As if fans of the Madden franchise needed more of a reason to purchase the new Madden NFL 13, that is scheduled to drop in August, Amazon and Gamestop have posted their pre-order incentives for the game and they include some new dimensions to the game, according to Pasta Padre.
The features include exclusive legends for use in Ultimate Team and the brand new Connected Careers mode. Ultimate Team is a card game within the Madden franchise, while it's still unclear what Connected Careers is supposed to be. EA is following in the footsteps of the NBA 2K franchise which found success bringing back past players as focal points of their game and its promotion.
This isn't the first time legends have been introduced to Ultimate Team as Walter Payton was featured in Madden 11 and others were on the Collector's Edition of Madden 12. As of now, Amazon announced that Joe Gibbs and Lawrence Taylor will be featured and Gamestop is featuring John Madden and Barry Sanders. Best Buy and Wal Mart have not made their announcements yet.
