E3 2017: EA Reveals “Longshot” Story Mode for Madden 18
It was revealed by Electronic Arts in its E3 2017 briefing, a new trailer for Madden NFL 18, revealing a new mode called “Longshot.” This feature is like a story mode, Longshot follows an aspiring football player trying to make it to the NFL but having a hard time making it there.
Check out the official reveal trailer of Madden 18’s new mode called “Longshot”, featuring the story of the game:
In the trailer we can see how the main character on his last legs and his prospects aren’t looking good. But with the help of a character played by actor Mahershala Ali, players will persevere and climb their way into the highest level of the competition.
It appears that college football will be a part of the Longshot Mode, as the trailer showed two licensed teams, Oregon and Texas. EA’s NCAA Football series was put on indefinite hiatus years ago after a lawsuit.
Longshot seems to be like FIFA’s The Journey mode, which follows an up-and-coming footballer’s journey to the highest level of competition.
Madden 18 launches in August for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It features New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the cover.
