Electronic Arts kicks off the Madden NFL 21 free weekend today in celebration of the Pro Bowl.
The free weekend coincides with a virtual Pro Bowl that is being held within Madden 21. The 2021 NFL Pro Bowl is scheduled to kick-off virtually on Sunday, January 31. The in-person Pro Bowl was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, but it was canceled due to the pandemic.
According to Electronic Arts, the free weekend offers the complete Madden NFL 21 experience. Players across all platforms are invited to join in on the fun, including Google Stadia. After the free weekend is over, players can grab a copy of the game for 50 percent off at Amazon, Microsoft Store, and other online retailers.
Google Stadia Launch
EA is launching Madden NFL 21 on Google Stadia today as well. It’s EA’s first game developed on the Frostbite engine released on Google’s online game streaming platform.
“Madden on Stadia will reach more players where they play, adding to the list of platforms where the game is available,” EA Sports says.
In addition, Madden 21 is 60 percent off across all platforms until February 8. Meanwhile, the free weekend runs until January 31. So you’ll have four days to throw around the virtual pigskin.
