EA Sports has revealed their story mode for Madden 18 dubbed “Longshot”

And with EA’s new wave of story based modes comes “Longshot’s” cast of characters.

You take on the role of a forgotten college great, Devin Wade. Wade has returned home to pursue his once forgotten dream of a career in the NFL. Alongside Devin, Academy Award winning actor, Mahershala Ali plays the role of Devin’s father, Cutter Wade who dedicated his life to his son, Devin and making him the best football player he can be.

Other notable cast members include Colt Cruise, a jokester, but a fiercely loyal friend to Devin who cares just as much about his potential NFL career as his own.

And rounding out the cast is none other than Devin’s mentor, Dan Marino. Who apparently doesn’t like to always play by the rules. Interesting stuff, Dan.

We can’t wait to try this mode on for size.

As always, keep it tuned to SportsGamersOnline for more info on “Longshot” as well as everything else EA Play.

Madden 18 launches this August for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
