Saber Interactive’s arcade adaptation of American football Wild Card Football will squeeze in four famous faces from the Hall of Fame, with pre-orders including the Legacy Players Kickoff Pack at launch. Those who reveal their interest in the wacky sports game ahead of its 10th October release will receive Dan Marino, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, and Walter Payton – all in throwback threads.

There are three editions available to pre-order from today, all of which include the aforementioned titans of the sport:

  • Standard Edition: Grab the full base game.
  • Deluxe Edition: Get the base game, the Season Pass, the Blazing Bones Outfit, and 10 Card Packs.
  • Ultimate Edition: Includes everything in the Deluxe Edition, plus 10 Legendary Outfits.

For those of you who missed the memo, Wild Card Football is the yin to Madden NFL 24’s yang. You’ll be able to build your dream roster from thousands of officially licensed players, and then customise everything from your playbooks to your uniforms. The big twist here, however, are the eponymous Wild Cards – effectively power-ups that will turn the tides of a game in an instant.
