Free FIFA 14 Comes With Day One Edition Euro Xbox One Only

Free FIFA 14 Comes With Day One Edition Euro Xbox One Only

At this year's Gamecom Microsoft pulled a surprise announcement: that European Xbox One would include a free (digital) copy of the eagerly anticipated FIFA 14. Those who had already pre-ordered found themselves with a bit of a bonus- that their pre-order would be better value than it first appeared. Today however Microsoft have announced a caveat- that the offer is limited to the Day One Edition only.


Previously it had been stated that all European pre-orders would come with  EA Sport's megaselling footy sim.  Just last week, in fact:


So this is either yet another U-turn for the platform holder, or if we're feeling charitable possibly a mistake. Either way, if you live in Europe and you've pre-ordered the standard edition, well.. you're out of luck. So far MS have already had a change of heart on DRM, Kinect connection, launch countries, indie support and voice control, so hey.. it's not out of the question they'll change their mind again!

As well as FIFA, the box also contains an exclusive achievement and a "commemorative controller" so if you're a real fan you'll probably have plumped for the Day One edition anyway. The stock will be extremely limited so don't hang around.

The Xbox One will be available in North America and some parts of Europe in a yet to be confirmed date in November this year. No free game has been announced outside of Europe.

    [...] This year's game might not manage to be quite the biggest game of the year (a little game called GTA V might see to that) but it will still be a big deal.  Not only because they picked Gareth Bale to feature on the cover just before he became the world's most expensive footballer, but also because this will be the first FIFA to hit the next-gen consoles. Presumably GAME will only be presenting the current-gen versions, but it would be a bit much to expect otherwise. FIFA 14 will be released in  Europe for current platforms on September 27th, and will hit Xbox One and PS4 on their launch dates (November 22nd and 29th respectively). FIFA 14 will be also included with every Day One Edition Xbox One preordered in Europe. [...]
