As you will remember, Madden NFL 18 will feature a story mode called Longshot, which will tell the story of the fictional player Devin Wade and his rise to sporting success. This mode will rely on kinematics and will seek to integrate properly into the experience by offering a different component to the usual game modes. As part of the title promotion campaign, EA Sports introduced the behind-the-scenes Longshot mode.
Today, Electronic Arts presented the video behind Longshot, Madden NFL 18 story mode, on the official EA Sports channel on YouTube. James Roch Lemon II (J.R. Lemon) – former player of the Oakland Raiders and today actor – is the one who gives us the introduction to the video because it is the one in charge of giving voice and movements to Devin Wade, protagonist of the history. Lemon highlighted the work done around Longshot to offer an interesting story from a cinematic point of view and the way it integrates into the gaming experience, as it allows to go beyond the realism to which the games of the series have us accustomed. Mike Young, writer and director of Longshot, highlighted the core of its history as it will feature dramatic dyes typical of the struggle of a player who is looking to fulfill a dream and will have to face the obstacles that face him.
The story mode of Madden NFL 18 will feature players like Dan Marino and actors like Scott Porter, who will accompany Devin Wade on his way to success in the NFL.
Madden NFL 18 will arrive on August 25 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
