EA announced it would be drafting a new football game to its roster, titled NFL Tour. NFL Tour will be developed by EA Tiburon, who also made the popular Madden football series. It will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in January 2008.
NFL Tour is a new NFL licensed video game that offers players a fun and engaging experience with the NFL and its talented players. Gamers will be able to embark on a fictional NFL road show. With real NFL players as teammates, players will travel across the country to play against each of the NFL teams in newly designed stadiums. As players defeat each of the NFL squads, they come one step closer to winning a NFL contract. Here’s a teaser:
According to the game’s executive producer Dale Jackson, NFL Tour “will appeal not only to football enthusiasts, but also to casual gamers.” Last November, EA released NFL Street 3 on the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.
