HIT THE FIELD: Experience the heart of Madden 22 first

Pick your favorite team and pit yourself against the best (Buccaneers) or worst (Jets) opponent in the game, or make it personal against a traditional team rival.

Get a feel for the gameplay on your platform. Whether you're new or returning, the core gameplay is the most important thing for you to test out first.

Become the Face of the Franchise

If you're looking to try the single player experience, one way is to tackle Face of the Franchise, which we've only learned bits and pieces about so far.

It's not known how long Face of the Franchise is, but you may be able to get through a significant chunk of it just through the EA Play Trial.

It may pull you in enough to pick up the full title, but it could also quickly reveal itself as far from your favorite game mode, allowing you to turn your attention elsewhere.

The Dynamic Gameday Experience (Next Gen Only)

One key piece of the puzzle is unfortunately restricted to those on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, but it's something all next gen players need to try.

Dynamic Gameday aims to augment the action like never before, bringing Gameday Atmosphere, Gameday Momentum, and Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI all into the equation.

Check out your favorite team's Home Field Advantage here, and then get ready to use it against your enemies in the Madden 22 trial.

Start your Madden 22 Franchise immediately

If you're one of the many longtime Madden players who has been frustrated with Franchise Mode in recent years, there's only one place for you to be when the trial goes live.


Get your Franchise started without hesitation, and see for yourself if upgrades like Staff Management, Weekly Strategy, and the new Scenario Engine are enough to shift your opinion of Franchise.

SUPER BOWL BOUND: Build your Franchise and shoot for the stars
