The hype for Madden 22's release later this year on PC just keeps building and building.


The title will probably see a simultaneous drop on next gen platforms, but we can still anticipate Madden 22 on PC.

Here's everything we know about the Madden 22 on PC reveal trailer, release date, pre order, and more.

EA Play Trial expected for Madden 22

Although we still have some time until Madden 22 is released, many fans are looking ahead to the expect EA Play Trail the game will have.

TEST OUT THE GAME: EA Play subscribers get a chance to try out Madden 22 before buying it

In place of a traditional demo, the new normal for EA Sports is a 10 hour gameplay trail to EA Play subscribers, and we could see that again in 2021.

The trail would probably come out a week before the game is officially released, and it should give fans an opportunity to test out Madden 22 before they make a commitment to buying the whole game.


Madden 22 Reveal Trailer

There still isn't a reveal trailer for Madden 22 on PC, but it will probably be one of the first big milestones we see on the road to launch.

Madden 21's reveal trailer came out on June 16, 2020, so we can expect the Madden 22 reveal trailer to be dropped around June 15, 2020.

Although the initial reveal trailer won't show the entire game, we'll still probably get a glimpse of gameplay and graphics on next gen and current gen consoles.

Release Date on PC

An established release date for Madden 22 on PC still hasn't been announced, but we still have a pretty good idea of when the game will drop.

In previous years, Madden has typically released in late August. The last couple Madden games launched on a Friday, so it's safe to assume Madden 22 could be released sometime between August 20 and August 27, 2021.

Last year we saw Madden 21 come out on current gen months before it ever released on next gen. However, with another year of next gen under our belts we'll probably see Madden 22 hit all platforms simultaneously.

Madden 22 on PC Price

Although next gen users can anticipate the continued climb to $70 standard edition pricing at release, current gen fans don't have to worry about that.

SPECIAL EDITIONS: Fans who get special editions of Madden 22 will receive added benefits.

Madden 22 on PC will probably carry the normal $60 price, as that has been the case for all current gen platforms.

For those who are thinking about buying special edition of Madden 22 on PC, the price will be a lot steeper. Last year's Madden 21 Deluxe Edition went for $80 and the MVP Edition was $100. However, the special editions do come with plenty of perks that many consider to be worth the price jump.

Madden 22 Pre Order


Judging by previous years, pre orders for Madden 22 are likely to go live by June or July. However, pre orders definitely won't be available until the game is announced with confirmed editions.

Pre orders are most likely go live after the EA Play Live showcase, which is set for Thursday, 22 July.

You should be able to pre order Madden 22 from all the major retailers: Amazon, GAME (UK), Gamestop, and all the notable PC game stores.

Current Gen Gameplay

There is a lot of excitement about what Madden 22 will look like on next gen now that EA Sports has an entire development cycle to work on it. But, they certainly can't neglect their current gen fans.

IMPROVED FRANCHISE MODE: Current gen players may not get the improvements next gen does, but franchise mode should still receive a big update.

Since most people are still on current gen platforms, it would be naive for EA Sports to not upgrade the current gen version of Madden 22.

We'll probably see the biggest improvement for Madden 22 on next gen, but there should still be significant changes to core gameplay, new features on Franchise Mode and other advancements for the PC version of the game.
