Madden 2020 has gotten incredibly positive feedback since its release a few weeks back, and rightfully so. The game play is even more realistic than prior years and the small technical nuances are incredibly precise. Perhaps you are already the king of your Madden circle or you’ve already won multiple Super Bowls in Franchise mode and now you’re looking for a new challenge. Look no more, as EA Sports is dropping Superstar KO mode – available online only for free from September 5th to September 9th.
The new mode allows you to select from 8 pre-made teams, each with different characteristics and corresponding playbooks. Your team could be an all out aerial attack team with a weak pass rush or a run-heavy team with subpar quarterback play and a strong secondary. It’s on you to choose the style that best fits your game. It gets even better from there!
Before the game, there is a brief fantasy draft, where you can add up to three players to your existing team. Players vary from existing superstars like DeAndre Hopkins, to past legends like Lawrence Taylor, and even celebrities like DJ Khaled who is a quarterback. The idea of DJ Khaled suited-up is pretty funny. We assume celebrities would have padded attributes that don’t correspond to their real life talents – imagine Khaled doing wind sprints. The idea is similar to one in NBA 2K games. If the free trial period goes well for EA Sports’ Madden, our guess is the new Superstar KO mode would become available integrated into future Maddens.
