The 100th season of the NFL kicked off last night (condolences Bears fans), and EA is celebrating with a free trial for Madden NFL 20 that runs throughout this weekend. You can download the free trial right now and play until September 8 to get a taste of the new features and game modes on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The free trial also coincides with the release of a brand new game mode in Madden 20 called Superstar KO. This wacky new mode streamlines the Madden experience with five-minute games that feature truncated playbooks, cooperative 3-on-3 action, and celebrity coaches like DJ Khaled.
“Madden NFL 20 is an improved version of the annualized professional football series that excels in some areas and leaves something to be desired in others,” Eddie Makuch said in GameSpot’s Madden 20 review. “The new QB1 career mode–which includes a barebones NCAA football experience–overall feels like a half-baked idea that doesn’t deliver anything meaningful or interesting. When it comes to the on-the-field action, however, the new X-Factor and Superstar abilities shake up the familiar gameplay formula to give seasoned players and newcomers alike a fresh way to scheme plays and orchestrate strategy on both sides of the ball.”
