After far too many years of waiting, Terrell Owens was voted into the Hall of Fame via the class of 2018 in February.
To honor the all-time great finally getting into the Hall, EA Sports’ Madden has announced that T.O. will grace the cover of Madden 19 ‘Hall of Fame Edition’, set to release on August 10.
Ironically, the cover features Owens in his signature pose in which he stood over the star mid-field in Cowboys stadium after scoring, but in a Dallas Cowboys uniform rather than a San Francisco 49ers uniform, in which he was actually wearing.
According to Xbox, one major improvement coming to this year’s game will be in the realm of player control. In what’s been dubbed RPM, or Real Player Motion, the game is set to deliver a “more authentic playing experience with hyper-realistic animations.” These animations will allow players to do things like push their blockers to gain tough yards and make quick, realistic cuts up-field after the catch.
The ‘Hall of Fame’ portion of the game comes into play with ‘Ultimate Team’, a popular game mode that allows players to build a roster filled with NFL legends of past and present.
