Madden 25 by Electronic Arts Hits the Play Store

September 19, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

For all you football fans out there. It looks like Electronic Arts has just launched Madden 25 on Android. It’s available now in the Play Store, for a great price. Yep, it’s free to play. As always there are in-app purchases, but that’s expected from a game from a company like Electronic Arts. Madden 25 is quite big though, it weighs in at about 1.1GB in size. So it’s going to take a while to download, and you’re going to want to be sure you’re on WiFi for this one. Unless you have unlimited data.

I haven’t had a chance to really play it yet, as the game literally just finished downloading on the G2. However the graphics and performance should be a real test to this devices’ Snapdragon 800 and 1080p IPS display. It should be a joy to play. Wonder if I can have the rest of the night off to play Madden 25?

Like we said already, Madden 25 does use in-app purchases, which are called Madden Cash. To celebrate the launch this week, EA is offering 25% off Madden cash. Some of the other features of Madden 25 include the ability to build you’re own team. Some authentic NFL action, play multiple Madden NFL modes, along with new and improved touch controls. In the past Madden has always been a bit awkward to play on a touch screen. It looks like that’s been fixed….at least a little bit.

What’s surprising here is that Madden 25 is compatible with Android 2.0 and above. Usually, Electronic Arts will only allow Android 4.0 and above to play Madden. So it’s great to see the game available to even more Android users. In fact, there’s a review already on the Play Store saying “Holy moly first time I can play Madden on my Android and it’s compatible. 5 stars just for that lol”. So it looks like there’s some good impressions already for Madden 25.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to spend the night playing Madden 25. It’s the only way the Lions can win.
