FIFA 13's 'Ultimate Team' web app has returned online after users exploited it to gain an unfair advantage.

The 'Ultimate Team' web app was recently taken offline after "a small number of users" managed to gain unfair access to rare card packs.

Writing on Twitter, the EA Sports team said: "Yesterday, a very small number of users attempted to gain an unfair advantage on the FUT Web App.

"The #FUT13 Web App had to be taken offline to be stabilized and ensure a level playing field for all FUT users.

"Permanent bans for FIFA 13 FUT have been served to all users who attempted to gain an unfair advantage.

"Thanks for your patience while we create the best experience for all fans of FUT."

Last week it was revealed that FIFA 13's recently released demo was downloaded nearly 2 million times in three days.

Pre-orders, meanwhile, are up by 37% in Europe and 62% in North America. More than 875,000 copies have been reserved so far.

FIFA 13 will be released on September 28 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, 3DS, Vita, PS2, iPhone and iPad. Buying the EA Season Ticket will enable users to download the game from September 22.

The game will also be available as part of a PS3 super slim bundle.
