As part of an effort to promote the NFL’s virtual Pro Bowl this year, EA Sports’ professional football game Madden NFL 21 is now free for a limited time.
The free play weekend started on January 28 and it runs through January 31. During this time, anyone on Xbox One or PS4, as well as PC, can download and play the full game until January 31. In addition, Madden 21’s Superstar Edition is 60% off.
EA historically discounts the newest Madden game around this time, hoping to piggyback on the increased level of interest in football in general due to the forthcoming Super Bowl.
In other news, EA Sports is hosting a virtual Pro Bowl this weekend because the real-world event was canceled due to COVID-19. Players and celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry, Keyshawn Johnson, Bubba Wallace, Marshawn Lynch, Kyler Murray, and Jamal Adams are taking part in the competition.
Additionally, Madden NFL 21 is now available on yet another platform–Google Stadia. It will be followed by FIFA 21 on the streaming platform later on.
Super Bowl LV is scheduled for Sunday, February 7. The Kansas City Chiefs will take on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the title.
