Here’s a phrase I never thought I’d say: one of the coolest surprises I saw at E3 was a new Madden game. 

I got my hands on Madden NFL 18’s new Longshot story mode, which follows a player’s journey from childhood to college football stardom. It looks and plays like a Telltale Games version of football, and that’s a great thing.

According to creative director Mike Young, the goal of Longshot was to tell a relatable football story while also easing more casual players into Madden. Instead of living out the fantasy of being an NFL superstar, you’ll step into the cleats of small-town Texas quarterback Devin Wade, whose story encompasses everything from backyard catch sessions to career-defining college football games.
