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

Ball carrier mechanics are being reworked for Madden NFL 21. This means control over the running back and on the receiver positions. With the new offshoot of the sports sim series, American football should feel a little more realistic on console and PC.

A first gameplay trailer shows Lamar Jackson in action:

Alongside the new gameplay 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 stage players and game situations. In addition to the well-known modes, a new campaign mode will find its way into the game with “Face of the Franchise: Rise to Fame”.

Fans can create their own player and take the alter ego from high school football to college to pro. Exciting: You are not tied to one position. While high school careers begin as quarterbacks, college players can switch to running backs or wide receivers. Those who are good enough make it through the NFL Combine to the draft and then onto one of the NFL teams. The Superstar X-Factor abilities, those unique moves of the "real NFL pros", will also be 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.
