The latest entry in EA's Madden NFL series will officially be arriving in the form of Madden NFL 22 on August 20, featuring "everything you love about NFL injected into every mode via ALL-NEW Dynamic Gameday."

New features include a redeveloped Franchise mode that will "make players feel more connected and in control of their team," an all-new single player campaign and avatar progression system for The Yard, a new story, player class system, and the option to play on the defensive side of the ball as a linebacker in Face of the Franchise, and much more.

This is all built around something called Dynamic Gameday, which uses special Atmosphere, Gameday Momentum and Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI features to "make the game more immersive, authentic and keep it fresh year-round.”

"Gameday Atmosphere connects players to their NFL fandom through the crowds, environments, and presentation elements that enhance and impact every game. New Gameday Momentum performance-based mechanics, including Home Field Advantage which provides a unique game condition tailored to each NFL team’s stadium atmosphere, swing momentum, bringing the tangible influence of momentum to life on the field.

Lastly, Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI, powered by real world player data that will evolve throughout the season, changes AI behavior and team tendencies to make NFL superstars and the personality of each team more true-to-life."

Madden NFL 22 will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at launch this August, and those who pre-order the MVP or Dynasty Editions of the game will get the benefit of 3-day early access. EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will also be able to check out a trial of the game pre-launch.
