    Madden 16 Draft Champions

    Madden 16 is going to feature a new mode for users called Draft Champions. The new mode will look and feel similar to Madden Ultimate Team in many ways but will focus on drafting a team fantasy football style. The idea is to build a team through a fantasy draft and compete with them in solo or or head-to-head games with the intent of winning a championship. The draft will be varied so players can go through the mode over and over and get a unique experience each and every time.

    I added a lot of that stuff into my review. I am super excited Beckham won the cover shot. That game was so intense I still remember where I was and who I was watching it with. I will probably never forget.
