Madden NFL 13 News Post


The official Playstation Blogcast (roughly at the 18:18 point) announced the Madden NFL 13 demo arrives on Tuesday, August 14th for PS3 and Vita, which means 360 owners should see the demo that morning.

No details have been announced, but at least we know the release date.

Thanks to iloveparkmin for the earlier link.

UPDATE: Madden NFL 13 demo details

The Madden NFL 13 demo includes the New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Redskins.

UPDATE #2: You can choose difficulty settings. 5 min quarters and it's an entire game. It will also have full commentary. No sliders this year. You can change play style between game flow and conventional.

The Madden NFL 13 demo offers two Play Now matchups. One features the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants visiting the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last seasonís NFC Championship game. The other involves the Seattle Seahawks traveling to the Washington Redskins, who are of course led by rookie QB Robert Griffin III. And before you step onto the field for either of these matchups, youíll get to check out the redesigned pregame presentation. That includes a broadcast TV-inspired segment that features some top players in the upcoming game youíre about to play, and is followed by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the booth talking about the story of the game.

On the field, you have access to everything thatís new in Madden NFL 13. This includes Total Control Passing to accurately place the ball anywhere on the field as the QB; the Ball Hawk mechanic to aggressively play the ball in the air as a defender; play action abort to cancel out of a play action when sensing pressure as a QB; use of Kinect (Xbox 360 only) to control pre-play audibles and adjustments with your voice; and of course the Infinity Engine that brings physics you can feel on every play.

We also encourage you to use the Madden NFL 13 demo to create yourself with a Game Face for use in the full version of the game on August 28th. This year marks the first time you will be able to put yourself in the game as a player or coach using your Game Face before leading a virtual version of yourself to gridiron glory.

Dont really care that much as to which teams are in it, but I would really like to see a demo that displays some of the new features in CCM. Pretty excited about this demo TBH

Any idea on the size of the Vita demo? Need to clear some space on my memory card for it.

Wonder if it will have Kinect features enabled?

I wonder when we will get demo details?

I wish we would get a handful of teams and 7 minute quarters with 15 second run off.

Or give us the option to play a few weeks of CCM, yeah I know, that's not going to happen.

I'm just concerned that Madden Vita is going to suck because we haven't seen any gameplay videos. If you were EA why wouldn't you release one? If it was good it would only drive hype and anticipation.

The final deciding factor whether to buy the game or not.

hopefully this turns out to be a good demo and not some cheesy 2 min qtr stuff. With all the new updates let us actually play the game for a little bit . That is what Im hoping to see.

Agree. No information is not good.

Everything....rides on this demo. I passed on NCAA 13 this year for the first time ever (rightfully so).

Let's hope the hype is worth it on M13.

It's funny how your mind can change over time because a week ago I didn't care much about the demo because, it's just a demo. However, after reading some things I will be using the demo to gauge the "throw a receiver open" mechanic for Madden 13 versus the NCAA 13 demo, see if the Infinity engine does give a weight feel to controlling players like some have claimed, check on swerving/zig-zag running as best I can, watching to see how cohesive and polished whatever included presentation elements are, looking for player emotions on the field, testing out how effective the "read n react" system is for defense and how offensive/defensive players attack the ball in the air.

All that said, I am getting the game even if all that stuff stinks because of CC but that stuff will determine whether I will be playing games as a Coach or as a Player.
