Before purchasing the EA Season Ticket I wanted to know a couple of things, if anyone who has purchased it before could answer;
1. When you get the game 3 days earlier than release day, do you only get to play with "certain features" or can you access all areas including 'Ultimate Team'?
2. Whilst we'll most definitely have access to 'Career Mode'; when you save your games and data to your hard-drive, will you be able to access this early data when you purchase the real game on release day?
If anyone could answer these questions it'd be greatly appreciated, I'd hate to buy the Season Ticket only to have my Career Mode progress completely wiped.
You'll get to keep everything you've done; I'm not 100% sure that Ultimate Team will be switched on as they have to turn servers on for it, but I'm assuming it will since the season ticket tells you that you'll have access to the "full" game.
Also, although they say you get a downloadable version 3 days before release, the season ticket app on 360 says that the download will be available on Monday 24th, so you'll have it four days early.
I signed up yesterday because I buy enough packs on UT for the 20% to make a difference, and you also get the 24 free gold packs.
I can confirm UT will be playable with Season Ticket.
Imo its actually worth it this year as we'll get to play just a day after the Americans compared to the week after before with FIFA 12. This was my main problem last year as it kinda defeats the purpose of having a game early, especially online if others still get it a week before you. We'll receive it nearly a whole week early compared to other UK users whilst USA will get it 4 days early.
