Madden 18 - Brady

It’s that time of year again. Madden season is just three months away, so it’s time to start revving up the hype train for Madden 18. Today, EA has announced who is poised to don the cover. And provided our first look at the game in the Frostbite engine with today’s trailer.

“Madden Like You’ve Never Seen It”

It remains to be seen exactly how the Frostbite engine enhances Madden 18, but EA is certainly willing to promote it from that angle. They are touting that “Frostbite delivers a significant visual leap not only to the players, but crowds, stadiums and more. Such a special game truly deserves an equally-special cover athlete.” And to promote this year’s version, they’ve brought in none other than arguably the Greatest of All-Time – Tom Brady:

“The Madden NFL 18 cover is a great honor for me,” said Brady. “Especially since I have been playing the game since growing up next to EA headquarters in the Bay Area. I’m not one to believe in curses, so I’m ready to take the challenge head on like always! It doesn’t stand a chance!!!”

Not much was shared today other than the trailer below. EA is saving the majority of the goods for their EA Play event at E3 on June 10th. Until then, catch a few fleeting moments of gameplay in the clip below.
