E3 2017: EA Reveal Madden 18’s Longshot Mode Starring Mahershala Ali

The Moonlight star makes his way to digital American football with Madden 18.

It’s not quite the full-scale orchestra seen for God of War, but it’s not bad. EA introduced Madden 18 at EA Play 2017 with a drumming band.

They showed off Longshot, the Journey-esque story mode. It looks like FIFA 17’s narrative-driven experiment was a success.


It looks pretty well made, and if I’m not mistaken, stars Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali.

Here’s the synopsis:


“Powered by Frostbite, Longshot is Madden NFL’s first-ever cinematic and playable story mode where your decisions lead forgotten prospect, Devin Wade on the pursuit to hear his name called on NFL Draft day.”
