The story of Devin Wade is a highlight in Madden 18 EA Sports

One of the newest (and most awesome) features of Madden 18 is the Longshot mode, the first story mode in Madden’s long history, which lets players follow a “football movie you can play.

In Longshot, players make choices and play minigames that affect Devin Wade’s overall rating and where he is taken during the NFL Draft. Like many story modes, there are multiple endings. Your performance on and off the field will determine which of the three endings you get. Check out all three endings and how to obtain them below.

SPOILER ALERT! The following will spoil the events of the Longshot story in Madden 18. We suggest completing Longshot on your own first, then replaying using this guide to get the other two alternate endings.

DEVIN IS DRAFTED, BUT COLT ISN’T

The first ending sees Devin get drafted in the 7th round by his favorite team, the team you tell Dan Marino earlier in the story. However, your friend Colt Cruise does not get drafted but instead decides to pursue his music career (while still keeping in NFL shape, just in case).

To obtain this ending, you’ll need to play with your head and not your heart. Your football IQ and performance grades are key, but especially the football IQ. Know the answers to your mentor’s questions is one easy way to increase your football IQ score. You’ll also need to be a bit selfish in how you play the game, and choose any decision that makes your character look good. This is especially the case in the end of the game where you have a choice to make: yourself look smart and check down, or make Colt look good and throw a play not called by your coach.

DEVIN GOES UNDRAFTED, COLT GETS DRAFTED AND DEVIN SIGNS WITH COLT

This ending sees Colt drafted in the 7th round instead of Devin. While Devin is heartbroken, he does get a call from Marino to either join his favorite team or the team that Colt is drafted by, which happens to be a division rival. This ending shows what happens when Devin chooses to go sign with Colt.

To get this ending, you’ll need to make decisions based on your heart, and help Cruise out as much as possible whenever he asks this is especially the case in the last challenge where you’ll go for the “impossible throw” to Cruise.

WADE GOES UNDRAFTED, COLT GETS DRAFTED BUT WADE SIGNS WITH A DIFFERENT TEAM

This ending is similar to the one before it, but instead of joining Colt, you sign with your favorite team. While this does end your journey with your best friend, you’ll see that a little friendly competition doesn’t hurt anyone.

To get this ending, simply do the things from the ending before but just choose differently when Marino calls.
