New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will appear on the cover of Madden NFL 18, EA Sports announced.
Brady is the cover athlete for both the standard edition and the G.O.A.T. edition of Madden 18. Pre-ordering the standard edition will net players bonuses that include the choice of an Elite player from any NFL team for Madden Ultimate Team and five squad packs. The G.O.A.T. edition includes the same plus more, including the player’s choice of five G.O.A.T. players to use in Ultimate Team.
EA Sports released the first trailer for the game alongside the announcement. The trailer can be viewed below.
Madden 18 will be the first in the franchise to run on the improved Frostbite Engine. The life-like engine will help provide enhanced graphics and animations for players, stadiums and crowds.
The game is set to release Aug. 25 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players who purchase the G.O.A.T. edition of the game will be able to play three days early on Aug. 22. EA Access subscribers will get even earlier access to Madden 18. The “Play First” trial, which allows gamers to play up to 10 hours of a game, will start on Aug. 17.
