EA Sports released the Standard Edition of Madden NFL 18 today. The game comes equipped with all kinds of enhancements and a story mode. Online team play will be available via MUT Squads.
EA Sports' Madden NFL 18 launched today and it did so with a bunch of enhancements. "Madden NFL 18 touts a long list of new enhancements including its debut on the celebrated Frostbite gaming engine, and features such as the first-ever story mode "Longshot" and exciting new ways to team up and play with friends in MUT Squads."
Tom Brady serves as the cover star of both the G.O.A.T. Edition of Madden NFL 18, released earlier this week and the standard edition that's launching today.
Longshot is the franchise's first ever campaign mode. The campaign takes the players through "an emotional, immersive and cinematic gameplay experience where players will determine the fate of Devin Wade, a forgotten NFL prospect, on his journey to the Draft - on and off the field". The mode features branching dialogue, high school and 7v7 football play, as well as some new gameplay mechanics. It also features recognisable, Hollywood talent like Mahershala Ali, and Scott Porter.
"With Madden NFL 18, old fans, new fans and casual fans alike will all find something that appeals to them in this year’s edition of the game," said Madden NFL 18 Executive Producer, Seann Graddy. "Every year we try to push Madden NFL further than we did the year before and this year with Tom Brady on the cover who has embodied the Longshot story in his career, Frostbite, MUT Squads, new gameplay mechanics and more, we’re giving fans the greatest NFL gaming experience ever."
With the transition to Frostbite, Madden NFL 18 will deliver the most photorealistic visuals in Madden NFL to date.
MUT in the MUT Squads stands for Madden Ultimate Team. MUT Squads will bring online team play to Madden NFL 18. "Players can combine rosters to create the best lineups of current NFL stars and legends, choose their role and team with up to two other players to conquer the gridiron. In addition, new gameplay mechanics bring a richer on-field experience with more accessibility and added control".
Additional feature is Play Now Live, where players can play the best real-world NFL match-ups throughout the season and continue their season in Franchise mode with updated rosters and records.
Three new game styles are available: Arcade, Simulation, and Competitive. Game styles let players decide their experience and customise the game.
Madden NFL Mobile recently launched its fourth season. Madden NFL Mobile features competitive tournaments, player leveling, enhanced visuals, and its first-ever story mode. Madden NFL Mobile is available for free on the App Store and via Google Play.
