EA Sports has released the first Madden 15 teaser trailer and it stars a player you would not expect.
Carolina Panthers star Luke Kuechly is front and centre of the campaign and the 30 second video shows him transforming from the real life Kuechly to EA's generated linebacker.
The release date for the game has been confirmed as well. EA's newest football simulation will be hitting the shelves on August 26 in North America and August 29 in the EU for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
EA discussed the new game in further detail on their website:
:"Madden NFL 15 delivers everything fans need to own their rivals on both sides of the field, including the most immersive defensive gameplay control in franchise history. Like the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks, you can win championships and bask in the glory of success by building a great defense fit to challenge the best offenses in the game.
Fans will also experience an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day like never before with dramatic all-new camera angles, as well as dynamic pre-game and halftime features. It’s not just football, it’s Madden Season.
This year EA is once again collaborating with ESPN to give fans the opportunity to select which player will grace the cover of Madden NFL 15. In light of last year’s record-breaking vote, fans can look forward to a highly-competitive contest featuring some big-name matchups and intense rivalries. Fans can tune in to the NFL Draft on ESPN and NFL Network on May 8 at 8pm ET for a special Cover Vote announcement."
