EA has announced Madden NFL 22 and it’s coming much sooner than may be expected. The game will be out worldwide on August 20th and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam, Origin, and Google Stadia. The announcement came alongside the official box art that features two Super Bown champions, MVPs: Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
The new version of the long-running series will feature a trio of brand new features:
Dynamic Gameday is powered by three new features: Gameday Atmosphere, Gameday Momentum, and Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI. Gameday Atmosphere connects players to their NFL fandom through the crowds, environments, and presentation elements that enhance and impact every game. New Gameday Momentum performance-based mechanics, including Home Field Advantage which provides a unique game condition tailored to each NFL team’s stadium atmosphere, swing momentum, bringing the tangible influence of momentum to life on the field. Lastly, Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI*, powered by real-world player data that will evolve throughout the season, changes AI behavior and team tendencies to make NFL superstars and the personality of each team more true-to-life.
Series fans will be pleased to hear that The Yard will be making a return in the ’22 version with an all-new single-player campaign, avatar progression, rewards, and vanity with the Face of the Franchise which is also returning.
