Cover Story: Madden NFL 25
When the dog days of summer make you yearn for the crisp fall air, and nothing sounds better than brat cooked in a parking lot, you know football season is getting close. And every year, EA Sports has the cure for those summertime blues with the annual release of Madden NFL.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise, and EA has pulled out all the stops to give players the best Madden yet. Our cover story shows how the developers created an all new running system, making this the most balanced football videogame ever. We also provide a bit of insight into the 25th anniversary cover athlete, Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders. Plus, we give you a peek at the new Connected Franchises mode, where you can now be the owner of your very own NFL team!
If you’re looking forward to this year’s NFL season as much as we are then huddle up with Walmart GameCenter issue #12, available for FREE on iTunes or at your local Walmart!
5 to Play
That’s not all though, each month the editors choose five games we think players should pay special attention to, and let those who made the game tell you why. This month we dive into the expansive Disney Infinity, check out what Sam Fisher is up to in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and take a walk on the wild side of open-world games with Saints Row IV.
Those who are looking for a longer experience may want to check out Tales of Xillia, the latest in Namco Bandai’s Tales series of RPGs, or perhaps you’ll prefer some strategy with Pikmin 3. Whatever type of games you like to play, Walmart GameCenter magazine has you covered.

And finally, we share one of the PS4 launch titles that have us really excited, Knack. Take control of a hero who can change size and abilities by absorbing the relics around him. Can you survive the war with the goblins? We think so, with Knack on your side.
