    Just ahead of EA Play on June 9, EA SPORTS has begun the news release and marketing campaign for Madden NFL 19 today by releasing the first game info, the Hall of Fame Cover, and release dates.

    Gracing the cover of the Hall of Fame Edition of the game will be Terrell Owens, a 2018 HOF inductee. Despite spending most of his career as a 49er, Owens will grace the HOF edition as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. The cover athlete for the standard edition will be announced at a later date.

    This year the game will release in early August. More specifically, August 2 for EA Access members, HOF Edition on August 7, and the Standard Edition on August 10. The move extends Madden away from a busy fall release calendar and titles such as NBA 2K19, Red Dead Redemption 2, Battlefield V, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Among the noted features: Real Player Motion Technology, selection of schemes and the ability to create Custom Draft Classes in Franchise Mode, and Player Upgrades and MUT Solo Battles in Madden Ultimate Team.
