The legendary EA Sports National Football League franchise is back, developed by EA Tiburon and published by EA Sports. The Madden NFL 2018 introduced us to the story-focused single-player mode called Longshot which focused on two football players, Colt Cruise and Devin Wade; it even included a performance by Academy Award Winner Mahershala Ali.
This saga carried on in Madden NFL 2019 with Joey King and Rob Schneider from the Netflix movie Kissing Booth. But Madden 20 will not feature Longshot mode. Instead, it will feature a mode called Face of the Franchise QB1, in this mode, players will need to take the role of a backup quarterback at a big shot college school who has to step up in the College Football Playoff.
Madden 20 will feature college football, and that is a big deal for fans of the Madden franchise because it hasn’t been featured in a very long time, the main reasons being copyright and lawsuits. Madden 20 will feature ten colleges.
The face of The Franchise QB1 isn’t the only feature in Madden 20, it will also feature the Superstar X-Factor, a progression based system that lets players perform awesome tricks with skilled players, it modernized the offensive playbooks, and it adds marching bands, amazing soundtracks, and player celebrations after the touchdown.
The cover player for Madden 20 will be Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
