EA Sports has announced that its UEFA Euro 2012 football game will be available exclusively as downloadable content for last year's FIFA 2012.

With every major football (or soccer, depending on your persuasion) tournament comes a tie-in game from EA Sports, and this year's Euro 2012 competition in Poland and Ukraine is no different. Well, it's actually quite a bit different — instead of being its own packaged game sold at retail for full-price, EA has announced that UEFA Euro 2012 will be available exclusively as downloadable content for last year's FIFA 2012.

As previous European Championship and World Cup games tended to be near-identical to the previous FIFA titles but with less teams and modes to choose from, we think this is a great move from EA that doesn't come a moment too soon. It also neatly sidesteps the recent issues EA has had with GAME in the UK, sure to be a major market for the release. UEFA Euro 2012 will be out on April 24th in the UK for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, costing £15.99 ($25.43), 1800 Microsoft Points, and 2500 FIFA points respectively.
