Just days away from the Super Bowl LVI and as part of the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl Week, EA Sports' Madden NFL has made history by achieving the Guinness World Records title for the largest projected videogame display.
The projection measured a whopping 47,337 ft² (4,397.75 m²) in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 1, 2022.
The huge projection installation was displayed on the side of the Tropicana Hotel's Club Tower, where an additional area was constructed on top of the building to expand the projection and achieve the GWR title.
The record-breaking videogame projection event celebrated the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl, which took place on Sunday, February 6 in Las Vegas.
To complete this feat, Los Angeles Chargers' Derwin James and Cleveland Browns' Nick Chubb competed head-to-head against Dallas Cowboys' Micah Parsons and Minnesota Vikings' Justin Jefferson in the new 2022 NFL Pro Bowl experience in Madden NFL 22's Superstar KO multiplayer mode.
Host Charissa Thompson, joined by co-host Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, and winner of last year’s virtual Pro Bowl, Marshawn Lynch, called the matchup and led the historic night for the gaming world.
With adjudicator Michael Empric present on site for the official attempt, the evidence was reviewed in real time and the official Guinness World Records certificate was presented to the team on stage, validating this extraordinary achievement.
"We work closely with the NFL each year to create new opportunities for football fans to engage with the sport they love around the biggest moments in the season. The Madden NFL 22 edition of Pro Bowl was an unforgettable moment for fans that was literally one for the record books." - Julie Foster, VP of EA SPORTS™ Brand
The full matchup in the NFL Pro Bowl: Madden NFL 22 Edition gameplay streamed on 5 February across the NFL's social channels, Madden NFL's Twitch and the iHeart Radio App, giving viewers the opportunity to comment, share and have fun watching their idols play the record-breaking videogame.
