FIFA 22: how do Amazon Prime Gaming packs work, how to link your EA account - and what loot is included?
Amazon Prime’s Gaming packs are back in FIFA 22 - but how do players access their exclusive rewards?
and live on Freeview channel 276
Every month, Amazon Prime subscribers are gifted an exclusive content pack to be opened within Fifa 22, containing rare players that can be utilised in Ultimate Team squads, as well as exciting items and consumables.
But just how do the packs work? How do you redeem them, and how do you sign up to Prime Gaming?
Here is everything you need to know.
Do I need an Amazon Prime membership to claim the packs?
Yes, you will need an Amazon Prime membership to access Prime Gaming content.
If you are not already an Amazon Prime member, head to this link where you can click the ‘Try Prime’ button to sign up for a free 30-day trial.
If you’re already a Prime member, sign in to your Prime account and head to Prime Gaming.
From there, you’ll be able to click ‘Claim Now’ to begin the claim process.
It’s worth bearing in mind that if you do sign up for a free 30-day trial, you will stop receiving content once that expires; you need to be a Prime member to continue to receive content.
How do I open the packs in game?
The Prime Gaming packs are not only available to Fifa players on PC. Players on Xbox and PlayStation consoles can also take advantage of the offer.
Unfortunately, those playing the game’s ‘Legacy Edition’ on Nintendo Switch will not be able to reap the rewards.
After beginning the claim process, you'll be redirected to Electronic Arts to link your Amazon account with either your Xbox Live or PlayStation Network account.
Once linking is complete, you’ll be redirected back to Prime Gaming to complete your claim.
Following that step, you’ll need to launch the game and select the Ultimate Team mode. Once you are on the Ultimate Team home page, navigate to the Store and then select ‘My Packs’.
Your Prime Gaming pack should be sitting in your My Packs section.
Those who play the game across multiple platforms should be mindful that your content will be available only on the first platform you log into with your linked EA account.
The offer can also only be applied once to a single EA account.
When will future packs be released?
According to fifauteam.com, the release dates of the next few packs have been revealed.
December’s Prime Gaming pack will be released at 6pm UK time on Monday 20 December, while January 2022’s pack will be available at 6pm on Monday 24 January.
What will be included in those packs is yet to be revealed, and it’s likely we won’t find out what rewards are up for grabs until the packs are actually released.
What’s included in November 2021’s pack?
November’s Prime Gaming pack was made available on Monday 22 November, and includes some tantalising content.
The star of the show is Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be available to Ultimate Team players on a seven-match loan.
Aside from that blockbuster player, the pack also includes seven Gold Rare Player Items, two 81+ Player Picks, and 12 Rare Consumable Items.
