As promised yesterday, EA have fully unveiled Madden NFL 21 with a new trailer, and also confirmed a release date for the game. The sports sim title will be releasing on August 28 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The reveal trailer teases some of the improvements this year’s game is making, including skill stick for the ball carrier, new pass-rush control, realistic open-field tackling, and user-controlled celebrations.

The reveal trailer also goes hand-in-hand with other interesting information. Madden NFL 21 will, of course, also launch for PS5 and Xbox Series X later in the year, and EA have confirmed that it will support their free next-gen upgrade program – Dual Entitlement – on both. This was already confirmed for the Xbox Series X, and it’s the same deal for PlayStation. Anyone who purchases a copy of Madden NFL 21 on the PS4 can freely upgrade it to a PS5 version of the game for a full year- until Madden NFL 22 is out.

What’s also interesting is that on PC, for the first time in series history, Madden NFL 21 will also be available on Steam (in addition to EA’s own Origin, of course). EA have recently been supporting Steam more and more. In addition to EA Access and several of their older titles having been made available on the storefront, the recently announced Star Wars: Squadrons was also confirmed for a Steam release.

More information on Madden NFL 21 is expected to drop at EA Play this Thursday, so stay tuned for those updates.
