EA today announced the latest installment of its popular and long-running football franchise, Madden NFL 22. Madden NFL 22 is poised to look and feel better than ever thanks to new next-gen features such as “Gameday Atmosphere” and “Next Gen Movement 2.0,” but unfortunately for PC gamers, these benefits will be exclusive to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. EA did something similar with FIFA 21 and explained that it had chosen to restrict next-gen features from the PC platform to keep the minimum specification down so it’d be accessible to a wider range of players/systems. Developed by EA Tiburon, Madden NFL 22 will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC (Origin, Steam), and Google Stadia on August 20.

Madden NFL 22 leverages the power of next generation consoles to deliver the raw energy, emotion, and unpredictability of the NFL through brand-new Dynamic Gameday, which impacts gameplay across every mode. Whether installing a weekly gameplan in Franchise or going head-to-head in Play Now, games in Madden NFL 22 will feel fresh with a deeper level of strategy and storytelling in each match-up and in each stadium.
