A new gameplay trailer for Madden NFL 2017 was featured at this year’s EA Press Conference. This year’s Madden features the most balanced gameplay, new ways to play in franchise mode, and a new commentary team.
EA is also pushing competition, with three new tiers of competitive modes: Challenger, Premiere, and EA Majors. Challenger will make it easier for players to host tournaments. Premiere are hosted by EA with partners both inside and outside gaming. And EA Majors are run by EA on a global stage, with the best players competing for massive prizes.
The first EA Major will be this weekend in the Madden NFL 16 Championship with the top eight players of the world fighting it out.
EA is also putting up $1 million in prize money for the winner of the Madden NFL 17 Championship Series, spread over four EA Majors.
You can view the new gameplay trailer below for Madden NFL 17, which will release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on August 23, 2016.
