both packs will come with access to the Adidas All-Star team, which will let you play with stars such as Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema on the same team.
If you really fancy splashing out, you can even opt for the new PS3 Super Slim FIFA 13 bundle, which is £249.99 for a 500GB console – although we wouldn’t really recommend it with the Sony PS4 just around the corner.
So there we have it, check the list of midnight launch stores and let us know which one you are planning to go to. Have you already spotted a better deal at a supermarket?
