EA has officially released the floodgates during this year's pre-release hype train. On Friday, EA Sports announced a load of information about Madden NFL 19 including the release date, Hall of Fame Edition cover athlete, pre-order details and some of the game's new features.
Release Date Info
Madden NFL 19 will be released on August 10 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This year, the game is returning to PC. It hasn't appeared on that platform since Madden 08. This is the earliest release date for an annual release from the series since 2010 when Madden 11 hit retailers on August 10.
Customers who pre-order the Hall-of-Fame edition of Madden 19 (more details below) can receive the game on August 7 and EA Access members (Xbox One only) can get the game as early as August 2. That's more than a month before the actual NFL season begins on September 6 when the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles take on the Atlanta Falcons to start the 2018 campaign.
Hall-of-Famer Terrell Owens is the HOF Edition cover athlete. Owens was inducted into the Hall of Fame earlier this year so the timing couldn't be more appropriate. Owens revealed the news on his Twitter account Friday morning.
Believe it or not, Owens is the first to appear as an official cover athlete for the game in a Dallas Cowboys uniform. According to EA, there will be another athlete revealed as the Standard Edition cover athlete. New England Patriots cover athlete Tom Brady occupied both covers for Madden 18.
Here is a breakdown of the new features announced within this initial reveal:
Madden NFL 19, set to deliver more game-changing control to players than ever before. With Real Player Motion Technology, a new animation system that unlocks next level responsiveness and player personality, players will experience more precision as they run, cut, catch and celebrate on the gridiron this season. Along with more authentic ways to build an NFL roster, the ability to train and develop players, achieving NFL greatness never felt so personal.
Newly appointed Senior Producer Carlos Guerrero Sr. added this quote for context on the Real Player Motion tech as well as some intriguing news about the franchise mode:
“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,” said Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Producer on Madden NFL 19. “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.”
In Madden NFL 19 Franchise Mode, players can choose the offensive and defensive schemes that best 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 Custom Draft Class Creator where fans can create their own draft classes featuring players from the past and present for use in Franchise.
Madden NFL 19 Ultimate Team gives fans even more ways to choose their path to glory as new training tools let them develop their favorite 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.
