E3 Reveal: Madden NFL 18 – Longshot

At EA’s annual E3 press conference earlier this afternoon, the brand new single-player story for Madden NFL 18 was revealed. Titled “Longshot” it tells the story of a young man named Devin Wade and his journey into the world of professional football. A cinematic story isn’t something you normally think of when you hear the word “Madden”, so it should be interesting to see how it plays out. With talent like Mahershala Ali, Scott Porter, and Dan Marino lending their likenesses to the game, Madden NFL 18 is shaping up to be an interesting new direction for the franchise. In fact, Andrew Wilson (CEO of EA) declared that it’s “the most innovative Madden we’ve done in over a decade”.

If you want to see just how far that innovation has gone, you can play the game when it releases on August 25th, 2017.

E3 2017: EA Press Conference

It’s the best time of year.
The time where developers and publishers come together to show off their upcoming projects and make the types of announcement that (for better or worse) light the internet on fire. EA kicked off the E3 festivities early this year by putting on their annual press conference this afternoon. While the largest focus was on the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II, there were a handful of announcements and trailers revealed that some could argue were more interesting.

The press conference can be watched uncut and in its entirety above, but make to sure to check back on the site later for individual breakdowns of each game.
