Latest - New details about Face of the Franchise

With plenty of new features coming to Madden 22 already having been revealed, we finally got a closer look at the single-player career mode Face of the Franchise.

The game mode has gotten mixed reviews in recent years, but looks to try and flip the script this year with several upgrades and the new ability to play as a linebacker.

The official Madden 22 release date will be August 20, 2021, but there is another way to get in on the action even earlier.

Early Access will also be available to players who pre order the MVP Edition or Dynasty Edition of the game, allowing you to have access to the full game as early as August 17, 2021.

There was also a Community Playtest (Closed Beta) for Madden 22 which has already concluded, but you can check out our full beta review looking at first impressions of the unfinished build we were given access to.

10-hour EA Play Trial

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY: The EA Play Trial will once again offer fans a chance to try the game

The standard 10-hour gameplay trial and demo will once again be available to EA Play subscribers only, and it will be released on August 12, 2021.

It's not official yet whether all game modes will be available with that trial, but it's possible that EA Sports will add a few restrictions on top of the timer to incentivize players to buy the full version of Madden 22.

PC once again relegated to current gen

Unfortunately, any hopes that Madden 22 players on PC had of their powerful gaming builds getting access to next gen features have been dashed once again.

This comes despite the fact that many modern gaming PC builds are as powerful as next gen consoles, if not even more powerful.

EA Sports did offer a response to criticisms of this move:

"We’re still early in the transition to next-gen and right now the team is focused on making the best, quality experience on new consoles before looking to upgrade other platforms."

We'll still see improvements made to Franchise Mode available for Madden 22 on PC, but other things like Dynamic Gameday will be missing.

Price & Pre Order

While the lack of next gen features will frustrate some, the good news is that Madden 22 will still have current gen pricing on PC.

On top of that, pricing is a bit different for the MVP and Dynasty Edition due to the fact that Dual Entitlement can't be included as there is no expected next gen version ever coming to PC for Madden 22.
