It’s the sports game that keeps on giving. Another version of Madden Football is headed our way! Last week Electronic Arts Inc. announced EA SPORTS Madden NFL 19 which will hit consoles on August 10th with its “Standard Edition”. Eager armchair coaches can opt for the “Hall Of Fame Edition” which releases three days earlier on August 7th and features six-time Pro Bowl player and 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee, wide receiver, Terrell Owens on the cover. Fans can anticipate a second cover athlete for the “Standard Edition”. Experience all the tackles, touchdowns, and turnovers on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles this August!
EA SPORTS Madden NFL 19 promises to deliver more game-changing control to players than ever before. This version sees the inclusion of “Real Player Motion Technology”, a new animation system that unlocks next level responsiveness as players will experience more precision as they run, cut, catch, tackle and celebrate on the gridiron this season. Also included are more authentic ways to build an NFL roster including the ability to train and develop players.
Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Producer on Madden NFL 19 reveals how the development team worked with the fan-base on this Madden edition:
We’ve worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want – more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes. Real Player Motion technology combined with all new franchise-building tools like Positional Archetypes and the return of Custom Draft Classes are features that football fans will find fun and engaging. Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways.
Madden NFL 19 Gameplay Features
Gameplay features include a “Franchise Mode”, where players can choose the appropriate offensive and defensive schemes that fit their playstyle as they compete in single player and/or multiplayer seasons. Schemes are also linked to a new intuitive progression system – based on authentic positional archetypes – that give virtual coaches the tools and the big decision to either win now or build their squad for the future.
NFL fans will also have a top community-requested feature with the introduction of a “Custom Draft Class Creator” where fans can create their own draft classes featuring players from the past and present for use in their franchise.
Madden NFL 19‘s Ultimate Team mode gives fans even more ways to choose their path to glory as new training tools let them develop their favourite players their way via Player Upgrades. For players who want to prove they’re the best of the best in Solo Challenges, a new curated single-player experience called “MUT Solo Battles” provides a leaderboard reward system allowing fans to showcase their skills on the field while competing against other top Ultimate Team players.
