With less than 100 days until the return of professional football, the EA Sports has officially revealed Madden NFL 24, the next entry in its annualized NFL sim. There’s always a lot of speculation and debate surrounding who will and should grace the cover of the latest game, and we now have an answer. Josh Allen will be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 24, and is the first Buffalo Bills player to do so.

The Madden NFL 24 cover was revealed in a post by the superstar QB himself. The standard cover is a close-up shot of Allen in the snow, while the Deluxe Edition depicts him jumping into a crowd of fans at Highmark Stadium.

In addition to the cover reveal, EA Sports announced some of the new features and modes included in Madden NFL 24. This includes the return of Superstar Mode, in which fans create their own player, working their way through the Combine, Draft, and an NFL career. Madden NFL 24 also features dozens of new mini-games, including moving targets and destructible targets.

Franchise mode has been updated with the ability to relocate teams and edit their uniforms and logos. EA Sports has also increased the trade slots to six, and promises improvements to contract restructuring and free agency.
