It's a great weekend for "Madden 17" fans, as EA Games is hosting a free event that ends tomorrow. For those who haven't gotten their hands on this chance to play the game for free, here's how to do it.

Gamespot reports that gamers are now able to access the full version of "Madden 17" on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One up until tomorrow, October 10. The free event lets gamers access the full game and not just a demo, giving them a taste before they purchase the game.

The latest "Madden 17" sees an improvement in commentary, ballcarrier controls, and even defensive AI. It also features an update on the three phases of football, including offense, defense, and special teams, as per Attack of the Fanboy. Fans should look forward to new mechanics and amazing AI that makes playing the game even more fun.

There's one peculiar thing about "Madden 17," though, as reported by Engadget. It seems that the sun sets in the east in the game. Apparently, this oversight only occurs in games that take place in the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.

No matter how irrelevant this detail may seem to some players, it seems that EA Games is taking the comment very seriously. In fact, a representative told Kotaku that they are already in the process of fixing the misplaced orbit of the Earth that caused the sun to set in the east.

The representative poked fun at the "Madden 17" development team, saying, "we hope players enjoy this sneak peek into what the world might look like if the Earth rotated in the opposite direction." "Madden 17" was released this August on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Note that the free for all event ending tomorrow is limited to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only.
