The downloadable add-on “recreates the passion and rivalry” of this summer’s tournament, EA says, and includes all 53 UEFA member national teams, all eight official stadiums “and all the pageantry and atmosphere of one of the largest and most-watched sporting events on the planet.”
It’ll set Xbox 360 users back 1,800 Microsoft Points, and PS3 users £15.99. A £15.99 price-point is also expected for the PC version.
EA Sports Season Pass holders will also be entitled to a 20% discount, but unlike other titles they won’t receive early access.
UEFA Euro 2012 is the first tournament-specific FIFA to launch as a download title. Previously, each game had released as a standalone title.
“We felt this was the best way to extend that experience and deliver fresh new content to our fans,” EA said, explaining why it had chosen to release UEFA Euro 2012 as a download-only expansion.
“We expect that some fans who may not have FIFA 12 will want to play Euro 2012 and therefore purchase both, but the bigger opportunity for us is to offer our loyal and passionate FIFA fans new content.”
2012 is looking likely to be FIFA’s busiest season in years.
EA Sports’ latest FIFA title, FIFA Street, launched last month, while FIFA 13 is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
