Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

EA has released the first details of the new Madden 18 game, which will be released on August 25. If you by the Tom Brady G.OA.T. Edition, you can get it three days earlier.

Oh that's going to rile some people up I'm sure.

Also Bill better not trade Garopollo just yet... they could win without Gronk but if Brady is cursed?

Looks more like he's yawing, rather than the power yelling face.

To think, all this could have been avoided if Pete Carroll and Kyle Shannahan just ran the ball when they were supposed to.

He looks like he's waiting for a hot dog to fly in so he can eat it sideways.

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

You'd think 18 years in the limelight would make Brady somewhat comfortable and natural on camera for a 30 second commercial by now. You'd be wrong.

He said "there's no such things as curses." The subtitle was the correct "thing."

I was expecting him to break his leg at the end there or for Garopollo to come in and ambush him or something.

I thought after smashing the mirror, he might try to destroy his cell phone but get stopped by a Goodell look-alike. Alas, nothing.

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

I pre-orded the GOAT edition yesterday on my xbox digital download. It was only $63.99.

I also did the Rookie Premier card for Leonard Fournette.

I need to figure out which GOAT Player to choose. I am leaning towards Rice.

For my Elite player I have no idea.

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

Been thinking of getting a console after many years without one. I mostly play sports games but I am out of the loop.

Can you play as classic teams like in NBA 2K?
What are squad packs?
GOAT has 2500 contracts, What does that mean?

I yes I have googled it but am not understanding or not getting the information that I am looking for.

Thanks for the help

They haven't had a bunch of classic teams in a while, I think mainly because players not covered by the current nfl license were suing them.

The squad packs, contracts, all that stuff are part of modes like MUT (Madden Ultimate Team) which are basically ways for them to monetize this even further like a mobile game. You open packs to get players to form teams, and each player needs a contract to play, so that you can win more packs, buy more packs, and basically give them more money to play the game you already bought. You can safely ignore this mode if you want, I have a really hard time having to parse through contracts for all the linemen and stuff but maybe that's just me, the modes themselves seem super popular.

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

nah, madden did the smart thing getting the NFL exclusive license blocking sega from continuing to make their 2k series which was infinitely better then madden.

If and when sega makes another one. I would be the first person in line or onlline ordering it. lol

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

The only way I would buy it if is I could play as Montana's Niners so I guess this is a no buy for me.

Re: Madden NFL 18 - August 25.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned in another thread here, but Best Buy is doing their trade-in deal again this year for Madden. Trade in Madden 17, get $15 in store credit. You also get a coupon for $10 off Madden 18, and there is an additional $10 credit for preordering if you're a BB Rewards Member.
