With the new NFL season getting underway this week, EA Sports really wants you to give Madden NFL 24 a chance. In fact, the juggernaut publisher has made the unprecedented move to give the game a free weekend – less than a month after its launch. Starting now through 10th September, you can play the entire title for free, with no limitations or restrictions.
Your immediate reaction may be to assume that the game isn’t selling well, but the Redwood Shores organisation insists that isn’t the case. A press release claims that the latest game set a new single-week franchise record for digital units sold at launch, which is a bit of a wishy-washy statement considering downloadable purchases increase on console every year.
In other loosely related news, the Baltimore Ravens have rocketed to the top of the game’s most used teams list, with newly signed wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr leading the list of most touchdown catches. We liked the game enough in our Madden NFL 24 PS5 review, describing it as another five yards forward for the franchise.
