Electronic Arts announced Madden NFL 19 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will launch on August 10.

Anyone who pre-orders the Hall of Fame Edition will get access to the game on August 7, while EA Access members on the Xbox One will be able to play the game for a limited number of hours starting on August 2.

"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, a senior producer of Madden NFL 19. "Real Player Motion technology combined with all new franchise-building tools like Positional Archetypes and the return of Custom Draft Classes are features that football fans will find fun and engaging. Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways."

Franchise and Ultimate Team game modes have been reworked for Madden NFL 19. Franchise mode will let players choose between offensive and defensive schemes. Ultimate Team now has new training tools.

Wow, that's an announcement I was DEFINITELY not expecting.

Unless there is a MASSIVE upgrade to franchise mode, I will wait until 2020.

Question. Does anyone know if these modern madden games run at 60 FPS on base PS4/Xbox 1? I remember the ps2 ones were and they still look good today due to the smoothness on a good crt.

Hmm...no Switch again. I could understand 2018 but 2019 should have been a no brainer. Or maybe they just know their games won't do all that well on Switch, which is understandable.

Is the lack of PC unusual?

Huh, that is strange. I kinda thought that would be a given. I'm sure it'll launch with the PS4/Xbone versions. If not, that'd be unusual indeed.

@KrspaceT they dropped the PC version years ago.

Yup, the PC version was canned because they didn't like the fact that on PC, you can mod in current rosters.
