Here's some good news for all FIFA and football fans. EA is set to give away free Ultimate Team packs at a special FUT 15 event this week. The free promotion comes in the wake of EA celebrating FIFA Ultimate Team's sixth birthday.
As reported, the company is giving away free packs to all FUT 15 players between March 23 (Monday) and March 29 (Sunday). Fans are set to receive untradeable Gold Rare packs in their account, one heading in for each day.
"As a thank you for your support, we'll be giving every FUT fan one free pack every day," an EA statement reads. "The FUT Birthday Cup – play at least one match in the FUT Birthday Cup for a chance to win rare tradable In-Forms from previous Team of Weeks! (Winners will be chosen at later date)," while also adding that new pack offers will be available every day.
In order to get the new rare gold packs, fans will just need to open their FUT store on their PC or console. And accordingly, the new packs will be posted in the 'My Packs' section, with each pack including 12 rare cards, although you cannot sell them.
It is also to be noted that the untradeable Mega Pack available for all FUT fans will only lasts 24-hour and have to be claimed within that time, since EA has decided against carrying them over for future reference.
Alongside, EA has also introduced a tournament, named The FUT Birthday Cup, to celebrate the sixth FUT anniversary. The tournament has already begun and will continue until 29 March. It requires players to use five-star rated teams with complete chemistry. Also note that winning the online tournament gets you 15,000 coins, while the first victory also provides a 50k Rare Players pack.
In other news, there is a new FIFA 15 PC update that's been pushed out for Ultimate Team to address stability issues caused by the previous March patch. The changes were made going by the feedback the company got on Facebook, Twitter, and other official EA Sports channels.
