The Legion of Boom has earned another accolade, as Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman has won the Madden NFL 15 Cover Vote. Sherman faced off against Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the finals and was revealed as the winner of the fan-voted cover in a special segment on SportsCenter.
Sherman proved to be just as dominant off the field as he is on it, shutting down his opposition throughout the tournament. After dispatching Chicago Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery in the opening round, he also thwarted New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and division rival Colin Kaepernick en route to the title. The fans have been especially active in this year’s Cover Vote competition, casting approximately 10 million votes over the course of the contest, and averaging nearly 650,000 votes per matchup.
Madden NFL 15 is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available on August 26 in North America and on August 29 in the EU for Xbox One and PS4. A version of Madden NFL 15 will also release on Xbox 360 and PS3. While you are here though, make sure you check out the first first official Madden NFL 15 gameplay video below and let us know what you think. I’m sorry but it looks like PS4 and Xbox One are going to be the only real consoles you want to play Madden 15 on.
