Madden NFL has been a long-enduring franchise, having first been released all the way back in 1988 as John Madden Football for the Apple II, Commodore, and MS-DOS. Since then, like many other titles from Electronic Arts, it has seen annual installments featuring various updates ranging from player names and stats all the way through to graphical overhauls as video processing power has increased over time.
Now, you can get your hands on the latest version of the game, Madden NFL 20, either via a direct purchase or as a freebie by taking advantage of one of the current deals on Xbox One bundles.

However, if you've already got your hands on an Xbox One and don't need another one, then you can buy a copy of Madden NFL 20, which is available in three editions; the standard version ($59.99), Superstar ($79.99), and Ultimate Superstar ($99.99). That said, if you have EA Access, you can save up to $10 on the cost of the game, depending on which edition you decide to purchase.
In terms of added extras, the Superstar edition includes seven Gold Team Fantasy Packs and one Small Training Quick Sell Pack while Ultimate Superstar version bumps that up to ten Gold Team Fantasy Packs, plus one each of the Large Training Quick Sell Pack, Past and Present Elite Player Pack, and the Madden Championship Series Pack. Otherwise, the Xbox One X Enhanced title is the same, with four-player multiplayer support locally or up to six in online gameplay.
However, if you're not sure about shelling out for Madden NFL 20 but you've already bought EA Access, you can take advantage of a free trial of the game before pulling the trigger.
