FIFA 17 Thanksgiving Offers

This year, it is easy to say that Christmas has come early. Instead of waiting for the big holiday season towards the end of December, sellers have thrown some of the most unbelievable deals during Black Friday sales. If you are looking forward to buy gadgets, electronic goods, game consoles and games, there’s no better time than now. Steam has already started its special deals and so did GOG, Gamestop among everyone else. Ubisoft is giving away so many goodies to commemorate their 30 years of success.

Electronic Arts is not going to be left behind. The company has already opened their Black Friday sales on the Origin store on PC, PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Games including Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefield 1, Need for Speed, The Sims 4 and many others are heavily discounted. The premium editions are much cheaper now. Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 bundle is easily the best of them all.

Apart from spending your hard earned money on these deals, there is also the option to enjoy some free games and make the most out of this fun filled weekend. FIFA 17 is going to go free for this weekend from November 24 onwards. The deal begins at 10:00 AM Pacific time and will be open till November 27th 11:59 PM Pacific Time. You can play the game with a friend or over the web with others for three whole days. The deal is open on Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles.


There are some shortcomings though because Xbox One players will be able to enjoy FIFA 17 for only 10 hours during this free weekend. PS4 players may be able to play more as EA didn’t announce any restrictions for them. Besides, some in-game features will be disabled, The Journey Game mode will be limited to a small part to explore and Ultimate team restrictions. Despite all these, the game is still fun to play at any point and you can easily find whether you love it or not with 10 hours of gameplay. Progress made in the story mode will be carried forward if you buy the game during Black Friday sales. Pricing could vary from one dealer to another but there’s always EA discounts to go for.
