Gamers will be able to play in the new stadium in Play Now Mode right away, and it will be available in Franchise Mode after completing a full season with the Falcons.
The Atlanta centerpiece will be the world’s first football stadium with an eight-panel retractable roof, and a 63,000 sq. ft. 360 degree HD video halo board, and gamers will get to experience a digital rendering of this new state of the art building before it’s completed.
Steve Cannon, CEO of the AMB Group, had this to say about introducing their project into the Madden franchise: “As anticipation builds for the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium next summer, we’re excited that fans will be able to see it come to life early in Madden NFL 17. The stadium is being designed with a focus on fans and the fan experience, so who better to see and play the first games virtually.”
Mercedes-Benz Stadium will also be the home of MLS soccer club Atlanta United, and several massive events will be hosted there over the next few years: the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship game, Super Bowl LIII in 2019, and the NCAA Men’s Final Four in 2020.
