As with every year, there’s a new Madden NFL instalment coming out by EA. Usually there’s complaints about the game being the same but with a different number in the title, but this year there’s a new mode called The Yard. And, if you’re one of those who always complains about each instalment being the same, you can enjoy an EA Access trial before committing to a purchase. Meanwhile, if you love the franchise dearly, you can get early access for Madden NFL 21 by pre-ordering the correct copy.
If you’re planning to buy a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, you’ll be happy to know that PS4 players will be able to upgrade Madden NFL 21 to PS5 for free. And, for Microsoft, EA have extended their Xbox Series X upgrade offer, and both of these options means you won’t have to pay unlike certain games such as Control with its Ultimate Edition.
For those of you who love the franchise or are tentative about purchasing the newest instalment, here you’ll discover how to get Early Access and enjoy the EA Access trial.
What is the Madden 21 EA Access release date?
There is no official release date for Madden NFL 21 on EA Access.
However, according to speculation, the release date for Madden NFL 21 on EA Access will be August 21st.
This is by no means official, but the aforementioned day is speculated because trials for new Electronic Arts releases typically join their subscription platform seven days before release.

When the game does join EA Access, you should be able to enjoy a trial that lasts for ten hours.
