It's going to be that time of year again. Electronic Arts has just announced the release date for Madden NFL 15.

The teaser trailer above shows Carolina Panthers linebacker and Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly being transformed into a computer-generated version of himself. We suppose this is to herald in a new kind of Madden NFL game that comes packed with a new broadcast presentation, complete with all-new camera angles and dynamic pre-game and half-time features.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Madden game if fans weren't given the chance to vote for their picks for the player who will be slapped on the cover of Madden NFL 15. A cover vote announcement will be made on ESPN and the NFL Network on May 8 at 8pm EDT during the NFL Draft, so tune in for more details about the vote.

Expect to see Madden NFL 15 on store shelves on Aug. 26 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
