Learn the Madden NFL 18 and EA Access release date schedule.


Madden NFL 18, like every other Madden game before it, is guaranteed to be a huge hit with fans of the genre. Like most sports games, you know you’re buying it every year even if some iterations are a bit underwhelming. The only thing left to figure out, is which edition you’re going to buy, and when the Madden NFL 18 and EA Access release dates are.

Madden NFL 18 EA Access Release Date

Madden NFL 18 will release on EA Access on August 17, 2017. As of right now, Madden NFL 18 will only be available on EA Access if you own an Xbox One. PS4 does not have an EA Access program, and PC is not getting a Madden NFL 18 release. The EA Access program will allow players to enjoy 10 hours of game time with Madden NFL 18, and will give them the chance to buy the full game for 10 percent off.

The EA Access program currently costs players $4.99 per month, or $29.99 per year. You can cancel this subscription any time, so it’s possible to buy a one-month pass, play Madden NFL 18 through EA Access on August 17, and then cancel.

Madden NFL 18 Release Date

Madden NFL 18 will release worldwide for the PS4 and Xbox One on August 25, 2017. However, players who pre-order the G.O.A.T. Edition will be able to play on August 22, 2017. The G.O.A.T Edition comes with a laundry list of bonuses for players, especially if you’re planning to get into MUT, and we know you are. You can pre-order the Madden NFL 18 G.O.A.T. Edition through the PlayStation Store or the Xbox One Marketplace, among other places.

Madden NFL 18 will be the first Madden game not to release on the PS3 or Xbox 360 since Madden NFL 2005.
