Ready to enjoy football season? Sure you are ready, and Electronic Arts is ready for you to enjoy it as well. You know the drill for late August. Madden NFL 17 is almost here.

Madden NFL 17 attempts to go beyond the “be the playmaker” mantra that highlighted better presentations and options for offensive play. This year’s game ups the ante on defense, by having the game better position defenders not directly being controlled by the player. Offense players get to be more creative in getting the ball to the end-zone.

Franchise Mode has team practice, player editing, game planning and a news ticker that provides news about what’s happening in the league simulation at that very moment.
