FIFA 11 Ultimate Team | Weekly Update

It’s official, FUT 12 is going to be on disc!

This means that you will be able to play it as soon as FIFA 12 is released (Sept 27th in North America and Sept 30th everywhere else).

If you played FUT 11 or any other previous version you will get to play even earlier. On September 20th returning FUT gamers will get access to the FUT 12 Web App. They will have an opportunity to get started on their squads with some gifts from us. We’ll have more details on what the gifts are a little bit later.

In the coming weeks we will release more information on some pretty cool new features of FUT 12 but until then you can see the first two screenshots of the new game on our official Facebook page at .
