Madden NFL 13 News Post


Check out some of the new Madden NFL 13 screenshots, right here.

During the Madden NFL 13 webcast, EA Sports listed the player and coaching legends. Many of them will be available to use right away, others will be available via pre-order and Madden Ultimate Team (Joe Montana was confirmed as one of them from MUT).

The Canton team, which includes 27 all-time greats will be available in Play Now. You can also play as 1 of 33 legends in Connected Careers, as you try to compare your career against Hall of Famers.

Also mentioned, the Super Bowl will feature a new pre-game coin toss and Vince Lombardi Trophy presentation with legends bringing the trophy out to the players. Legend quarterbacks will have their own throwing motion and legend coaches will have their own playbooks.

If your player retires and meets the qualifications to become a Hall of Famer, you don't have to wait 5 years, it happens right after retirement (not realistic, they wanted to make it "Fun"). Speaking of retirement, players can come back into the NFL after they have retired. Will we see Brett Favre make a return?

I like the ladder vs other legends/HoF

AH. Finally an addition to the suprebowl.

Pregame Coin Toss Ceremony
Vince Lombardi Trophy presentation
Legend brings the trophy and hands it off and players touch it

Not much, but atleast they upgraded some.

No Lynn Swann ?

I missed about 20 minutes of the webcast, but with all the legends in the game, was there any info on how they are going to move on the field?

Do we get Walter Payton's show pony kick? Is Barry Sanders going to have signature running animations? Did Marino's throwing motion make it in?

Mike Young said the legend quarterbacks will all have their own throwing motions.

Also, all the legend coaches will have their own playbook.

That is a plus on the throwing motions. I'm wondering how the rest of the distinct players will move, but it is something.

And I saw in some of the E3 vids the historic offensive playbooks, which I thought was cool, but did he say anything about the defensive playbooks? I just can't see Tom Landry's offensive playbook without the Flex 4-3 to go with it.

Probably because his motion would be to hard to add.
I'm sure they just "ran out of time" or considered it a "little thing."

It's unfortunate when people start to troll threads because they're upset about other things.

Still tho, one of the best passers in the history of the nfl.
That's can't be it, because I could have sworn I saw Warren Moon's name on one of the screens?

I'd like to know the reason he's not in. I saw Montana, Elway, Moon, Aikman. I'd really like to know why Marino didn't make it.

The sleeves are pretty cool -- must've been what Jean Adams was referring to when he mentioned the inclusion of long sleeves in the presentation blog. Should be another step towards QB's looking even more authentic.

That should quench some fears that signature animations are going away.

The video I saw, the guy was scrolling through them on a regular play now, team select screen before the start of a game. So, I would guess no... but...
