Tom Brady doesn’t just grace the cover of “Madden NFL 18” following the Patriots’ stunning Super Bowl comeback victory, but he also has claimed the coveted 99 Overall rating and stands above all other quarterbacks in the game.
Brady in “Madden NFL 18” features an Awareness rating of 99. Only one other player in the league (Julio Jones) could make that same claim last season.
The remainder of the quarterbacks’ ratings will be revealed at a later date, as EA Sports details only the top players at each position before it releases the numbers for all players across the league.
EA Sports recently released the first gameplay trailer for “Madden NFL 18,” which includes a quick look at new features like Target Passing, Play Styles, and WR/DB Interactions.
“Madden NFL 18” also introduces the series’ first ever story mode, featuring actors that include Mahershala Ali and Scott Porter, plus appearances from licensed colleges Texas and Oregon.
The game will release August 22 for those who buy the $80 “G.O.A.T” edition; August 25 for the standard edition. Those with an EA Access subscription on Xbox One will be able to start playing a 10-hour trial of the game August 17.
