Madden NFL 20 announced
Patrick Mahomes selected as cover athlete
Electronic Arts has announced Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, 2018 NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year Patrick Mahomes, as the official Madden NFL 20 cover athlete.
Mahomes notched a record-setting first season as a starter, becoming the only quarterback in history to throw for over 5,000 yards in one season in both college and the NFL, and the third quarterback to throw at least 50 touchdown passes in a single season.
Mahomes inspired and contributed to the development of Face of the Franchise: QB1, a brand-new and personalized career campaign in Madden NFL 20 that allows fans to create their own college quarterback to play through the College Football National Championship playoff, the NFL Combine, the NFL Draft and a career as a starting Quarterback for an NFL team. In Face of the Franchise: QB1 and traditional Franchise, a new Scenario Engine generates unique playable scenarios, events and dynamic challenges that build the story of each fan’s distinct NFL career.
Another inclusion to this year’s game is Superstar X-Factor, which brings the stars of the NFL to life as they demonstrate the unique abilities that make them the best in the game. In addition, fans can expect new player celebrations, run/pass option (RPO) plays and unique playbooks.
For eager fans, Madden NFL 20: Superstar Edition is available to pre-order today and includes 12 Gold Team Fantasy Packs, a choice of 1 out of 32 core elite players from a favorite NFL team, one small training quick sell pack in Madden Ultimate Team and a choice of one unique Legends Superstar ability for their created player in the new Face of the Franchise: QB1.
Madden NFL 20 will be available on August 2, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC.
