Click here for the hi-res Madden NFL 13 screenshot.

April 5, 2012 – EA SPORTS today unveiled the first Madden NFL 13 screenshot showcasing new Nike uniforms. The EA SPORTS development team was granted early access to the new designs of the NFL uniforms and used this insight to meticulously recreate the Nike clothing in Madden NFL 13.

The Madden NFL 13 development team has been working closely with Nike and the NFL to ensure that all in-game uniforms are identical to their real-world counterparts. EA SPORTS was given access to the earliest Nike templates, and the two companies have had numerous meetings, working closely together to ensure complete authenticity in Madden NFL 13.

Quote:
In the past, our team would watch hours upon hours of games that Nessler and Herbstreit called on television, writing lines of scripted commentary that were meant to be in the voice of our talent. We’ve realized that no matter how much tape you watch we were never going to be able to predict how Nessler, and specifically Herbstreit as an analyst, will react and call a situation as it unfolds on the field. Scripting for the two takes away their ability to put events into their own words and provide personal inflections—a key component to capturing a true broadcast sound.

It is because of this that NCAA Football 13 will mark the first year that we’ve moved away from attempting to write scripts for our talent. The process now involves working in the studio with the talent to paint a picture of the game situation and allow them tell the story in their own words. We want both Brad and Kirk to feel like they are in a booth on a Saturday night, and even pump in crowd noise and fight songs into their headphones to get them into the moment.



Quote:
The last surprise for lighting and rendering that I have for you is motion blur. This is a feature that we’ve wanted to develop for several cycles, and now we’ve finally been able to include it for you. The addition of motion blur has helped the representation of the animation feel more natural, in addition to the new animations and hard work the team has put into game play. As our players or cameras move through space rapidly, you’ll notice the edge of the player softens as well as the surrounding textures.



Quote:
The same technology used by the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR team to scan Augusta National for the inclusion of The Masters in that game series is also being used in NCAA Football 13 this year to capture the intricate details of some of the brand-new stadiums for FBS play this coming fall; in particular, the new home fields for Florida Atlantic University and North Texas have both been scanned into this year’s game as incredibly faithful virtual reproductions of the real thing. The level of detail for these new stadiums is jaw-dropping, and I can imagine people using FAU and North Texas just to get a highly-accurate digital preview of the new venues before the season starts.

EA has released a patch and tuner update for SSX.

New Features
  • PS3 RiderNet Radio (PS3 VOIP Support)
To use:

From the RiderNet menu (Back/Select from the main menu) a new 7th option “RiderNet Radio” is available.

Within the main screen for RiderNet Radio, you have the following options available:
  • See a list of all your friends’ active groups
  • Join a group
  • Create a group
  • Refresh groups
  • Back -> Takes you to RiderNet menu
While in a group, you should see all members of the group in a list and hear them chatting on your headset. You will also have the following options available from within this area:
  • Leave group
  • Refresh Screen
  • Back -> takes you to RiderNet menu
RiderNet Radio can support up to 10 users within a single room.

While participating in a RiderNet Radio group, you can chat with your friends while playing anywhere in the game. Whether you are in separate modes, the front end or riding down the mountain together in a Global Event, you and your friends will now be able to enjoy sharing your SSX experience together.

*Please note that RiderNet Radio is not available in Japan.

Updates and Bug Fixes
  • Issue in which several badge notifications would continue to trigger repeatedly due to other pending notifications from friends or additional badge challenge requirements completed in quick succession.
  • Fixed a crash when a user attempts to collect a global event earning from a DLC range (eg: Japan) which had been deleted/removed from their system.
  • Users will now see tombstones after multiple consecutive runs, rather than only on the first lap of a Survival drop.
  • Using the time dilation (the slowdown stylish move executed by tapping the rewind button), some users were able to exploit extra trick points by activating the slowed state repeatedly in order to increase the length of time their grabs were held while in the air or grinding.
  • Fixed an issue in which users that had hidden a rival (friend) from within RiderNet Rivals screen, and then removed this same Rival (friend) off of 1st party friend lists could potentially cause the save files to become corrupt.
  • Fixed a crash which was being encountered while loading into global events.
  • Fixed a crash which was being encountered during loading screens.
  • Attempting to redeem a code for the online pass, while an online pass is unavailable, would occasionally hang the title.
  • Fixed an issue in which active global events that a user is participating in would not always update, and would sometimes result in the drop fee associated to the event being deducted when re-entering the event.
  • Adjusted the boundary data within New Zealand’s Mount Wakefield tracks, as some users were able to find a way to get outside the main track area and achieve faster record times taking an unintended route.
  • Fixed an issue in which some global event earnings were not properly being paid out to users that had participated and qualified for winnings when returning to the “While you were away screen” or while connecting online after previously playing in an offline state.
  • Fixed an issue in which Geotags were not always paying out the correct amount for a full survival bonus.
  • Final global event standing and payout will now appear in your GE wall.
  • Fixed an issue with classic controls, where the in-air spin/flip/roll rotational speed was not quite as fast as when using the standard controls.
One of the toughest badges to get in SSX is the 50,000 Riders Global Events Badge. Last week we set up a Facebook event called Let’s Try to Get the 50,000 Riders Global Events Badge! trying to rally you all together and it became huge as over 100,000 gamers took part and both Xbox 360 and PS3 in the two-week long ‘Beyond the Fall’ Global Event. As a thanks for your participation we’ve released some great content that we promised to the SSX community, including the ability to level your riders up to 11. The content is available via the latest online Tuner Update, even if you didn’t make it out for the event.

50,000 Riders Global Events Badge Tuner Pack
  • Riders can now be leveled to 11.
  • Level 11 Gear - unlock better gear, a new mod slot and a new Geotag slot.
  • We’ve changed the lighting on key signature tracks in Global Events and in Explore Mode: Serenity has been changed to Pink Dusk. Bulldog and Morning Tiger trick events in New Zealand are now Dusk Orange.
  • We’ve also added longer Global Events and more big money events.
  • Players will get more experience points when playing in Global Events.
