Madden is getting a story mode with Mahershala Ali


Unveiled at E3

Academy award winning actor Mahershala Ali will be joining the Madden franchise as part of the “Longshot” story mode unveiled today at E3. Evidently you won’t actually play, it’ll just be a straight RPG dealing with your quest to get drafted.

It wasn’t the most exciting opening announcement overall as the trailer is another attempt by EA to make their sports career modes more (overly) drama-centric, but it’s something that’s coming toMadden NFL 18 on August 25. It’s also another extra thing to do if you’re sick of buying $60 yearly roster updates.

I hope he does the signatureMahershala Ali smirk, which I can’t get enough of.
