We are just about a week and a half away from the expected and most anticipated sports video game on the market. Madden 15 is expected to release on August 26th, 2014. This game is the highlight of my summer after the start of football. With Madden being the only football simulation game out there, there is a lot of hype and anticipation regarding its release.
EA Sports has been slow balling it with the release of some of its players and team ratings. Now for the disappointing part. Madden usually releases its demo, usually with playable features of the 2 Super Bowl teams from a year before. This release usually comes out about 2 to 3 weeks before the release of the full game.
We are well past that release date for the demo and do we have a demo yet? Nope. No demo because there is not going to be one. Madden 15 will usually supply a demo to get us all hyped up for the true release date so we can actually play Madden as we prefer; with our favorite team. This year EA Sports will release a demo only for Xbox One owners that have subscribed to EA Access. EA Access will provide owners the ability to play new games 5 days prior to their release date. The subscription is 4.99 a month or 29.99 for the year.
So those of us that own a PS3/PS4 or Xbox 360 have to wait until August 26th to be able to get a glimpse at and play the newly enhanced gameplay and a deeper connected franchise mode along with a new confidence level and pregame options.
With the love for football that this nation has and Madden being the only simulation game on the market, most of us will have to wait without a teaser demo to play for 2 weeks and just deal with trailer that are provided to us.
I know for me, August 26th can’t come soon enough!
