EA is getting set to reveal the cover athlete and gameplay for this year’s Madden NFL game. You can check out what it looks like in action on Thursday, May 12.

The game, which is coming on August 23 for current- and last-gen consoles, will be showcased on an episode of ESPN SportsCenter later this week. You can tune in at 6 p.m. Eastern / 3 p.m. Pacific on May 12 to see it live.

Unlike past years, EA isn’t giving us a hint with this announcement. The only thing we have to go on is the logo, with no screenshot to go on.

We’ll update later this week once EA is ready to share.

Our Take
There’s no cover vote this year, which is a departure from the past couple of years. It’ll be interesting to see who EA feels so strongly about that they are willing to bypass the will of the people.
