Playing Madden ’22 on the couch at home might either make you feel like a touchdown hero, or put you through all the stages of grief at once … imagine how well the actual players stack up.

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA, Forum) is back with the NFL Pro Bowl: Madden NFL 22 Edition for the 2022 Pro Bowl - Chargers Derwin James and Browns Nick Chubb will compete head-to-head against Cowboys Micah Parsons and Vikings Justin Jefferson in a new 2022 Pro Bowl experience coming to Madden NFL 22’s Superstar KO multiplayer mode.

Last year’s event was compelled to go virtual for the first time and generated newfound success in doing so. When players faced off against one another in the game, it became the most-viewed event in Madden NFL history on digital platforms, with more than 3.5 million live views.

The VP of EA SPORTS Brand Julie Foster said that last year was a testament to the game’s fan power, while also transforming a major sporting event to a virtual one.

“We’re very excited to return with our long-time partner, the NFL, to host the virtual Pro Bowl for football fans where they live, on digital platforms, and extend the Pro Bowl celebration to the next generation, providing more ways to engage and connect than ever before.”

Returning host Charissa Thompson will be joined by co-host Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and winner of last year’s virtual Pro Bowl, Marshawn Lynch (who broke his chair in excitement last year) to call the matchup on Saturday, February 5th at 6pm EST. The show goes down Sunday, February 6th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. For more on how to take part, click here.

The event will also attempt to break the Guinness World Record title for the largest projected video game display with the biggest Madden NFL game in history from the Las Vegas Strip.

Will you be checking out the event? Who do you pick to win the Super Bowl this year? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
