The numbers on the Broncos jerseys still look a bit narrow, but the lighting looks fantastic.

That's about all I gather from this still image.

Remember when the "3D Grass" crowd would be going crazy right now? haha

"Looks like Year 2 of the Infinity physics engine will focus on running backs, including a bigger emphasis on cutting, and of course, smacking defenders in the mouth with fierce stiff-arms as you try to knock defenders like Von Miller out of your path. When asked for clarification, all an EA Sports representative would tell us is that the game will highlight a “run free ball carrier feature” that will offer “unprecedented ball-carrier control and precision.”"

Well well, let the speculation begin....hopefully it's not just HB's they're focusing on cutting with.

The "Run Free Ball Carrier Control" just kills any ounce of anticipation I had for this game. This sounds like they are going to re-write the locomotion, and way the running back runs. However, it is not going to focus on the way all other players move?

This sounds like an absolute disaster in the making...

Unusual for NCAA and Madden to release info at the same time.

Interesting.

Much better looking than NCAA

I thought that Run Free stuff was a joke - I missed that entirely - I just looked at the picture and read the comments haha.

Beautiful lighting, but as we all know screenshots don't tell much if anything at all. Nonetheless, very nice.

I'll wait for game play film before making my decision this year. I don't expect better graphics, I'm interested in how the UI, CC, and Playbooks/Schemes are incorporated.

Not much to glean from a screenshot...

...but I was quietly hoping that THIS would finally be the year that mouthpieces get back into the game. But alas...

Spoiler

I'm only going to get excited when I see this thing in motion. My biggest problem with this game has been the running animations among other glaring fundamental issues that need to be addressed. Hopefully these are the fluid animations Cam Weber promised us.

This is what I am wondering considering what has been the Tiburon way of peicemeal. I really hope this new tech is solid and that it applies to everyone in motion, including the new real refs (only halfway joking about refs, have you seen the way those guys glide and dash in M13?), not just RBs and ball carriers. One would think that for Von Miller to be off balance like that, all players have centers of gravity, weight, momentum and are generally effected by IE 2.0 but who knows. Hopefully it's not the just a pic of the legacy, "juke animation triggers defender stumble animation" 2.0, lol.

Foster looks way too skinny/narrow in that picture. I hope they get body types right.

Exactly lol

Or give us the ability to edit body types.

Arian Foster has tattoos. Not in the screen shot. But overall doesn't look bad. I am not getting my hopes up because it is only 1 screenshot.

I can't remember a time when the Madden NFL franchise had recognizable tattoos?

Interesting.

Maybe they've connected to each other via CCM
