    Madden NFL 19 - Release Date, HOF Cover, First Feature Info, & More


    Today Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) announced EA SPORTS Madden NFL 19, set to deliver more game-changing control to players than ever before. With Real Player Motion Technology, a new animation system that unlocks next level responsiveness and player personality, players will experience more precision as they run, cut, catch and celebrate on the gridiron this season. Along with more authentic ways to build an NFL roster, the ability to train and develop players, achieving NFL greatness never felt so personal. EA celebrates this year’s release three days earlier on August 7th with the Hall of Fame Edition, featuring six-time Pro Bowl player and 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee, wide receiver, Terrell Owens on the cover. Fans can anticipate a second cover athlete for the Standard Edition to be released on August 10th. Experience all the tackles, touchdowns, and turnovers in EA SPORTS Madden NFL 19 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, on August 10th.

    “We’ve worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes,” said Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Producer on Madden NFL 19. “Real Player Motion technology combined with all new franchise-building tools like Positional Archetypes and the return of Custom Draft Classes are features that football fans will find fun and engaging. Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways.”

    In Madden NFL 19 Franchise Mode, players can choose the offensive and defensive schemes that best fit their playstyle as they compete in single player and/or multiplayer seasons. Schemes are also linked to a new intuitive progression system - based on authentic positional archetypes - that give virtual coaches the tools and the big decision to either win now or build their squad for the future. NFL fans will also have a top community-requested feature with the introduction of Custom Draft Class Creator where fans can create their own draft classes featuring players from the past and present for use in Franchise.

    Madden NFL 19 Ultimate Team gives fans even more ways to choose their path to glory as new training tools let them develop their favorite players their way via Player Upgrades. For players who want to prove they’re the best of the best in Solo Challenges, a new curated single-player experience called MUT Solo Battles provides a leaderboard reward system allowing fans to showcase their skills on the field while competing against other top Ultimate Team players.

    EA also announced two Madden NFL 19 pre-order offers packed with rewards. Fans who pre-order the standard edition will receive the full game on August 10th and their choice of one Elite Player from their favorite NFL team, as well as five Gold Team Fantasy Packs. In celebration of Terrell Owens’ induction to the Hall of Fame, fans who pre-order the Hall of Fame Edition of Madden NFL 19 will receive all the benefits of the standard edition but also 3-day earlier access, their choice of one of five Elite Hall of Fame Legends in Madden Ultimate Team, one Training Pack, and seven additional Gold Team Fantasy Packs. For fans who can’t wait to get hands-on with this year’s authentic football experience, EA Access members can play Madden NFL 19 first, starting August 2nd on Xbox One. EA Access members will also receive a 10 percent discount when they pre-order the digital version of Madden NFL 19 on Xbox Live.

    Will still buy it because I do so every year. This and NCAA Football used to be the games that got me excited when E3 rolled around. Can't wait for that MUT coverage.

    Good to hear they are going back to early August. That being said this games is dead to me unless a monumental CFM overhaul has occurred.

    Ugghh... the released info on franchise thus far is editable draft classes... I'm not opposed to the feature but if that's a sign of things to franchise mode fans are in trouble. Remember this year is the promised franchise overhaul so they need to deliver.

    Editable draft classes probably is the promised franchise overhaul.

    Either way, I'm skipping this at launch. If I get it, it'll likely be when they have it on sale for cheap around the Super Bowl like they do every year.

    Technically, I'm pretty sure the draft classes could be edited at the start of M18 (maybe it was 17) but since it allowed people (commish?) to see complete info on the player, they patched it out. It was a feature/addition they didn't hype at all, but some stumbled across it.

    Not looking promising unless you like quasi gambling pay to win mut. It's sad that we are a site of sports gamers at heart and I'd bet most of us are just about done with Madden/EA sports titles.

    There is nothing in that info packet to get me excited. Just more of the same disappointment. I didn't miss Madden at all when I skipped it last year after 2 disappointing releases (for me) and I doubt I buy it again this year. At this point I think I may prefer a fun, arcade style of game more like a good looking Tecmo Bowl than what EA releases as NFL football. The game isn't fresh and isn't that fun for me anymore. I don't even know how to fix this franchise but apathy has set in hard.
