‘I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games,’ said Brown. ‘There’s a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year’s games, it’s clear that business is not just booming, but I’m also among the all-time greatest with these honors.’
He’s known for his touchdown celebrations
The Madden 99 Club is only for players who are the best of the best. Only an elite few players are rated 99 overall in the game.
‘AB has taken the league by storm the past few years and is arguably one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL,’ said Joshua Rabenovets, Sr. Brand Director at EA Sports. ‘His game is hot, he’sgot a ton of personality on and off the field – he was an easy choice for the Madden NFL 19 cover.’
A new system called Real Player Motion is coming to Madden NFL 19 this year, giving players more control of in-game moves and better animations. So, Antonio Brown’s personality, mannerisms, and unique celebrations should be able to be shown off really well.
Madden’s story mode is making a return this year. Longshot: Homecoming will be giving you more control over fictional characters Devin Wade and Colt Cruise’s quest through the NFL with new storylines, more ways to impact the story, and the ability to continue their story into the Franchise and Ultimate Team modes.
As for Madden NFL Overdrive, which Brown is also the cover athlete for, you’ll be choosing your Captain and Coach, building an All-Pro team, and battling rivals in the PvP mode.
