Gamers and sports fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the newest American Football computer game - Madden NFL 25. The name of the game has been changed from the expected Madden 14 to its current title to celebrate the fact that EA Sports have been making American Football video games for 25 years, and as such we can expect a top-quality version of the hit series.
Madden NFL 25 will be released on August 27 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, with a later release of November for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. The creators of the games have listened to fans’ feedback - want a more realistic game that looks like the real thing? Well, now you can pretend that you are in the midst of an epic NFL battle with Madden NFL 25.
EA Sports' Creative Director for Central Gameplay Rex Dickson has given fans an insight into what the new version will look like, and a number of screenshots have been released. A number of enhanced features will be included to make for a more life-like experience, including TrueStep, Phase Matching, Conservation of Momentum and Immersion, while there will also be more attention paid to how the people in the stadiums and figures on the sidelines react.
The TrueStep feature will mean that when controlling a player he will respond with accurate steps and weight transfer, making the most realistic running animations the game has ever seen.
Dickson also stated that the game's creators have also taken weight, centre of gravity and momentum into consideration when designing the players, so contact looks real and will have a real impact on the game.
When playing a video game you want to feel like you are immersed in the action, and EA Sports state that little details such as hearing the quarterback yell out instructions, and hear defences return in kind will now be included.
The use of the Ignite game engine should mean that the user has a more visually stunning and life-life experience, in what could be the most successful and popular American Football video game of all time.
