Today, EA Sports released its first look at Madden NFL 21, during Microsoft’s Inside Xbox First Look at Xbox Series X Gameplay announcements. The video which can be found below, shows a quick look at an early build of the game and gives some insight into what gamers can expect from the next generation of Madden.
During the video, featuring Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, he mentions that gamers purchasing Madden NFL 21 on Xbox One (by December 31, 2020), can upgrade to Xbox Series X (by March 31, 2021). Unfortunately, as of this writing, this seems to be a Microsoft exclusive and will not work for those that decide to purchase the Playstation version. We posted some news about it yesterday.
Based on the short video released today, it appears EA is adding new animations at the goal line. In the video released, Mahomes avoids pressure and extends the ball over the pylon. Something that we have not seen in year’s past. In fact, in recent years, this would result in a fumble into the back of the endzone.
Check back later today to see if any more details are released on Madden NFL 21. Until then, let us know your thoughts.
