Unfortunately, PC players won't get the chance to play the game for free. However, EA Play Members still get a 5-Hour Free Trial of the game, allowing them to at least try it out.

Madden 24 Gameplay

Madden 24's Gameplay offers a gameplay experience similar to Madden 23, but with some new changes. Our review of the game goes more in-depth on the new additions.

Players who haven't tried out the new Madden game yet can try their hand at the brand new Superstar mode, which is a revamped version of Face Of The Franchise. Additionally, Franchise mode got some improvements with more trading slots, a re-worked free agency period, and improved scouting.

Of course, Madden 24 offers the other big modes like Ultimate Team or the returning Mini-Games. Overall, there's plenty of things to get into if you're new to the series. Additionally, EA Sports recently released a title update that improved a lot of the gameplay mechanics.
