EA expands upon Madden NFL 20's gamey X-Factor superstar abilities

June 08, 2019 1 min read

Madden 20 was unveiled back in April, but EA Tiburon took the stage today during the EA Play E3 event to give us a few more details beyond "the cover athlete is Patrick Mahomes."

We got a little more on Face of the Franchise, which is the new campaign style concept that takes you from the college playoffs through the pro drafting process: it looks like it dials up the drama not unlike a lot of "create-a-wrestler" modes in WWE games.

X-Factor abilities are coming, which make superstars even more impactful (Alvin Kamara and JuJu Smith-Schuster, the latter of which who was on-hand at the event, were singled out specifically), like the "satellite" ability that lets you improve your success rate against one-on-one coverage, and powers that grant you more hot route options. You can check those teases out in the gallery below: there's a lot of potential for polarization here but it's also kind of exciting for Madden to do something weird like this?

Madden NFL 20 arrives on August 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, a full month before the NFL's opening kickoff on September 5 with the Packers versus the Bears.
