Madden 22 Face of the Franchise is a narrative story mode that covers your player's journey to the NFL.

So there will be a lot, and we mean A LOT of cutscenes.

HOLD TO SKIP: You might find yourself skipping a lot in FOTF

It's up to you whether you watch every cutscene in full or choose to skip them, but you won't receive any negative penalties for not watching them.

It should be noted that cutscenes often have a decision to make, and skipping the cutscene can easily cause you to pick an answer you didn't intend to select.

If you're into story modes, Face of the Franchise is just for you, as you tackle unique gameday goals influenced by the story and your own decisions.

GOAT ON GOAT - The two best players in NFL are worthy "MVP" cover Stars

EA Sports has changed the game this year, choosing two former cover athletes to join forces as the first ever to be on their second Madden cover.

Madden 22 cover athletes Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady will also be just the second two-athlete cover, following the Madden 10 cover which included Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald.

On top of breaking things up as a pair this year, Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will also be the cover athletes for every version of Madden 22, including the Standard Edition, MVP Edition, and Dynasty Edition.

Madden 22 Reveal Trailer

This first look at the upcoming title gave fans both a glimpse of the gameplay itself and the visual upgrades coming in Madden 22.

With EA Play Live just over the horizon and the game now a little over a month away, we should continue to see trailers and footage released that showcases Madden 22.

How did Lamar Jackson perform after being the Madden 21 Cover Athlete?

Jackson was rewarded for his MVP Season back in 2019 with the Madden 21 Cover Athlete slot.

CURSE BROKEN: Jackson defied the odds and excelled last season

Jackson followed that up by leading the Baltimore Ravens to an 11-4 record and a playoff win against the Tennessee Titans. He threw for 26 touchdowns and rushed for over 1,000 yards.

Needless to say, he pretty much buried the Madden Curse.

It's likely that this year will do the same, as we expect both Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes to have another huge year in the NFL and could each find their way into the 99 Club for Madden 22.
