NCAA Football 11 News Post

Check out the NCAA Football 11 blog with the Executive Producer of the game.

Quote:
"As a Michigan Wolverine fan, I want an NCAA Football that resembles the Saturday afternoon experience at the Big House. The sights, the sounds, and the traditions. (And of course, the return of a winning season. ;-) But it's not just about visual presentation. It's also making sure that my team - and all 120 FBS teams that we include in the game - look, feel, and play like my team. There are style variations across teams in the NFL but if you want to see true variety, it's all about College. We recognize that NCAA Football needs to more closely model and reflect those differences as part of gameplay.

Innovation

We've always had a history of innovation on the franchise. It was the first EA SPORTS game on Xbox Live back in 2004. In 2009 it was Online Dynasty, giving you the ability to compete with your friends across the country. Or last year's web-based team creator, TeamBuilder, where (amazingly) you guys have already created more than half-a-million custom teams! By the way, these teams will all work in NCAA Football 11 as well...

Before I came onboard the NCAA franchise, I worked on a number of online games and technologies across EA SPORTS and also led the team that helped bring EA SPORTS games to Xbox Live and Sony PSN. Without giving too much away, you can probably guess that online will be a big component of some of the new areas we're exploring this year."

that sounded like a humble guy trying to make things right. At the end he said keep the faith. For a guy to say that, it sounds like they might "try" to deliver a game close to what we wanted.

the tone sounded a lot like Ian did last year to bring madden hardcore back.

Agreed, and I think that's what he was shooting for. Hopefully we get a similar result the rest of the way to what Madden had last year.

Looking Ahead
NCAA Football designers Ben Haumiller and Russ Kiniry have already covered a few of the minor updates in their recent blog. Things, frankly, we should have gotten to a while back... So please keep the faith, the "real" stuff we need to talk about for NCAA Football 11 is still up ahead!
Thanks and Stay Tuned!

HELL....YEAH!!! This is just what I wanted to hear about NCAA11.

I also love the fact that the in-game photo wasn't "-shopped". Love it.

When I heard Ian give the "Mission statement" for Madden 10 and beyond. I said I will enjoy M10 and I did. I would come here waiting for NCAA to give us there "Mission statement" and we never got one. I knew NCAA 10 wouldnt be good and for me it was subpar.

You have to have a direction and/or vision that everybody is working towards. With NCAA this generation it just seemed like the game was having an identity crisis. Glad somebody finally stepped up and express they have a common goal and what that goal is.

You can tell that photo wasnt shopped. It looks like just like the game play last year.

Check out the crowd texture in this video from EA fifa world cup. I know this is ncaa forum but can you imagine if ncaa and madden had crowds like that. and talk about momentum and foot planting. that shows me under the current engine that EA has is capable

The blog was great! I can't wait to hear about these gameplay and presentation improvements.

Roy talks a good game. Let's see if he can produce!

That was a great blog imo. I'm very excited for whats to come in this series. It seems like they have the right mindset going forward.

For NCAA Football 11, we've gone back to the very heart of our football engine and made some major upgrades. Lots more to come on this topic; I promise the core improvements will be worth the wait.
I hate to say it but I'm already sold LOL. EA you have my $60.

I think from this blog we can narrow down what they included off of that list from a few months back (footplanting, team specific play, team entrances, etc.). Unless that's already been done? I've been away from a few weeks so I wouldn't know.

I was basing that guess off the pic mostly, which looks great BTW.

Also we need it so there is actually some realism on defense in terms of turning your hips, taking a bad angle, and things like that.

Well that sounds better than the previous 2 blogs by far.

They MUST improve that pathetic gameplay and it looks like they know it. Absolutely fantastic news. Looking forward to more on this topic. Very encouraging

I want whatever Fifa uses for grass to be in NCAA and Madden


Yeah this was very "Ianish" which is a good thing for the most part. Just hope we don't get mislead with blogs about features that don't exist or hardly ever work

I may have been wrong in my criticisms early on.. If this guys comes thru on the direction he says ncaa is going in. Ta least he mentioned major changes to gameplay, also words like "core and foundation".. sounds good, hope they come thru.

# 19 Watson @ 03/09/10 09:47 PM
The graphics from that screenshot...
The hope of no more day games at LSU...

Great blog! That gives me a lot of hope (a word that has been frowned upon by a lot of the guys on this board) for the future. I look forward to what he will bring to the table. Cant wait for all the news about this game! Im pumped!!
