Madden NFL 20 Closed Beta Arrives on June 14, Here's How You Could Possibly Get a Code

The Madden NFL 20 closed beta is set to arrive on Friday, June 14 at 12:00 p.m. EST and is scheduled to run through Sunday, June 16 at midnight.

Fans that receive a code can play all of the modes available in the game, except for Face of the Franchise: QB1 Campaign and Madden Ultimate Team.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots, and New Orleans Saints will be the only teams available in the closed beta.

Looking for a chance to obtain a Madden NFL 20 closed beta code? Here’s how.

  • Beginning June 8, EA PLAY attendees have a chance to get codes to access the Madden NFL 20 beta. Stop by our Madden booth, and if you get a code, double check it’s for the right console.
  • From June 10 to June 14, we’ll give codes to select players on our social channels. Make sure to follow @EAMaddenNFL on Twitter and EAMaddenNFL on Twitch.
  • Our dev team will also spread the love. We’ll amplify posts from Twitter, and we’ll share codes with our communities. Check out MUTHEAD and Reddit (Madden Ultimate Team) for a chance to get a code.
  • Check your email associated with your EA Account for another chance to get access. And if you’re a competitor in the Madden Championship Series, keep an extra eye on your inbox, because we’re sending out codes to randomly selected competitors.

FAQ

WHAT’S A CLOSED BETA?

A closed beta is a large-scale test where a set number of players can play specific parts of an early version of a game by entering a one-time use unlock code.

For you, the player, it’s a way to get hands-on experience with Madden NFL 20. For us at EA, we takeaway learnings about how the game behaves and have an opportunity to test how stable our servers are.

WILL MY PROGRESS CARRY OVER FROM THE BETA?

It will not. To keep everyone on an even playing field at launch, we will reset any progress you made during the beta.

HOW TO ACCESS THE BETA

You can redeem your code through the PlayStation or Microsoft stores on your console.

For PlayStation:

  1. Open the PlayStation Store from your PlayStation 4.
  2. Choose Redeem Codes from the Store menu.
  3. Enter your code and follow the on-screen instructions.

For Xbox:

  1. Go to the Games store.
  2. Choose Use a code and type in the code.

CAN I CAPTURE OR STREAM THE BETA?

No.

By activating your code, you’re also agreeing to refrain from capturing or streaming the game in any way. Any content that is posted will be taken down and your access to the beta will be revoked immediately.

  1. I'm too old for the Hunger Games stuff that happened with the codes last year, so I'm hoping they send codes out to people who sign up through a website or, even better, to Access/Origin Premiere subscribers.
    EDIT: No PC beta, oof. Here's hoping I'm one of the people who gets an e-mail.
    I wrote an article about why I thought an open beta was needed for 20 even though I pretty much knew it was going to be a repeat of 19. I am surprised that the public portion of the closed Beta is only 3 days after the much longer time frame last year. To me it signals the beta is much more marketing ploy then a bug finding expedition.
    I don't understand why they don't try to use Beta codes for pre-orders. Add a beta code to whatever the most expensive pre-order and there want the game early and play the beta for a weekend. Instead we get to have the feeding frenzy on twitter where they'll drop hundreds of codes over a couple days.

    Umm thats even worse idea than what they are doing. People should not have to pay money to be in a beta to try to help the devs find issues . Your basically being a free game tester for them . No one should have to pay more money to do a job for a company where they actually pay people money to do that same job. Most of us dont mind doing it for free to try to help them find issues before launch. But pay to help them, no thanks.

    This is exactly the issue i have with it ^ . If you really want good feedback , it should be more than 3 days. Actions always speak louder than words.

    Got me a code from my EA connect since I was unable to get to E3. Will let anyone know whats up if have questions.

    If it's like last year, I'm sure you are under a NDA and can't comment on much, if at all.

    Thats true its not up yeah but yeah has the same kind of watermark thing going on when I tried to play it.
    Have they started dishing out codes yet? I've surprisingly already preordered this which i usually don't do any more but i had a couple games i was no longer interested in.

    I was expecting it but im still disappointed its the jump through hoops for a code type beta.

    Same here. I'll just check my email from time to time in the hopes I receive a key...
    It's fun going to the beta page while you're tired greeted with
    WELCOME TO THE MADDEN 20 BETA
    Only to realize it says 'please sign in' below it :)
    Then opened up Origin and it invited me to install the Anthem public test server, hope it does the same for Madden at some point, lol.
