Yeah, I know, not exactly a huge surprise, but I guess even annual sports games need to be announced!

The latest entry in the long-running "Madden" franchise will launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 10, publisher Electronic Arts announced on Friday.

"We've worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes". This game will focus on "Real Player Motion" technology, custom draft classes, and Ultimate Team. The Connected Franchise mode will also be tied to a new player progression system, while allowing you to set your teams scheme and acquire players with the specific skill sets to properly fit in to that scheme. "Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways".


Interestingly, there is no word of story mode returning, which was introduced with last year's installment. Play an exhibition game featuring NFL Legends & today's NFL Stars; Team up with friends & challenge 3 others in competitive 3v3 play or compete with 2 other players against the CPU.

Those who decide to pick up the regular version of Madden NFL 19 will receive one Elite Player from any NFL team and five Gold Team Fantasy Packs. Along with early access, Hall of Fame Edition players will get a special cover for the game starring former National Football League receiver, Terrell Owens, 12 gold team fantasy packs, immediate access to an elite legend player for their Ultimate Team, two custom uniforms for Ultimate Team, and more.
