NCAA Football 12 News Post


IGN posted a story today detailing some of the additions to Dynasty mode in NCAA Football 12.

The biggest change seems to be the ability to create a coach and move up the coaching ranks. Many folks have been begging for a "coaching carousel" in this series, so this addition seems like it should make a lot of people happy.

Quote:
...EA and Tiburon have responded and given players the ability to create their own coaches from scratch. You can modify looks, set ages and even pick an alma mater. Save these changes, and you can share them with the world and every mode in your game.

That stuff might sound cosmetic, but it plays into the cool changes in Dynasty mode. When you start, you can choose to go be the head coach of whatever school you like, but the real challenge is taking on one of the new offensive or defensive coordinator slots and working your way up to running an entire team. Yes, this year you can be one of the assistant coaches and manage just one side of the ball for entire games. Do well, and the shot at a head coaching job might pop up.

The story also mentions some details about Online Dynasty mode, including confirmation that you will be able to simulate online dynasty games from your computer.

If you're a more visual person, IGN has also posted a video preview detailing these changes.


On a level beyond the additions themselves, the biggest change this year just seems to be the ability to customize the experience to your liking. The folks at EA Tiburon have been relatively rigid when it comes to customizing players, leagues and so forth, but the shackles seem to be coming off in both football games now.

More details should be released about this mode and the Road to Glory mode in the near future. The embargo for all media as it relates to these modes lifts on May 23.

Haven't read, but if true, great find!

Just finished it up and holy ****!!! This sounds amazing. Hopefully coaches bring in styles with them and have ratings.

This is a dream come true!

This is an amazing find. I like the idea of working your way up as a coordinator. I hope that allows you to recruit just your side of the ball and when your coach you can recruit both sides. I hope this works the same way when you start as a head coach.

This is great news though.

So when we are playing a game and have the OC role, can we still play defense but have the plays picked for us?

I was wondering the same thing, but surely if we can be an OC/DC, we can hire them.

My guess will be that the OC/DC's will be part of the Coaching Carousel.

This is going to be great, but after thinking about it, I have one concern. Do coaches get ratings, and actually matter? Either way, I'm so amped for this right now.

THANK YOU BASEDGOD! lol...forreal though, thank you EA for the effort. It looks like they learned from NBA 2k's success. All it takes is the extra effort and you will see the benefit. This is a first day buy.

I wonder if you can only pick the plays and not play? Is the coaching carousel only for be a coach mode or does it work if you are actually on the sticks as well.

I am going to be severely disappointed if this is coach mode only.
