Release Date & Cover Athlete Announced

Or maybe that should be cover athletes, as this is only the second time ever Madden is putting two different stars on the same cover.

NEW FEATURES: They're changing things up once again this year

Face of the Franchise returns with "United We Rise," and for the first time this year you'll be able to play as a linebacker in addition to the option of choosing quarterback, wide receiver, or running back.

The Yard and Superstar KO will also be making a return, and The Yard will be integrated into Face of the Franchise for the first time thanks to unified progression.

Core gameplay is also getting some much-needed TLC, with upgraded physics to make the tackling engine more accurate based on player height and weight.
