SEE YOUR LOOT - New preview packs are here for a limited time
Starting Friday, 18 June at 16:00 UTC (09:00 PT) and running for the remainder of the Festival of FUTball, we’re introducing a new way for you to access Ultimate Team content; Preview Packs. These packs will allow you to see all the specific Items contained within them before you need to make a decision on whether you want to buy the pack with FUT Coins or FIFA Points. Preview Packs will be the only pack type available in the FUT Store during this time, at the end of the campaign other pack types will return.
Now let’s cover how these new Preview Packs will work during the Festival of FUTball and how interacting with them will look in the game.

Festival of FUTball Preview Packs

For the remainder of the Festival of FUTball campaign, all FUT Packs available for purchase in the FUT Store will be Preview Packs. While the names of the Packs will likely be familiar, they will work differently to the Packs you’ve experienced before. Preview Packs will allow you to see the specific Items in that Pack, before you decide if you want to buy the Pack.
Packs not directly obtained from the FUT Store, such as rewards from Division Rivals, or earned from an Objective or SBC will not be Preview Packs, and will continue to function as they do now.

In Game Flow

If you choose to buy a Preview Pack, with either FUT Coins or FIFA Points, you will go through a new in-game flow. This flow will show you the specific Items that are within the pack before you are given the option to obtain it.
Let’s take a closer look at how this will work in-game by looking at the different flows you will see when engaging with a Festival of FUTball Preview Pack.
