During the EA Play conference at E3 this year, Electronic Arts announced Madden 19.
Pittsburgh Steelers player JuJu Smith-Schuster and Madden champion Young Kiv came on stage to talk a bit about Madden 19. They then left the stage and a trailer played, showing star players like Peyton Manning.
The game promises to use "Real Player Motion Technology" to enhance the game's animations and personality. Also featured are "more authentic ways to build an NFL roster".
In addition, Madden 19 comes with all the bells and whistles you expect from the franchise. The game comes with updates to Franchise Mode as well as Ultimate Team, such as new tools to develop players in Ultimate Team. A new addition is the MUT Solo Battle system, a single-player mode where you can play games and put up scores on a leaderboard against other players.
The big news here is that, in addition to releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Madden 19 is making its return to PC. For the first time in over ten years, the football title is coming to PC, where it will make its debut on the Origin platform.
There are several pre-order versions of the game. People buying the Standard Edition get to choose an Elite Player and also receive five Gold Team Fantasy Packs. The Hall of Fame Edition nets you access to the game three days early and the ability to choose one of the Elite Hall of Fame Legends for Ultimate Team mode, a Training Pack and seven more Gold Team Fantasy Packs.
Madden 19 launches on August 10th of this year. However, Hall of Fame Edition players can play starting August 7th. Origin Access Premier members will be able to play the game eight full days early, on August 2nd.
