    • At the beginning of each race, the crown is to be captured by the first player who reaches it.
    • Keeping the crown allows players to score points.
    • To capture the crown from the “King”, other racers need to hit him.
    • When a player captures the crown (for the first time or after hitting the king), he becomes invulnerable to losing it for a short time.
    • The crown cannot be kept indefinitely by the same player without getting timer bonuses that will appear all around the map.
    • The Crown mode brings 4 additional PVP missions specific for this mode.
  • New Roulette system in PVP lobby
    • All players will now be able to select the type of PvP event they want to race in.

  • Fixed the bug related to crew members presence: If a player is in a crew from a previous session, and joined the game with an empty crew (all crewmates are offline) the crew will be left.
  • Improvements on Daily Salary and reputation computing: fixed the issue where the salary didn’t take into account the Award spoil bonus.
  • Improvements on refreshing the crew roster after removing friends.
  • Improvements on PVP ranking points: sometimes players lost ranking points even if they won races.

A new Madden NFL Mobile update is scheduled to be released on August 19, bringing in a few new features and an updated user interface. Users can currently download the game for free on iOS and Android devices. Below are some of the new features coming in August.

WIDE RECEIVER MODE

In Season mode, players will be able to actively play as a wide receiver. They can cycle through their quarterback and available receivers, and then choose the one they want to control.

As soon as the ball is snapped, the player is free to run their route and cut by swiping left or right in order to get open and call for the ball.

In the new season, players will be able to use this experience in their Season games.

UPGRADED USER INTERFACE

Madden NFL Mobile has upgraded its user interface to provide a more frictionless navigation experience.

Players will move into and out of screens and modes quicker, with more screen space available to them. The UI takes on a more modern and stylish appearance that enhances visual appeal.

SPONTANEOUS CHALLENGES

Special new challenges can appear at any time during Season, Head-to-Head and both intra-League and League Tournament games.

These challenges can be as simple as getting a first down to more complex like throwing to a specific receiver for a set number of yards.

Players receive special rewards for completing these challenges, such as a Collectible for a Set or additional Coins and XP.

PLAYER MATCHUP

Players can can show off that premier defensive player they have earned when they are being challenged.

Players will see Items in the 3D game, and can tap on any player to view that Item. You might call this Scouting 2.0.

Check out the new Rory McIlroy PGA Tour gameplay video, utilizing the new "Quick Rounds" feature.

The gameplay coverage begins during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bayhill Club & Lounge in Orlando, Florida. After watching the video, make sure you post your thoughts!

EA Access subscribers can start playing on July 9 for 10 hours. The game ships on July 14th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

UPDATE: EA Sports has posted a new Rory McIlroy PGA Tour blog detailing the Quick Rounds feature, crowd and tournament structures, Golf Channel integration, BOSE Big Hit moments, Heartbeat moments, camera angles and broadcast presentation.

Quote:
New to this year’s game is the Quick Rounds feature, which provides a selection of holes to play each round of a tournament, rather than requiring players to complete all 18 holes each day. You’ll enter each day of the tournament at a different point in the round, with simulated holes based on your player’s ratings and attribute bonuses.

Once you’ve played your selection of holes, the remainder of the round (if you don’t finish on 18) will also be simulated. Players will always complete the final holes on the last day of a tournament, so the ultimate outcome is always up to you.

The NHL 16 team continues to answer questions about the game at their Ask EA page. The Q&A is copied and pasted below for easier reading. Other Q&A sessions have been posted here in the same fashion.

Will there be more customizablity in EASHL? (I.E. More jersey designs, more logos, etc.)

In EASHL 16, you will be able to use the logos and jerseys from the real-world teams for your club. Though this isn't complete customization, the team currently has it on the list of ideas for future iterations and it is something we will continue to look into.

Will HUT still have Collections and rewards for the Collections of teams? And if so, will the rewards be on packs or on HUT-coins?

Yes, HUT 16 will still have collection bonuses in the form of reward packs.

Will Jack Eichel be playable?

Jack Eichel will not be on the disk for when we launch. For him to be in our game he would have to play a shift in an NHL regular season game for us to be allowed to include him in the game.

First off I love the EA Sports nhl franchise and have been playing since the original nhl which I had for Sega. I noticed in be a pro mode in nhl 15 I can have up to 30 or 40 shots on goal but only end up with 1 or 2 goals while I can keep the opposing team down to about 10-15 shots and they will score 3 or 4 times. I guess what I am asking is will the players goalie be as good as the AI goalie ? This is probably the only compliant and question I have. I am very confident that everything else in the game will blow me away.

There isn't one answer to this question as the goalie and players skill vary as you progress through the different difficulty levels (Rookie, Pro, All Star, Superstar). Goalie abilities and shooting even change on different game styles. When you are playing on lower difficulties, your goalie will in some facets play better than the AI goalie whereas on higher difficulties, they play the same but the AI shooters will improve in terms of their shot selection and vision for making passes at the correct times. Game Style (i.e. Simulation vs Hardcore) will change many factors as well that will effect scoring such as how in control you need to be to get an accurate shot or how the angle of your shot and the direction you are skating in relation to your target can effect both your power and accuracy. Beyond finding a difficulty and game style that match your expectations for great competitive play, there are also sliders in the settings for both CPU and Human goalies and shooting to fine tune abilities such as Goalie Reaction Speed and Screen Effect as well as Player shooting accuracy and power that may help you dial them in closer to your expectations.

Is the face-off system being changed at all?

The Face-off system in NHL 16 will be the same as what was in NHL 15.

Are advanced stats going to be in NHL16?

Hey Sean…Advanced stats will not be part of NHL 16.

The trial version of Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR arrives for EA Access subscribers on July 9, but the bigger news is that it will give users 10 hours of gameplay, instead of the 6 hours it had been in previously released sports video games.

Battlefield Hardline also gave users 10 hours of gameplay, when it was released in March. This leads us to believe EA Access trial games going forward, will give users 10 hours of gameplay, instead of 6. For Xbox One users, EA Access continues to be a great value.

We have contacted EA, if we get an official response, we will update this post.
