New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will appear on the front cover of Madden 18.
The popular video game franchise, owned by EA Sports who are also responsible for FIFA, will be available to UK fans on August 25.
The Madden NFL cover was one of the few career accolades that had previously eluded Brady, and now he adds the honor alongside his multiple NFL championships, MVP awards, Pro Bowl appearances and more. This also marks the first time in Madden NFL history that teammates have graced the cover in back-to-back years, after last year’s game featured Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
“The Madden NFL 18 cover is a great honor for me,” said Brady. “Especially since I have been playing the game since growing up next to EA headquarters in the Bay Area. I'm not one to believe in curses, so I'm ready to take the challenge head on like always! It doesn't stand a chance!!!”
Launching worldwide on Friday 25th August 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation®4, EA SPORTS Madden NFL 18 creates a gaming experience like never before, featuring unrivalled visuals, new ways to play and some of the greatest innovation of this generation.
