Now Playing: Madden NFL 18 Video Review

If you're willing to pay extra, you can start playing Madden NFL 18 right now on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The game's GOAT Edition ($80/£80/$120 AU) launched today, August 22, multiple days ahead of the game's official release on August 25.

The GOAT Edition comes with a number of digital extras, in addition to the benefit of early access. You get seven Madden Ultimate Team Squad Packs, one Elite-level GOAT Player, 2,500 contracts, and one MUT Uniform Pack. Those who pre-order even the standard edition will get the Elite player and five Squad Packs.

Madden NFL 18 has been playable on Xbox One for EA Access members since August 17 as part of a 10-hour trial.

GameSpot's Madden NFL 18 review scored the pro football game a 9/10. Reviewer Alex Newhouse said, "It is a marked improvement over the last several entries in the series."

In addition to a nice visual boost from the franchise's first-ever use of the Frostbite Engine, Madden NFL 18 introduces a story mode called Longshot that features Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali.
