NFL fans are now patiently waiting for the release of Madden 24, soaking up any official news that comes their way regarding the new title.
If you're an Xbox gamer, you'll want to know what Madden 24 has to offer on the next-generation console, the Xbox Series X|S.
Well, we're here to help. Find out everything you need to know below.
EA has not yet confirmed the official release date for Madden 24.
Judging from the releases of recent editions of the game, we expect Madden 24 to hit the shelves in mid-August, perhaps on Friday, August 18.
The Xbox Series X|S version will be available at launch.
The price for Madden 24 on the Xbox Series X|S has not yet been confirmed.
However, we have a pretty good idea of how much it will cost judging from last year's pricing.
Madden 23 on the Xbox Series X|S was priced at £69.99 at launch.
You can expect the same price tag to be put on this year's version of the game.
Madden 24 on Xbox Series X|S
Madden 24 will be optimised for Xbox Seris X|S.
This means that you can expect the game to showcase unparalleled load times and heightened visuals.
Games that have been optimised for Xbox Series X|S use the full power of the new consoles to deliver higher, steadier framerates at up to 120FPS while playing.
The Xbox Velocity Architecture combines a custom SSD and integrated software to greatly decrease load times both in and out of games, meaning you spend more time playing and less time waiting.
Will Madden 24 have cross-play?
The short answer is that we don't know yet.
Whilst cross-play was not available on Madden 23, there is optimism among the NFL community that the next title in the series will include the feature.
EA implemented cross-play for the latest FIFA game and with fans crying out for it to be added to Madden 24, we could see their prayers answered.
Ahead of the implementation of cross-play into FIFA, EA carried out a large-scale testing period, so we can expect to hear news of the same with Madden, should the feature be added.
Madden 24 Is The Most Important Title In Franchise History
According to plenty of reports, Madden 24 will either "make or break" the gaming franchise.
The title has been the only NFL game for years, having a stronghold over the market.
In the opinion of many fans, the lack of competition led to a slow decline in the game quality.
Some big errors that have taken place in past years have also made fans a little bit angry.
After an update of Madden 23 made many players lose their Franchise mode saves, EA was met with heavy backlash from the community.
To once again fall in the good graces of the Madden community, EA will have to deliver a groundbreaking game.
