Madden NFL 12 demo coming August 9th

Chomping at the bit for your yearly instalment of gridiron graphic and gameplay tweaks? EA today announced it will be dropping a demo of Madden NFL 12 on August 9th, just three weeks before the real deal storms the virtual field on August 30th.

According to EA's official Madden blog, the demo will let players re-enact last season's NFC Championship game between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. The game will take place on soldier field, with the quarters set at five minutes in length.

The full retail version will feature 25 news plays, a new collision system, enhanced AI, 100% more Peyton Hillis cover poses and realistic portrayals of concussions. It will also release with a launch day roster update to adjust for the recently concluded NFL lockout.

    Will the launch day update include all the crazy moves that have been happening? Ochocinco and Haynesworth to NE and McNabb, Kolb, Young, all the insane stuff... we'll see.

    I hate to be a dick, but as a football freak that lives in Chicago, it is my painful duty to inform you that it's Soldier Field. Go Packers!
