Weekend Console Download Deals for Sept. 10: Madden NFL 22 free trial

If you're ready for some football, this is the weekend to try it for free.


Dun-dun-dun-DUUUUUUN! Are you ready for some football? Are you ready to play a football video game? There are a lot of those out there! Are you ready to play a football game with the NFL license with current rosters? That's a little harder to find. In fact, there's pretty much only one choice. "Do I seriously have to pay for Madden?" the hypothetical reader might be asking, especially given that it's just more of the same as the previous Maddens? (Which is particularly impressive given that this year's Madden was supposedly built for next-gen consoles.)

The good news is, you don't have to pay for Madden NFL 22 this weekend. There's a free trial running from now through Monday, so go ahead and get a taste of the action. Judging by our review, a taste will probably be all you want.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
