Madden 22 Trial Release Date & Time

16th August 2021 Update: Early Access is around the corner. With Madden 22’s release date a mere 4 days away, those who bought the MVP and Dynasty editions will be able to play early access from tonight!

12th August 2021 Update: We believe Madden 22’s early access trial will start at 8 am PT as this is when the Fifa 21 and Madden 21 launched last year. Obviously, these have not been officially confirmed, we’d imagine a window of between 8 am PT and 12 pm PT.

Madden 22’s early access trial will be out on August 12th. There is currently no time for the release date, however, it could possibly be available from midnight on August 11th. Looking at FIFA 21 last year, it is possible it could launch in the afternoon but we are going to have to wait and see.

The Madden 22 EA Play demo will be a 10-hour trial, allowing you to play any mode you want but for a limited time and don’t forget, the full game releases on August 20th.
