The third year of the new generation of consoles (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S) is bringing about changes Madden NFL which could prove to be revolutionary.
On Thursday, EA Sports revealed new game features coming soon Madden NFL 23. Chief among these is “a new foundation for consistent, ultra-realistic gameplay” that the company has dubbed FieldSENSE.
FieldSENSE aims to change the way the only officially licensed NFL simulation game plays. The system “delivers a flow of play with realistic results on the pitch,” the company said in a press release on Thursday, specifically addressing in-game player animations using branched technology to create “Hit Everything,” a new system. aimed at redefining “the physical interactions during the game that allow players to fight for every inch and change the outcome of tackles, both in mid-air and on the ground”.
Much of Madden is based on player animations, whether it’s a running back throwing a stiff arm, a catcher jumping high to catch a pass, or a defender hitting a ball carrier for a big hit with the ball. his famous Hit Stick. This new system intends to change the way these animations interact in a match, allowing defenders to influence a ball carrier in new ways that could have a significant impact on the outcome of any game.
Madden isn’t even changing the game at the point of contact. EA Sports announced the implementation of new mechanisms that the company calls 360 Cuts, “giving players the ability to change direction in a penny by controlling ball carriers.” EA is also revamping the passing game with Skill Based Passing, “a new way of passing that gives players maximum control to position the ball exactly where they want, with the power they want.”
FieldSENSE aims to change the way Madden plays in all game modes, providing the series with a new foundation upon which every outcome on the pitch will occur. The new gameplay will be coupled with improvements to zone coverage, run-to-pass and containment of mobile quarterbacks. Anyone who has ever been tasked with attempting to bottle virtual Lamar Jackson (like this writer in his online Madden League) will be happy to test these changes in the hopes that they bring a more realistic experience to their virtual fields.
Visually, EA Sports is pushing the power of next-gen consoles with new player body types, gear and visuals that are completely rebuilt using new NFL player full body scans and game day gear scans, one news for the franchise. The Megalodon, the 4K camera that has caused a sensation on the internet for its dramatic close-ups of real-life NFL action in recent seasons, will also be rolled out for touchdown celebration shots in Madden NFL 23.
It’s hard to ascertain how significant these changes will be compared to Madden’s more recent rumors with no gameplay video, but those clips are sure to arrive in the weeks and months to come. EA Sports is also demonstrating its efforts to listen to its user community, responding to requests for franchise mode improvements by including new additions such as brand new free agency and contract improvements, draft scouting improvements, and updates to the franchise hub. and to trade logic.
