Madden NFL 21 is launching for all platforms on August 28, but die-hard gridiron fans will no doubt be itching to lace up their cleats.

Thankfully, you can hop in as soon as... well, now. Here's how.


Madden NFL 21: How To Play Right Now

Believe it or not, pre-ordering the game won't get you access to it early.

Instead, you'll need to use EA Play (formerly EA Access) to get your fix.

EA Play Price

To get early access, you'll need to have EA Access, the publisher's subscription service for Xbox One and PS4. It's also available on PC, where it was formerly known as Origin Access.


It'll set you back £20 per year, or £3.99 a month, but will get you ten hours of early access to the likes of Madden 21, and UFC 4, too.

You'll also get 10% off the game and any microtransactions if you like what you play, and you'll get to download games from the EA Access Vault, including Battlefield V, Burnout Paradise Remastered, and more.
