EA announces date for Madden NFL 12 demo, discusses how lock-out talks affected gameplay

Posted on July 27, 2011 AT 04:55pm

With the full release of Madden NFL 12 pushed back until the end of August, the long-running Madden release date of the second Tuesday of the month will now have no Madden for fans.

Actually, that isn’t quite true, as EA announced that that day – August 9th – will now play host to the Madden NFL 12 demo. The demo will hit for both the PS3 and Xbox 360, and will feature the Green Bay Packers versus the Chicago Bears.

So how will the recent talks in the NFL affect the game? A representative from EA Sports said that the game’s franchise mode will work under previous collective bargaining rules, as there was not enough time to make the changes to the game, and those changes would be too complex to add later via a patch.

On the other hand, all of the free agent dealings that are to occur in the coming weeks will be reflected in the game via a day-one patch.
