Madden 20 will be releasing in early August, giving us well over a month before the 2019/20 NFL season kicks off. In this guide to the EA Sports game, we'll be going over details including the Madden 20 release date, all the recent Madden 20 beta information, how you can play the game early in July, and more.
Madden 20 Release Date
The Madden 20 release date is August 2, 2019. Note that as usual with EA's games, this final Madden 20 release date comes after the trial period for the game, which as always will be available through EA Access and Origin Access (more on those below).
How to Play Madden 20 Early
This Madden 20 release date is not just for PS4 and Xbox One, but PC as well. Last year was the first time a Madden game released on the PC, but EA is bringing Madden 20 to the platform once again.
But you can expect Madden 20 to be available through EA/Origin Access. This early access period grants subscribers 10 hours of early access time before the game launches, and should be live on Xbox One/PC right around a week before the final game launches.
If you're an Origin Premier subscriber on PC, however, you'll get access to the full game ahead of launch. Instead of having a 10 hour trial period for Madden 20, you'll be able to play the full game before the final release date of August 2. Right now, we don't yet know how early this will be, but you can become an Origin Premier member for $14.99 a month, or $99.99 for a whole year.
Madden 20 Beta
There was an incredibly limited Madden 20 beta in June, but it's unfortunately now over. Very few people got a chance to access the beta, given that the only way to get a code was through grabbing one as soon as a developer tweeted it out. On top of this, players who did have access weren't allowed to write or broadcast their opinions or gameplay from the Madden 20 beta, so don't expect to hear impressions anywhere online.
Madden 20 Special Editions
We now know the Madden 20 release date, but what about the various editions of the game. There's always methods to play before the final Madden 20 release date, and the special editions of the game below highlight two early access periods.
- Madden 20 Superstar Edition ($80) - This upgraded edition lets you play Madden 20 from July 30, three days early, and also contains 12 Gold Team Ultimate packs, and one Training item.
- Madden 20 Ultimate Superstar Edition ($100) - Also releasing Madden 20 on July 30, the most pricey edition on offer includes one QB Legend for your Ultimate Team, 16 Gold packs, one Core Elite player from any team, and one Training item.
