Microsoft has clarified that only European preorders of the Xbox One Day One Edition will be eligible for a free copy of FIFA 14 when the console launches this November.
During Gamescom 2013, Microsoft announced that all Xbox One preorders in Europe would receive a download code for the latest iteration of EA's long-running football series.
Microsoft has not confirmed whether a similar promotion will take place in North America.
"Had a few questions on this so wanted to clarify: FIFA 14 will only come free with Xbox One Day One Edition pre-orders, while stocks last," tweeted Xbox community manager Graeme "AceyBongos" Boyd earlier today.
"If you have already preordered a Day One Edition Xbox One, or preorder one from now on while stocks last, you will receive FIFA 14 free."
Amazon UK has currently run out of its current allocation of Day One Edition preorders, but other major retailers still have stock. The Day One Edition of the Xbox One comes with a custom commemorative controller and a code to unlock an exclusive Day One Achievement.
"Another important note--the Day One Edition Xbox One FIFA 14 offer is valid in Europe, this holiday, while stocks last," added Boyd.
The Xbox One will launch this November for £429/€499/$499.
