Madden NFL 19 Longshot: Homecoming Details Revealed

EA Sports has revealed Longshot will make its return in Madden NFL 19 for season 2, calling it Homecoming.

Longshot broke new ground for Madden last season. It not only delivered the franchise’s first-ever story mode, but it gave gamers a new way to experience the NFL with an emotional story and engaging characters.

Following last year’s critical acclaim, fans can continue the story of Devin Wade and Colt Cruise in Madden NFL 19. Longshot: Homecoming delivers more depth as these beloved characters continue their personal journeys, on and off the football field.

Just like other features in Madden, fan and community feedback were the forefront of development. One of the common requests was that gamers wanted to feel more involved with Longshot from a gaming perspective. With that, this season players will be taken through four times the gameplay and be thrown into even more on-field action.

Players will continue to track Devin Wade and Colt Cruise on their journey following the results of the reality competition that propelled Wade’s football career into the spotlight. In this season of Longshot, Wade starts training camp with the Dallas Cowboys.  Players will control Wade’s story in his quest to prove he belongs in the NFL. Cruise’s story focuses on his attempt to get another chance in the NFL while off the field obligations tear him further away from his dream.

Longshot in Madden 19 also takes its immersive gameplay outside the story mode. Now, you will be able to continue Devin and Colt’s narrative in Madden’s other popular game modes, Connected Franchise and Madden Ultimate Team. See if you can take Devin to Super Bowl glory in Franchise while building the legend of Mathis football as Colt looks to guide his high school to gridiron success.

Plunge into a storyline with immersive gameplay and depth surrounding their favorite sport when you take your football prowess into the Homecoming in Madden 19.

  1. Meh. What was even the point of allowing us to pick what team we get drafted to, if were just going to get locked into playing for the cowboys in part 2? I’m sure it will be more fun since we actually get to play in the NFL. But I would much prefer the focus be on a superstar mode where I can play as ME and have a career my way.
    Not a fan of the locked Cowboys narrative. I honestly thought the team you were drafted by would carry over.
    Really thought that the ending of Longshot meant that you could carry over your save and have the coach from the Longshot show become head coach of the team that drafted you (he hints at making an NFL comeback himself in a cutscene). At least that would be the way I would've done it.
    I guess this is a way to do easy player/coach/owner cameos. In that case, time to break down the acting skills of Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett.
    I know the team you chose effected the card you got for Wade and Colt in MUT but I guess that is all that mattered now.

    I get that both Devin and Colt are Texas guys and being on the Cowboys from that perspective is fine....but I REALLY don't like that from what we're reading here the endings we all got in last year's Longshot won't carry over. I don't know how The Journey does their story but could anyone tell me if it's similar?

    It not a big deal. Played Longshot and it shouldn’t come as a shocker for anyone who did. Decisions were not “real” to begin with. You were forced down a certain path with very little variance. This is par for longshot

    Not Surprised at all.
    In video, MY does say that they don't make it through training camp and it is based on a year later

    Well tell Nintendo to make a console on par with the other two consoles and maybe more 3rd party developers would make games for it.

    Depends on what you mean by on par. I think it does what it sets out to do very well.
    Honestly I would love a collaboration between EA and Nintendo similar to Ubisoft and Nintendo with the Mario+Rabbids Kingdom battle.
    Imagine Backyard Football but with Nintendo characters. 7 on 7 fast paced gameplay.
    I know many people are not a fan of this mode, but this has so much potential which nobody can deny. The thing that will always hold this back is the forced storyline and forcing players down a path that isn't their own. Like from things I saw on YouTube, if you failed at certain things they just made you retry until you did it right to fit the storyline. It wasn't anything like if you failed, it effected how the rest of the story plays out.
    The faster they get away from a forced storyline and creating your own path with your own player then this will be good.
