Today, Electronic Arts announced that Pittsburgh Steelers Wide Receiver Antonio Brown will be the cover athlete for this year’s Madden NFL 19, which will be released on August 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition, he will be the cover athlete for the mobile adaptation Madden NFL Overdrive, which will be released on August 15 for iOS and Android devices.
The star, known for his entertaining end zone celebrations, was also announced as part of the Madden 99 Club last month, taking his place amongst an elite group of players rated 99 OVR.
Madden NFL 19 is set to push players onto the path of gridiron greatness with more precision and control than ever before worldwide on August 10th. Want to tackle the gridiron on the go? Rebuilt from the ground up to deliver a completely revamped football experience, Madden NFL Overdrive is the new update for mobile available August 15th, 2018 on iOS and Android.
“I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games,” said Brown. “There’s a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year’s games, it’s clear that business is not just booming, but I’m also among the all-time greatest with these honors.”
Fans eager to control AB and other NFL stars will see the immediate benefits of Real Player Motion in Madden NFL 19. RPM technology will give fans even more control of in-game moves and immersive animations, making AB and other players’ move and act like their real-life counterparts as they charge through the game, showcasing their unique personalities, mannerisms, and of course, celebrations.
“AB has taken the league by storm the past few years and is arguably one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL,” said Joshua Rabenovets, Sr. Brand Director at EA SPORTS. “His game is hot, he’s got a ton of personality on and off the field – he was an easy choice for the Madden NFL 19 cover.”
Fans can also look forward to the continuation of last year’s first-ever Madden NFL story-mode with the return of Longshot: Homecoming. Players will have more control over Devin Wade and Colt Cruise’s football quest with more NFL gameplay, more ways to impact the story, new storylines, and the ability to continue their Longshot journey within Franchise and Ultimate Team.
