That’s the only way it’s going to happen. Tom Brady’s first game back? I feel sorry for the Browns’ Defensive Coordinator.

Fire up your PS4 or Xbox One and download the full game of Madden NFL 17 and play free through October 10.

From the EA press release:

New tiered skill moves for runners provide more opportunity to shake the defense and break off big plays, while automatic skill moves on lower difficulty levels give everyone the chance to have amazing moments out on the field. Franchise players looking to quickly advance through a season can take advantage of Play the Moments – the fastest way to play Madden NFL 17 – to jump into the game at key third downs, game-winning drives and more. Would-be GMs can utilize new Big Decisions to manage every facet of their team in the quickest and most convenient way ever. No matter your play style or favored game mode, this year you have the tools to take your team all the way. Jump in and enjoy what IGN termed “the deepest Franchise mode” Madden NFL has ever seen.

Yep, sounds like Madden. Man, thinking about football video games just makes me want another NCAA entry. But that won’t be happening anytime soon.

EA Access vault expands

Not big on football? EA has your back. Today, EA Access is getting a throwback pack. Need your Bejeweled fix? Bejeweled 2 and 3 are there. Other classic games include:

Heavy Weapon
Feeding Frenzy
Feeding Frenzy 2
Zuma

And if you’re just a little more patient, three of EA’s biggest games over the past 12 months are also coming. EA Sports UFC 2, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Star Wars Battlefront are coming later this year. If you skipped Battlefront, be sure to give it a shot. It’s not the deepest shooter out there, but the gameplay is fun. Plus, DICE nails the presentation.

On Origin Access (PC version of EA Access), you’ll get Need for Speed Most Wanted, Ultimate Collection, Crusader: No Remorse and Crusader: No Regret.

The extra games are cool and all, but I’m pumped for October 13th. That’s the day I (and thousands of other Battlefield 1 fans) figure out if we blow through our 10 hour trial in one sitting or try to stretch it to release day.
