    Madden NFL 18's Cover Athlete Is Tom Brady


    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be the cover athlete of Madden NFL 18, Electronic Arts has announced.

    For the first time in Madden NFL history, the cover athletes in back-to-back years are teammates, as the five-time Super Bowl champion follows last year's cover athlete, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

    Madden NFL 18 will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on August 25. The latest installment in the long-running sports franchise will be powered by Frostbite, which, according to EA, "delivers a significant visual leap not only to the players, but crowds, stadiums and more."

    Alongside today's cover reveal, Electronic Arts revealed Madden NFL 18's pre-order bonuses. Those who pre-order the standard version will receive five Squad Packs and the choice of an Elite player for use in Ultimate Team.

    Meanwhile, those who pre-order the G.O.A.T. Edition will get the aforementioned content in the standard edition, as well as the ability to choose one of five G.O.A.T. players for Ultimate Team. Owners of this edition will also get three-day early access to the game, allowing them to dive into the action on August 22.

    Additionally, EA Access members will be able to try out the game early for up to 10 hours starting August 17.

    Electronic Arts will share additional details about Madden NFL 18, including a new mode, at EA Play on June 10. The publisher will showcase a number of other games as well, including Ghost Games' new Need for Speed title, as well as FIFA 18, NBA Live 18 and Star Wars Battlefront II.

  • What makes the goat addition better than the standard edition? I'm not sure if I should upgrade my pre-order.

    Nothing. It's the same game only MUT players can "get a jump" on other MUT players by paying more up front as opposed to buying packs after purchasing the base game.

    In other words the G.O.A.T. edition is the sheeple edition.

  • So, other than the target passing (which is a cool addition), it's basically the same as 17?

    No, more information will be released at the EA Play event, which is June 10 – 12, 2017.

  • Id like to see the draft be more in-depth than just a pick a round. And the franchise mode start at the draft instead of taking whom ever your team took this year
  • When does the deal run out
