E3 2017’s first look at the power and capabilities of the Xbox One’s Project Scorpio console coming later this year came in some screenshots of Madden NFL 18.

“These Madden NFL visuals are just a taste of what can be accomplished combining Frostbite with Project Scorpio,” Frostbite is the Electronic Arts game engine debuting in Madden this year. “We are already creating the most detailed high-resolution environments you could see on a console.”

Xbox Scorpio, whose launch name and date are not yet known, is being built to deliver 4K resolutions in most existing games. This E3 2017 preview has more on what the console is packing under the hood.

E3 2017 begins on June 13, with press conferences starting June 10. For the big announcements, make sure to check out our one-stop shop for the show's streams.
