EA Sports will be releasing Madden 21 later this summer, and on Tuesday, they posted a look at the cover of the Lamar Jackson MVP edition. You can check out the cover below, followed by the latest trailer video for the game. Jackson released the following statement with the release:

“I grew up playing Madden and owned every copy I could get my hands on, so to be on the cover of Madden NFL 21 is a dream come true, especially when the cover represents so much of my story. The welcome to the Madden family from around the league and from fans has been phenomenal and I think people will have a lot of fun with the new features coming in this year’s game.”

EA’s press release for the game states the game will include “improved ball-carrier mechanics for all out control in the running back and receiver positions and enhanced D-Line mechanics that make the pass rush positions more responsive,” among other things.

EA is offering an early August 25th release date if you pre-order now.
