EA Sports' Season Ticket program is coming back for another year. And it provides a far greater value than last year's debut offering.

As before, the $25 Season Ticket grants you early access to this season's games. You'll be able to download an early version of Madden, NHL, FIFA, Tiger Woods, and NCAA three days before its retail release via PlayStation Network or Xbox Live. Note that while these games are fully playable for three days with the membership, you'll have to actually buy a copy if you want to play beyond the trial period.

This year, the Season Ticket also offers free access to DLC across all five mentioned titles. EA Sports claims that they have a combined value of over $100. Here's what's on offer:

Madden NFL 13

  • Early access date – Friday, August 24, 2012 (6:00pm EST)
  • Included paid DLC – One Legendary and 24 Pro Madden packs – one per week for 24 consecutive weeks - for use in Madden Ultimate Team (over $30 in value)

NHL 13

  • Early access date – Friday, September 7, 2012 (6:00pm EST)
  • Included paid DLC – 24 NHL Gold Premium packs for use in Hockey Ultimate Team – one per week for 24 consecutive weeks (over $30 in value)

FIFA Soccer 13

  • Early access date – Friday, September 21, 2012 (6:00pm EST)
  • Included paid DLC – 24 FIFA Ultimate Team Gold Premium packs —one per week for 24 consecutive weeks—to help build an ultimate team of soccer superstars (over $30 in value)

Benefits for Tiger Woods and NCAA Football will be revealed later. In addition to early access and included DLC, Season Ticket holders will also get a 20% discount on any other PDLC they purchase. Considering each game promises over $30 worth of DLC in this year's Season Ticket, it may be wise for passionate fans of even just a single game to invest in EA's $25 offering.

      If I remeber correctly... the DLC you get from NHL is about the same as if you buy the collectors edition... but if you got both you would get a ton of HUT packs. I didnt really care for the HUT in NHL. I'm not really sure if this is worth it...... early access doesnt really do anything for me as I would still have to wait for my friends to get the games to play them online...

        The fact that you can pay real money for cards and cards expire turned me right the fuck off it

      What's more likely this year: an NHL game on the PC or the NHL locking out?

      It should also be noted that the MUT packs are distributed weekly, and will expire. So if you are not going to login for all those weeks in a row, you kinda lose some of your value there.
