EA Sports has confirmed via Twitter that Madden NFL 12 will be available through the “Season Ticket” tomorrow for the Xbox 360 at 9am ET/6am PT and the PS3 at approximately 6pm ET/3pm PT. The game will also be immediately playable after the download completes which is likely to take several hours (the file size is 4.8 GB).
The digital copy will expire at 6am ET/3am PT on Tuesday morning but all saved files and achievements will transfer to retail copies. The only mode unavailable with the digital download is Madden Ultimate Team. All other modes including online play are accessible.
