With NFL legend Barry Sanders (not Larry Sanders. That wouldn't work) making the cover for Madden NFL 25 (Madden NFL 14 in all but name), EA Sports has released the first batch of screens and a 'Run Free' playbook gameplay trailer from the latest American Football iteration, that'll be celebrating the franchise's 25th year.

Cover star Sanders won the poll to feature on Madden NFL 25's box with 58% of the 40 million votes cast. In other non-cover related Madden news, this year's version promises more back-of-the-box features, with a new precision modifier that enables players to unleash 30 new moves and "string together devastating combos." Wait, is this a fighting game?

The Infinity Engine introduced last year has been polished and introduces an all-new Force Impact system, while there's more overall improvements with hard run cutting for quick changes in direction, improved run blocking and more. EA calls it Infinity Engine 2. Wow.

Madden NFL 25 is scheduled to launch on August 27th. You can check out all 14 new screenshots in the gallery, some of which we've pasted below. You can also watch the 'Run Free' playbook gameplay video below for a closer look at all the gridiron action. Hut! Hut! And so on.

@#4 - There won't be a 2025 game. If there is, it will possibly be in a different developers hands as the rights will be up for grabs by then. EA is also talking about a new game every other year so this new numbered system could mean no longer naming the games after years. The next one might even be NFL 26, NFL "Insert Subtitle Here" or anything other than 2015.

RG3! RG3! RG3!... Sorry about that. I'm a Redskins fan, and I like seeing the RG3 parts.

See, now i can't get this game, i'm a packer fan and i feel segregated. Lucky I wasn't going to buy it anyways, since I have Madden 12, and it's pretty much the same game.

So have there been 25 games, or just 25 years? (asking cos I sure don't remember 25 of them) Which console had the 1st madden? SNES? Any game-history buffs out there know?

I think that is stupid that Barry Sanders is on the cover. Aftera huge QB year like this past year they should have put one of the rookie star QB's on the cover.

Russel Wilson, Kollin Kaepernick (Not a rookie, but close enough), Andrew Luck, RG3. I mean cmon.

@16 Are you retarded? It's a big anniversary release, why the hell would they put a rookie on the cover? They want to sell to people that aren't hardcore football fans too, nobody is going to know who Russel Wilson is.

@17 Isn't he the Seahawk's Quarterback who started last year? And I'm not a hardcore football fan. :/

Though I think they should've done Marino, Montana or Aikman.

@17 If you don't know russel Wilson chances are you don't know barry sanders. Do you really think box art will generate that much more sales for madden.

Hey honey I don't play football games but that's barry sanders on the cover lets buy it.
Ok, sounds good
This will look great on the mantle

In the first screen, Shields' feet seem to be broken and/or fused to the ground. Glitch in a promo screen? C'mon, EA.
