EA Sports announces this year's Madden 99 Club.
We're inching closer to the release of the latest EA Sports Madden football game, which means new trailers, game features and player ratings will continue to leak ahead of the August 10th release. Speaking of the player ratings, we've learned that there are actually seven players who earned the coveted 99 overall rating, up from the three that were reported earlier this month.
According to EA Sports, this year's Madden 99 club includes quarterbacks Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Antonio Brown, tight end Rob Gronkowski, linebackers Von Miller and Luke Kuechly, and defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
Madden NFL 19 hits shelves on August 10th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but fans can also pre-order the standard edition now and receive their choice of one Elite Player from their favorite team, as well as five Gold Team Fantasy Packs.
EA Sports recently revealed that Terrell Owens will appear on the cover of the Hall of Fame Edition in his #81 Dallas Cowboys jersey.
Fans who pre-order the $80 Hall of Fame Edition of Madden NFL 19 receive:
- 3-day early access to the full game on August 7th
- All the benefits of the standard edition
- Two custom uniforms in Madden Ultimate Team
- One Training Pack
- Choice of five Elite Hall of Fame Legends, and more
According to IGN, "two notable enhancements that EA Sports is promising for Madden 19 include upgrades to Connected Franchises and improved player animation, like a running back pushing the pile upfront and cutting better against the defense."
“We’ve worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes,” said Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Producer on Madden NFL 19. “Real Player Motion technology combined with all new franchise-building tools like Positional Archetypes and the return of Custom Draft Classes are features that football fans will find fun and engaging. Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways.”
