Electronic Arts has announced it will be making Madden NFL 20 free-to-play later this week on PS4 and Xbox One. Following the news that Baltimore Ravens QB and unanimous Lamar Jackson will be the cover star of this year's Madden NFL 21, Electronic Arts has announced that the most recent release in the annual sports game franchise will be free-to-play for a limited time.
According to EA, the free-to-play trial -- which will run from April 23 to April 26 -- is to celebrate the imminent NFL Draft. And with Madden NFL hype high following the aforementioned reveal, now couldn't be a better time to get some lapsed fans back into the Madden grind before Madden NFL 21 drops this August.
At the moment of publishing, it's unclear if this free-to-play trial will include the full game, however, since there's no specification about this, it's safe to assume the free trial includes the entire game. That said, this is just a free trial, not a free download. This means that if you want to keep playing after April 26, you will need to cop the title in full.
