EA airs out the cover with Tom Brady as its cover athlete for Madden NFL 18.
Madden has gone to the Patriots… again. First Gronk graced last years Madden NFL 17, now Tom Brady will be on the cover this years Madden NFL 18.
Will Brady end the Madden cover curse? If anyone can defy those odds its number 12. Even his 4 game suspension last season could not keep him from raising the NFL championship trophy.
“The Madden NFL 18 cover is a great honor for me,” said Brady. “Especially since I have been playing the game since growing up next to EA headquarters in the Bay Area. I’m not one to believe in curses, so I’m ready to take the challenge head on like always! It doesn’t stand a chance!!!”
Having won multiple championships, Brady seems like the right person this year to grace the cover of Madden NFL 18.
Fans won’t have to wait long to hear new details about the game, including a brand-new mode, are set to debut at EA’s EA Play event on June 10. Fans can expect to see big things in this year’s title, including new ways to play, and some of the greatest innovation in this years game which will be run on Frostbite.
EA also announced pre-order offers for two distinct editions of Madden NFL 18. Fans who pre-order the standard edition will receive numerous benefits, including the choice of an Elite player from their favorite NFL team for use in Madden NFL 18 Ultimate Team, as well as five Squad Packs, redeemable at launch.
In celebration of the Greatest of All Time, those looking for even more can opt for the G.O.A.T. Edition, which gets them not only what’s in the standard edition, but also one of five G.O.A.T. players of their choice for Madden NFL 18 Ultimate Team, and more.
EA Access members will get to play 10 hours of Madden 18 starting on August 17. G.O.A.T Edition owners will be able to play the game three days early starting on August 22.
