Get FIFA 14 for free with every Xbox One pre-order says Microsoft

All Xbox One pre-orders will come bundled with a free copy of the upcoming football sim FIFA 14, Microsoft has confirmed during its pre-Gamescom 2013 press conference.

Making the announcement out in Berlin, Microsoft has revealed that in a bid to entice gamers away from the rival PS4, Xbox One pre-orders will come bundled with a digital copy of FIFA 14, complete with the newly confirmed FIFA 14 Ultimate Team Legends.

“All pre-order Xbox One consoles in launch countries in Europe (including the UK) this Christmas  will include a digital version of a blockbuster game, and the first of these bundles will be the best-selling sports franchise FIFA 14,” an official Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed.

Confirming that the deal will affect all Xbox One pre-orders and not just those placed following the announcement, they added: “All pre-orders to date and pre-orders from today will include FIFA 14, while stocks last.”

The Xbox One will be released this November priced £429. Although Xbox One pre-orders are still open, a number of retailers have suggested they can guarantee newly placed orders will be available in time for the console’s launch.

“Please note–due to high demand, orders placed for this Xbox One Standard Edition console from August 15 will be received after release date. We will ship orders as soon as we receive inventory,” Amazon has stated.

As well as bundling FIFA 14 free with every Xbox One advance order, Microsoft has revealed that it will sell a new Xbox 360 FIFA 14 bundle from the game’s release on September 27.

“From 27 September in Europe, fans will be able to purchase a FIFA 14 Xbox 360 bundle for £199 ERP, including a copy of FIFA 14 for Xbox 360,” the company stated.

With both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of the game, gamers will be able to play as the FIFA 14 Ultimate Legends Team. Pairing together some of the best players in history, the likes of Pele, Freddie Ljungberg, Ruud Gullit, Gary Lineker and Patrick Vieira will join forces in the Xbox exclusive team.

“We’re thrilled to bring legendary footballers to FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on Xbox. Only on Xbox will you be able to terrorise defences with a dream partnership of Messi with the legendary Pelé,” Matt Bilbey, EA Sports’ Senior Vice President and Group General Manager said.
