EA Sports are already starting to ramp up the hype for the latest iteration of the hugely popular American football game, with Madden NFL 23 release dates, trailers, and platforms finally being unveiled.
The fan-favourite American football game releases around the same time every year and 2022 is no different. It rose to popularity back in 1988 and has released a new version of the game around August each year.
With Madden NFL 23 release dates, trailers, and pricing all to be discussed, let’s waste no further time and dive straight into it.
Madden NFL 23: release date
It took a while, but at last, we have a Madden NFL 23 release date – set for Friday, August 19, 2022.
While this is still a good few months away, it gives EA enough time to generate the hype needed to produce yet another successful Madden NFL launch.
Madden NFL 23 Beta
Like previous versions of the game, users will be able to sign-up for a chance to play the Beta version of Madden’s latest NFL game.
As you’d expect, the Beta leaves out plenty of the game’s main features, including both Franchise mode and MUT (Madden Ultimate Mode). That said, the Beta is a great way to get a taste of what’s to come from FieldSENSE and other new major game mechanics.
As Madden NFL 23 Beta will be closed, there is no definitive way of guaranteeing you get a chance to play the new American football title early. That said, many of the industry’s largest content creators have been running code giveaways – so there’s a chance of grabbing yourself a copy through that method.
Madden NFL 23 pre order
Like every year, Madden NFL 23 is already available for pre order across the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, EA App, Epic Games Store, Steam, and Origin.
There will likely be a bunch of rewards for becoming an early-adopter of the game, including Madden NFL 23 early access, MUT packs, coins, and more.
