EA Sports has announced that the venerable NFL game series, Madden, will make its mobile return August 26th: the same day as the Xbox and Playstation release of Madden 15. Madden Mobile will include quick mini-challenges that allow you to earn players and coins, and full, 16-seasons for more hardcore play. Gamers will be able to unlock players from the past and present individually or as “player packs.”
Unfortunately EA hasn’t released any pricing details, but we suspect it will be free to play, considering EA’s penchant for making pay to win monstrosities. Considering last year’s release of Madden 25 was a freemium game (suspiciously no longer available on the App Store), and the fact that EA seems incapable of anything other than making franchises worse over time, we’ll keep our expectations for this year’s Madden Mobile quite low.
