EA Sports has announced that they are offering a $24.99 Season Ticket plan with three days of early access to NHL HockeyFIFA Soccer, Tiger Woods PGA Tour and NCAA Football as well as a 20 percent discount on all DLC. There will also be exclusive online recognition on easports.com profiles and premium web content like Creation Center packs for FIFA Soccer.

“We’ve been looking at ways to enhance the experience that our core consumer has with our games, and we started to talk to core consumers in focus groups and a bunch of online marketing [to find out what they want],” said EA Sports President Peter Moore noting that early access to games was “far and away” the most requested feature.

Available to Xbox Live and PSN users, they will have to download the game for the early access with all of the achievements and progress transferring over to the full retail game when it releases. “The game will be made available commencing at 6 p.m. on the fourth day, the night before the three days start; we recognize that in this country, not everyone has fiber to the home,” Moore commented. “We want to make sure to give you ample time to download it. It’s going to be a multi-hour download, but right now there’s no other way around that if you want early access.”
