  • Which Edition of the Madden 18 Game Should You Buy?

    There is much anticipation surrounding the release of Madden 18, slated for 25th August 2017. There are several changes to the editions of the Madden 18 game this year. With Madden 17, the special edition was the Deluxe Edition. This year, you’ll find two editions available again. They are Madden 18 and Madden 18 G.O.A.T. The G.O.A.T (greatest of all time) version is the special edition this year and its cover athlete is Tom Brady.

    There are reasons to buy the special edition this year, even if you aren’t planning on playing Ultimate Team or purchasing MUT coins. First, the special edition is actually slated for 22nd August, three full days before Madden 18 is scheduled to release. Additionally, the special edition can be played on various systems. The standard edition is only available for play on PS4 and Xbox One. So, it can’t be played on Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, or PS3.

    There are different price points for Madden 18 and the G.O.A.T version. The standard version will cost you $59.99 while the special edition sells for $79.99. With the standard edition of the game, you get the full game as well as 5 Madden 18 Ultimate Team Squad Packs and 1 elite player from your favorite team. This isn’t necessarily the version for you if you are looking to play Madden Ultimate Team with Madden Mobile Coins. So, the pro with the standard version is that it will cost you less, the con is that there are several upgraded features available with the special edition. And with the standard edition, you have to be playing on PS4 or Xbox One.

    With the G.O.A.T. special edition, you can expect to get a good number of improved features than with the standard edition. To start, you’ll still get the full game, 1 elite player and the 5 Madden Ultimate Team squad packs but you’ll also get 7 Madden Ultimate Team squad packs in addition to that. Then you’ll get 1 elite G.O.A.T. player, 1 MUT uniform pack, and 2500 contracts. And you get to purchase 3 days before the standard edition is released. The special edition is the best option if you are looking to play Madden Ultimate Team and are interested in Madden Ultimate Team Coins.

    There are a total of 5 G.O.A.T. players that are available with the special edition. They are Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, Ray Lewis, and of course Tom Brady. The expectation is that you’ll be able to choose your own players as opposed to having one assigned to you. Much of that is still unknown. So, the pro with the special edition is that you get several additional features, including early access, over the standard edition. The only real con to purchasing the special edition, is that it will cost you a bit more.

    There are other options, aside from picking a version, to consider when making your choice. Madden 18 can be purchased digitally or on a disk and the price stays consistent with both. There are not as many deals with the digital Madden 18, primarily because vendors want you to purchase in person. In addition, if you purchase on a disk, you can trade it in later. The only big positive to purchasing digitally, is that you’d be able to move pretty seamlessly between other games you might be playing without having to change out physical disks.

    Overall, if you are a Madden Ultimate Team player, the G.O.A.T version might be the better choice. It offers more features, can be played on more platforms, and is available three days sooner. If you decide those things aren’t important to you, the standard edition might be your choice at a lower price point.

  • Will Madden 17 Be Featured On The Nintendo Switch?

    2017 will most definitely be an exciting time for gamers with the upcoming Nintendo Switch due to arrive in March. Whilst it has had such a build up though, will we be seeing Madden 17 on what could be one of the newest major game consoles of our generation?

    EA Games has of course already been listed as a partner for Switch, announced way back in October 2016. But, as of yet only NBA 2K18 and FIFA have been announced officially out of the EA Sports section of games.

    Does this mean we won't be seeing Madden on the Switch then? Maybe not!

    Madden games are usually released around August. With the last having been released in August, maybe EA are worried that they've already lost too much time on the platform with the current game, and could be waiting to include it with Madden 18? This is probably one of the more likely situations also. By August the Switch will have had 5 months in circulation - hence EA will be able to get an idea of how successful it is by then. But, then again, the same can be said for them with waiting for NBA 2K18 (due to be released in September).

    If we look back, Madden NFL 13 was the last Madden game to be featured on a Nintendo console (being the Wii). On the other hand, EA hasn't released Madden on PC since Madden NFL 08. It's quite possible that this reduces the likelihood of them risking releasing it on the Switch. But it can definitely be said that EA are always willing to test their games on many platforms, as we've seen with the rise of their mobile (iOS and Android) game called Madden Mobile.

    Most likely, EA will first see how successful their sales for NBA 2K18 and FIFA are on the Switch before we see Madden featured as well. With it's current hype though, it's more than likely to be a success and it'll be interesting none-the-less to see how long it takes for us to see a Madden game featured on it! Besides, who wouldn't love the idea of being able to play Madden on the go, with the option of some Nintendo classics just for fun?
