Madden NFL 21 kicks off on August 28th. Electronic Arts announced this and at the same time published the first gameplay trailer, which shows cover star Lamar Jackson from the Baltimore Ravens in action. Some of the new game mechanics will also be presented. Madden NFL 21 is coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC-Origin. A version for Google Stadia is planned for winter 2020, and there will also be free upgrades to the next-gen versions.

Madden NFL 21 should bring players even closer to the field than before, promises Electronic Arts in the official announcement of the new offshoot of the American football simulation. Responsible for this are, among other things, new game mechanics, which on the one hand place the ball carrier in the center and on the other hand increase the possibilities for interaction on the defensive. Among other things, the pass rush option should be much more entertaining to play.

Mechanics in Madden NFL 21 in focus: Ball Carrier and D-Line

The “Ball Carrier Mechanics” are being reworked for Madden NFL 21. This means the control over the running back as well as on the receiver positions. With the new offshoot of the Sports Sim series, American football should feel a bit more realistic on the console and PC.

Aside from the new game and control mechanics, there will be other improvements, some of which are pretty obvious. The so-called “on field” camera will offer completely new settings and put players and game situations in the limelight. In addition to the familiar modes, “Face of the Franchise: Rise to Fame” will be a new campaign mode that will find its way into the game.

Fans can create their own player and lead the alter ego from high school football to college to professional level. Exciting: You are not tied to one position. While the career begins as quarterback in high school, college players can switch to running back or wide receiver. If you are good enough, you can use the NFL Combine to draft and then join one of the NFL teams. The Superstar X-Factor skills, those unique moves of the “real NFL pros”, are also being adapted. There are also new live playbooks and new Ultimate Team content.

Madden NFL 21 is available for pre-order. The pre-order grants early access to the game from August 25th. Everyone else will have to wait until the official release of Madden NFL 21 on August 28th. The game will be released for PC Origin, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, is part of the Xbox Smart Delivery feature, will also be upgraded for Playstation 5 and will also be released later for Google Stadia.
