Madden 10 Website Launches With New Info

Posted March 31st, 2009 at 9:29 pm


The official website for Madden 10 went live earlier this evening. Most of what is currently being offered are teases to future dates. The first footage will come on April 23rd, the cover athlete will be revealed on Friday April 24th, a preview will be in Gamepro scheduled to hit shelves on May 5th, and EA has big plans for an interactive experience throughout the Draft on April 25th. The game will release on Friday August 14th which is a change from the traditional Tuesday releases.

On-field authenticity and emotion is taken to another level in Madden NFL 10. With more control over the outcome of the play than ever before, players can drag defenders towards the first down marker, fight for a fumble at the bottom of the pile, and avoid the rush by stepping up into the pocket.

The cover teasing begins with a listing of the first two “candidates” with two additional players to be discussed each Monday leading up the announcement. While Ed Reed and Adrian Peterson are two viable candidates my gut is that they wouldn’t mention the actual cover guy in the first round of hints. My full cover prediction article is still to come but feel free to leave your guesses in the comments.
