With the NFL football season almost here, EA has announced that a new version of its popular Madden franchise will arrive on the App Store on Tuesday, Aug. 26. Madden Mobile will allow football fans to build a super team composed of some of the league’s best players. Gamers can then take their team into multiplayer matchups against friends, recreate an entire NFL season, or take on a live event. EA talks more about live events:
Live Events are quick, fun challenges that will dynamically update throughout the season. Hop into fast-paced challenges that offer awesome rewards, including new player packs, coins, special players and more.While EA didn’t mention a price for the game, expect this year’s edition to be a freemium model pioneered last year with Madden NFL 25.That’s definitely disappointing, and will probably turn more than a few players away from the game. We’ll definitely let you know if we hear anything more about Madden Mobile.
