Referee’s Are Finally In Madden

Many fans have asked for referee’s to be in Madden games to better reflect the realism of NFL games. While EA Sports hasn’t officially announced it anywhere, there were are least 5 instances in their reveal trailer where referee’s were spotted on the field.

Madden 24 Release Date

The standard version of Madden 24 comes out on Friday, August 18th, 2023 while the Deluxe Version comes out 3 days earlier on Tuesday August 15th, 2023.

If you are an EA Play subscriber, you can get access to a free 10 hour gameplay trial starting on Tuesday August 15th with the standard version of the game.

PC Makes The Jump To Current Gen

This will be the first Madden game where the PC version matches the XBOX Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions.

Crossplay Is In Madden 24 (Kind Of)

Crossplay will finally be available for Madden 24 between the XBOX Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC. It is not enabled on the older gen consoles meaning that PlayStation 4 and XBOX One users will not be able to play against each other.

One notable game mode that is not crossplay compatible at launch is franchise mode. We’ve been told that EA is hard at work with the goal of bringing that to Madden NFL 25.

Franchise Mode Updates

Franchise mode didn’t seem to get any groundbreaking new features but there are a lot of incremental changes being implemented this year that hardcore franchise fans will like.

We have a separate article covering Madden 24 franchise mode information.
