This is a big week for FUT! In the podcast we reveal details such as what kind of packs you will receive as a returning user and we briefly talk about some of the new features in FUT 12. This week we also have the very last TOTW for FUT 11 and the very first, for one day only, TOTW for FUT 12. The two teams are not exactly the same so read one to find which two players were switched into the FUT 12 TOTW.
Listen to find out about the very first Team of the Week for FUT 12 and the last Team of the Week for FUT 11 (hint: they are not exactly the same). We also talk about some of the new features in FUT 12 and we will give you more details on the September 20th Web App early start.
