Madden NFL 15 coming August 26, fans vote on cover athlete

EA Sports has announced Madden NFL 15, set to arrive on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on August 26th. Set 10 years before the events of last year's Madden NFL 25, the prequel promises to delve deeper into the back stories of fan-favorite characters of the franchise. How did he get that scar? How did those two meet? What's inside the box? All secrets will be revealed.

Of course, that's not actually what's happening in this year's game. As always, the annualized franchise must offer fans something new. This year, it's "an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day like never before with dramatic all-new camera angles, as well as dynamic pre-game and halftime features."

In addition, fans will be able to vote for the cover athlete, beginning May 8th. Details will be revealed during the NFL Draft on ESPN and NFL Network at 8PM ET. "Fans can look forward to a highly-competitive contest featuring some big-name matchups and intense rivalries," EA promises.
