EA Sports Madden 18 is going to feature a new mode that will add a new way for fans to enjoy the long-running NFL video game. This weekend, EA Sports rolled out a feature for the “Longshot” mode which will be similar to “The Journey” in FIFA.
“Longshot” mode will follow the story of Devin Wade, a former top prospect that has been away from the game and is fighting to earn a chance in the league.
“After three years away from the game, play as former five-star high school quarterback, Devin Wade as he takes one last shot to hear his name called on NFL Draft day,” the Madden 18 website says.
The mode will feature characters played by JR Lemon, Scott Porter, Dan Marino and Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali.
Check out the trailer below:
If the mode turns out to be anything like “The Journey,” it could become a permanent fixture for the Madden series moving forward. Let’s hope that it lives up to its potential.
