Real life football is trying to make a comeback despite all the issues with COVID still plaguing the United States. Who knows how that will go in the end, but at the very least, there’s no doubt the virtual version of the sport will be coming in as normally as possible later this month in the form of Madden NFL 21. The game promises the familiar things you’ve come to expect from the long running franchise, but it is also looking to shake things up a bit with a new mode.

Today, EA announced that with a new trailer for said mode called The Yard. This will be a new “backyard-inspired” game mode that features 6v6 matches on a smaller field. It will also apparently have different rules to accommodate the smaller team size, though it’s not clear what that entails, and it will also have a big focus on customization. Check out the trailer below.

Madden NFL 21 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 28th, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions to come later. You can also check out everything you’ll need to know about the annual football game through here.
