Buying Madden 21 on PS4 means you will get a free upgrade to PS5. This program is being labeled “Dual Entitlement” by EA and accounts for FIFA 21 players too.

Still, there is some reasonable hesitancy among the PlayStation community about buying the game immediately on PS4 or waiting for the PS5.


EA premiered the Madden 21 official reveal trailer on 16 June, and while some fans were underwhelmed with what was shown, the followup post going into the development process and new changes has led to plenty of hype.

Face of the Franchise

Thanks to the power of consoles like the PS4, we’ve seen some huge leaps in both graphics and gameplay. It appears that almost yearly, we’re seeing more depth than ever before.

With Franchise mode, and the “Rise to Fame” subheading, you start with your character in High School before progressing through College and into the NFL.

We won’t spoil any surprises here, but it’s safe to say it’s looking like one of the most in-depth modes to date.
