Madden 22 Trial Release Time

With the Madden 22 trial under a day away, players are still wondering how to get 10 hours of gameplay early.

First of all, the trial will release to consoles on August 12, 2021. Platforms such as PC will have to wait. Keep in mind, the trial is only available through EA Play, so you'll need to be a member in order to access it.

The great news is that there are tons of perks to being an EA Play member, one of which is some cool rewards if you pre order Madden 22.

We expect the actual release time for the Madden 22 trial to be at Midnight ET on August 12 (August 11 at 11pm CT / 9pm PT), as this is the release time planned for the full game's launch.

If the Madden 22 trial isn't available then, they could instead use the launch window we saw with the FIFA 21 and Madden 21 trial last year, which would make it available at 11am ET (10am CT / 8am PT) on August 12.

Next gen users could get a look at Dynamic Gameday

This is probably the most exciting news for next gen console users. Being able to see the brand new feature created just for them during the trial.

We know from the Deep Dives and All Access videos that Dynamic Gameday is going to heavily impact next gen users' experience. They'll get to experience a taste of that experience during the EA Play Trial.
