At the end of this month, you’ll finally have your chance to play the full version of Madden NFL 13. While you’re counting down the days until the release, how does a demo of Madden NFL 13 coming next week sound?
We thought you’d like that. Operation Sports is reporting that the Playstation Blogcast has revealed the official date of the demo. The Madden NFL 13 demo will go live on August 14th for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Playstation Vita.
The contents of the demo have yet to be revealed, but we would expect EA SPORTS to make an announcement by Monday at the latest. With Connected Careers being such a big focus of the game, we would expect for the mode to have a small playable section in the demo.
What system are you looking forward to playing the demo on? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss Madden NFL 13 in our forums.
UPDATE: Since we brought you the news of when it was releasing, we’ve now received the official details of what the demo will contain. We’ve included the official details of the demo below:
The Madden NFL 13 demo offers two Play Now matchups. One features the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants visiting the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship game. The other involves the Seattle Seahawks traveling to the Washington Redskins, who are of course led by rookie QB Robert Griffin III. And before you step onto the field for either of these matchups, you’ll get to check out the redesigned pregame presentation. That includes a broadcast TV-inspired segment that features some top players in the upcoming game you’re about to play, and is followed by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the booth talking about the story of the game.
On the field, you have access to everything that’s new in Madden NFL 13. This includes Total Control Passing to accurately place the ball anywhere on the field as the QB; the Ball Hawk mechanic to aggressively play the ball in the air as a defender; play action abort to cancel out of a play action when sensing pressure as a QB; use of Kinect (Xbox 360 only) to control pre-play audibles and adjustments with your voice; and of course the Infinity Engine that brings physics you can feel on every play.
