Football fans rejoice –to commemorate the launch of the much anticipated Madden NFL 15 game on August 26, EA Sports will also release a mobile game! It may not be the realistic grid-iron experience that followers of the franchise have come to expect, but if you need a little fix while on the go it should do the trick nicely.
While details regarding what the game will look like and what might be included are a little sparse right now, we do know that you have the option of taking on individual challenges with Live Events or choosing to commit to the traditional 16-game season. Game movement is controlled using a context-sensitive action button combined with a virtual analog stick to provide movement, making Madden Mobile very touch-screen friendly!
Also expected inside the Mobile Madden app is a mode that will take on the spirit of Madden Ultimate Team –a collectible card game that pulls the players from packs so you can build a team from those resources.
A soft launch ahead of the actual release gave way to screenshots showing how beautiful the graphics are, but it also revealed that the game is free to play (which sounds like a good thing, but it means that the usual in-app trappings of currency and stamina will be present).
