mzl.gemxzttt.175x175-75A new Madden is probably coming down the pipes from EA, but for the moment, Gameloft has the whole iOS NFL football scene on lock. This morning, the publisher pushed out a giant update to its free-to-play NFL Pro Football app in anticipation of the upcoming 2014 NFL season. Also, it changed the game's name to NFL Pro Football 2014 [Free].

For the most part, this update seems to try to tackle the various graphical oddities of last year's game, but the update also added the 2014 Superbowl to the Season mode and it allows for users to learn and edit over 200 different plays.

The unfortunate side of this? You won't see real players or get to play as your favorite rookies -- Gameloft still hasn't secured the rights to names, it seems.

It'll be interesting to see what the new Madden is this year, especially since Gameloft has a jump on it with this game. Regardless, if you want NFL football on your phone now, this is the game you've been looking for.

      Sorry, I just had to fix your original and witty remark

    If you think about it NFL and GL could make a great team up. Everything is IAP and everything is overpriced. Pay-to-win isn't just a strategy it's the only way to play. If there were just some way to simulate dealing in illegal PEDs and $9 lite beers.

    Ugh FTP:/ I guess I'll get it because I love football.

    Guys, don't count this game out, it's still a pretty good game, despite the f2p model.

    Dear Madden 14, don't let us down.

  • extol4000

    The Gameloft & Madden games on ios all feel the same. Make the players bigger. (Or smaller.) just DO SOMETHIG DIFFERENT!

  • RamazAdelphos

    This game feels and looks exactly like Pro football 13 by gameloft wtf ;-;

  • JohnnyJ301

    Real shame, this freemium crap. NFL 2011 by Gameloft was great. I wish they would make it premium like that version.

  • tarek

    Looking forward to Madden and hoping its a paid premium title. I'm happy to pay whatever amount for a solid NFL game.

  • RamazAdelphos

    Besides what I said, it's not that bad. The iap are annoying AF. I wish I could have all the play instead of having t buy them but whatever. This game will satisfy ur hunger for football until madden 14 releases for iOS:)

  • worldcitizen1919

    Love NFL football but Gameloft freemium is CRAP.

    Bring on MADDEN. Please don't massacre it with iaps like Gameloft.

  • {SQUEEK}

    Game is crap. I will play Maddening Madden instead. Understand it's free but the commercials are annoying. I hope Gameloft gets as much money as they can so they can try to make better servers for their games.
