While the Super Bowl is roughly two weeks away, this coming weekend at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas we’ve got the Pro Bowl. But more importantly, we’ve got the annual Madden Virtual Pro Bowl.
Derwin James (LA Chargers) and Nick Chubb (Cleveland Browns) will team up against Micah Parsons (Dallas Cowboys) and Justin Jefferson (Minnesota Vikings) in Madden 22’s Superstar KO multiplayer mode. Instead of a traditional game of Madden, Superstar KO is a faster 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3 mode in which teams have one drive to score (like the NFL’s Overtime format), and the team with the most points at the end wins.
While I don’t think I’ve ever watched an actual Pro Bowl (since I’ve always grown up watching my favorite team – the six-time champion New England Patriots – play in the Super Bowl), the Virtual Pro Bowl last year was actually pretty electric. Marshawn Lynch got so hyped up during a play in the game that he broke his chair.
What’s going to make this year’s Virtual Pro Bowl even more electric is that they’re going to simultaneously attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest projected video game display of all time, as well as the biggest Madden game ever – which will be broadcast right from the Vegas Strip. Ochocinco and Charissa Thompson will be joined by Marshawn Lynch himself to host the event, so here’s hoping we get lots of furniture (and world records) broken on this weekend’s stream.
