Pre-Order If You Want to Play Madden 22 ASAP
If you want to play Madden 22 the second it's released in August, you'll want to pre-order.
Pre-ordering a copy of the MVP or Dynasty Edition gives you three days early access to the final version of the game.
If you buy a digital copy of the game you can pre-load it onto your platform of choice ahead of the game's release date in August.
Pre-loading the game files ahead of time will allow you to jump right in when the game unlocks on August 20th. Those of you in western time zones will be able to play starting on August 19th.
If you buy a physical copy you won't get your delivery until the morning, afternoon, or night of August 20th. That may not be ideal for those of you who love to jump into the latest version of Madden right when it comes out.
