EA Sports has announced that there's a treat in store for NFL fans, or more specifically Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears fans, as the Madden NFL 12 demo is on the way next month, giving you the chance to pit these two teams against one another on the field of play.

The Madden NFL 12 demo will give you a 20-minute four-quarter game to play through, giving you a chance to re-write last year's NFC Championship, which the Packers won. Joystiq notes that the roster will be a little out of date due to the recent settling of the NFL lockout, but EA has confirmed that it'll have a launch day update rolling out to reflect the free-agent changes.

Madden NFL 12 is preparing to go long on August 30th, 2011. You can play the demo from August 9th.

I cannot wait to have my Packers beat the Steelers again. But I would LOVE to take the Bears out. What a great demo EA, 20 minute quarters is the biggest demo you've released for Madden yet! I appreciate it.

Are you able to play as Jay Cutler for the whole demo, or does he quit halfway through?

Bang, unnecessary cheap shot!

GO PACK GO! Repeat! Probably won't be picking up the full game unless it goes on sale for cheap so I'm glad I can get 20 min quarters with my team for free!

I'm actually looking forward to this. I thought Madden 11 was terrible, so hopefully this is better.

Bah, I was going to make a joke about being able to play as my favorite QB Hanie, but #9 beat me to it.

I'll try the demo out just to play as the Packers.

@8 Is Brett Favre in here? I mean I know he said he was done with football, that he really really meant it this time...but is he REALLY not in here? I won't believe it until I beat the demo.

@20 I heard NCAA is trash this year, no offense just what I hear from people who have played the games in the past..
