Hook it to my veins!
EA have released the trailer for Madden NFL 21, with Lamar Jackson officially announced as the cover star for this year's edition of the game:
Go All Out in Madden NFL 21 with innovative gameplay mechanics that offer advanced levels of control and inspire creativity on both sides of the ball. Feel all-out control with the new Skill Stick ball-carrier system, dominate the edge with fresh pass rush moves, experience more open-field realism with tackle improvements, and have more fun with user-controlled celebrations.
The game will be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on 28 August (available 25 August for those who pre-order the MVP edition) and will also be available on the new Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X when they launch later in the year. Those who purchase Madden NFL 21 on current Playstation and Xbox platforms will be then able to upgrade their game to the next generation console for free, once they do so before the release of Madden NFL 22 (some exceptions apply, visit here for more info).
Speaking about his involvement with the game, NFL MVP Lamar Jackson said "“I grew up playing Madden and owned every copy I could get my hands on, so to be on the cover of Madden NFL 21 is a dream come true, especially when the cover represents so much of my story."
“The welcome to the Madden family from around the league and from fans has been phenomenal and I think people will have a lot of fun with the new features coming in this year’s game.”
