Xbox One users who own an EA Access membership will be the first to test out the new Madden NFL 17 video game. EA has announced that Madden 17 will have a Play First trial on August 18th. Those who have an EA Access membership will be able to fully play the new football simulation in all of its glory.
New to the game this year are brand new announcers and a brand new ball-carrier gameplay mechanic that promises to make the game more balanced than ever before. So Xbox players have some fresh features to explore.
Unfortunately for PC and PS4 owners who would also like to try the new Madden, EA Access is only available for Xbox One. Not to worry, however, as Madden 17 will release just 5 days after the Play First trial. There’s no word yet on whether or not there will be a demo so that others without an Xbox One can try the game.
Madden NFL 17 will release on August 23rd, 2016. The EA Access Play First trial will be playable throughout the day on August 18th, 5 days before release.
