The best Madden 18 deal is at Best Buy, where you can get Madden 18 for $11.50 after all of the savings are combined. That’s a huge deal for a game that retails for $59.99 and $79.99, and it’s only available if you pre-order the new Madden game and trade in Madden 17 at Best Buy. It’s one of the best reasons to pre-order Madden 18.

This Madden 18 deal includes up front discounts and rewards, so you will need to pay more than $12 to take Madden 18 home, but you will get another $10 in rewards to spend on another game soon after you buy Madden 18.

With these Madden 18 deals and Madden 18 G.O.A.T. deals, you can save up to $25 when you trade in Madden 17 at Best Buy thanks to a $15 trade-in value and a $10 coupon. This is only available in store and it is only available on the physical version of the game with a pre-order. You cannot wait until the day before if you want the Madden 18 G.O.A.T. edition as it may not be eligible for an in-store pre-order that close to the release.

Gamers Club Unlocked is $30 for a two-year membership and it is well worth it for many gamers. You get 20% off games and a 10% trade-in bonus. You can use it on all physical versions of games and it stacks on top of most sales. If you buy more than 3 games a year it is worth joining.

Best Buy’s Madden 17 trade-in value is triple what GameStop is offering, and there is a $10 coupon on top of the trade-in value. This is the best way to trade in Madden 17 and will be the best value you can get now that the new game is just a few weeks away.

Madden 18 Deal w/ Madden 17 Trade-in Breakdown

This is a deal that Best Buy offers almost every year, but if you are new to it, there are some things you need to understand about how this happens. First off, it is only available with a trade-in of the physical copy of Madden 17 and to get the best deal you need the PS4 or Xbox One version.

You’ll need to put $5 down on Madden 18 at Best Buy in store for this deal to work. You cannot do it online. This $5 goes towards your pre-order. You will need to head into the store with your Madden 17 trade-in and pre-order Madden 18 for this to work. Do not wait until the last minute if you want the Madden 18 G.O.A.T. edition as you might not be able to pre-order for in-store pickup that day. If you are an EA Access member you can already play Madden 18 without the disk, and you can play Madden 18 early, likely on August 17th.

Madden 18 Graphics Upgrades

Madden 18 Graphics Upgrades

You can count on Madden 18 graphics upgrades thanks to the switch to the Frostbite engine. EA switched FIFA to Frostbite last year and this year it's time to upgrade Madden. 

We get to see game engine footage in the Madden 18 teaser trailer below, but we don't see any head to head gameplay that reveal the changes you will see when you play. 

The Madden 18 graphics upgrades we know about include better-looking stadiums inside and out. With Frostbite we will see city skylines and stadium exteriors. EA promises that you can, "watch the spectacle of NFL game day come to life in our most photorealistic game to date." Frostbite can deliver better-looking player faces as well. This is one of the places where FIFA upgrades were most noticeable. 

EA promises more to come, but specifically, calls out the fireworks that you see in the video above, player runouts and "stunning" weather elements. Frostbite delivers impressive weather in Battlefield 1, and we hope that this means we will see more realistic weather elements in Madden 18.
