Microsoft’s console gamers have a lot to look forward to when EA’s next NFL sim title arrives.
Madden 21 is approaching over the horizon.
With a revealed, though unconfirmed, release date and some key info announced about next gen, what does the game have in store for Xbox gamers?
Keep reading for more details.
Madden 21 Xbox One release date
While EA are yet to confirm a release date, the description on a delayed YouTube trailer has given the game away.
Fans can expect the game to arrive on 28 August! Again, this is unconfirmed but we can expect EA to give us a firm date during EA Play.
Cover star and Editions
Similarly to the accidental reveal of a release date, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson let slip he will be on the Madden 21 cover in an interview.
It’s not a surprise that the reigning MVP takes over the cover from Patrick Mahomes.
With his presence, and also shown in the delayed video, comes an MVP Edition.
The cost of the extra edition isn’t known yet. They are usually in the range of £10-15/$15-20 more than the standard edition, but do come with three days early access.
Madden 21 on Xbox Series X
Xbox fans are ahead of the competition when it comes to next-gen news.
Thanks to the Inside Xbox stream we know that Madden 21 is optimized for the Xbox Series X and will have Smart Delivery, meaning if you buy a copy at launch you can upgrade to a Series X copy for free.
Fans were expecting to see a true gameplay trailer at the start of June. For obvious reasons EA delayed it.
That puts EA Play, on 18 June, as the most obvious time for us to finally see just what Madden 21 has in store for us.
