Before the NFL Draft which happened last night (you probably didn’t even notice because of Avengers Endgame), EA announced their newest cover athlete for Madden 20. Patrick Mahomes who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs and was last season’s Most Valuable Player got the honors.
Now the question (like every year) comes to “Will Pat Mahomes be the next victim of the Madden curse”? We sure hope not, because he was undoubtedly the most explosive player last season. Along with announcing the next cover athlete, EA also revealed news on some new Madden features. There will be a new mechanic that will give the best players Superstar X-Factors. There will be 50 X-Factors and are described as “once-a-season moments that only the league’s best can pull off”.
We will be able to see more of how these X-factors work next week as EA will feature Madden during their live streams starting on May 2nd at 7 pm EST. Check out the Madden reveal trailer below featuring the cover athlete Pat Mahomes below.
