Madden NFL 23 is the latest installment in the long-running soccer video game series, releasing on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms on August 19th. Madden is a year-on-year bestseller, with a steadily growing player base.

Madden 23 will be the first game in the series to release after the death of its namesake, John Madden, in late 2021. The Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster will be celebrated with a new game cover. Madden last provided color commentary for the series in 2009. He was replaced by Sunday Night Football commentator Chris Collinsworth, both in-game and in the broadcast booth.

Like last year’s Madden, Madden 23 will feature an upgraded AI and physics engine called FieldSense for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. FieldSense affects nearly every interaction on the field, from tackles and clashes at the line of scrimmage to touch passes and matchups between a receiver and his defensive back.

The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC versions of the game don’t use Field Sense, but benefit from quality of life changes to the game’s AI, animations, and playbooks.
