The long wait is finally over. EA Sports College Football 25 is officially set to return this summer.

EA Sports announced that the long-awaited college football video game will be released on July 19 and confirmed the standard and deluxe covers. The standard edition is available for pre-order $69.99 while the deluxe edition is available for $99.99.

The deluxe edition perks include three-day early access to the game, 4,600 college football points, alma mater ultimate team pack, cover athlete ultimate team pack, “bring glory home” ultimate team pack and Heisman hopeful ultimate team pack.

The standard edition also includes the alma mater ultimate team pack, cover athlete ultimate team pack, “bring glory home” ultimate team pack.

The full reveal, which will likely contain game play, full modes, etc. is coming Thursday.

It’s been just over a decade since the last edition of the game, but the wait is just about over.

A Supreme Court ruling in the case of NCAA v. Alston, which directly led to NCAA policy allowing for NIL compensation, was perhaps the biggest catalyst in the return of the games.

Once NIL requirements were satisfied, EA announced that every FBS football player would receive $600 and a copy of the game, which retails at $69.99, for using their name, image and likeness. There were some opt-outs, highlighted by Texas quarterback Arch Manning, but it appears as though every Pitt Panther will be in the game. However, if a player does opt-out, a created player will not be able to be named after said player.

EA Sports worked with One Team Partners to deal with NIL rights and CLC, which is the country’s top college trademark licensing company, allowing over 15,000 current student-athletes to make merchandise deals.

The Compass CLC app allowed all student-athletes to opt in or out of their NIL of the upcoming video game.

There will likely be new game modes added to EA Sports College Football 25, but the usual modes of Dynasty, Road Glory and Ultimate Team will be available.

Even though the status of some stars around the country is unknown, several WVU players have opted into the game, most notably Garrett Greene and Jahiem White.
