Madden NFL 12 demo coming August 9

After the recent good news that the NFL league lockout came to an end, EA is releasing a demo for Madden 12 in the run up to the game’s US launch at the end of August.

The Xbox Live and PSN demo will see the Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Bears in a 20-minute, four quarter set-up.

The team rosters will be a little out of date in the demo as they won’t reflect any free agent transfer that occur as a result of the lockout ending, but EA said that a launch day update rectify that.

Madden NFL 12 is expected to launch across multiple platforms on August 30 in the US and September 2 in Europe.
