Get your popcorn ready: Madden 19 HOF cover to feature Terrell Owens

Madden NFL 19 will launch on August 10 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In "Madden NFL 19", a new animation system will deliver increased control and responsiveness. Now, the NFL wide receiver who played from 1996-2010 not only will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, but he will be featured on the cover of the Hall of Fame Edition of the upcoming "Madden NFL 19". Franchise mode will now let players choose between both offensive and defensive schemes, which works with a new progression system for coaches. "Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways".

"We've worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes", said Carlos Guerrero, Senior Producer on the game.

Meanwhile, Ultimate Team has received new training tools, and allows players develop their favorites with new player upgrades.

For more info on this year's game, check out the Madden NFL 19 website. We're waiting to hear more about the full functionality of these additions, as well as more information on the Ultimate Team's "Solo Battles" that allow you to compete for a spot on an online leaderboard by completing solo challenges. Owens also was featured on the cover of the 2003 game "NFL Blitz Pro". And if you pre-order it anywhere, you get access to the game three days early (August 7). EA Access members will also receive a 10 percent discount when they pre-order the game digitally on the same platform. It's notable that there is no mention of a story mode returning to Madden after it made its debut a year ago.
