Madden NFL 25 News Post

(View 8 new Madden NFL 25 Next-Gen screenshots, right here.)

Today Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) has officially announced Madden NFL 25 will be coming as a launch title for Xbox One® all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Madden NFL 25, powered by the new EA SPORTS IGNITE engine, ushers in the next generation of sports games by delivering the smartest, most realistic, most detailed version of the game in the franchise’s 25 year history.

“We’ve never been more ready for a console transition than we are right now,” said Cam Weber, General Manager of American Football for EA SPORTS. “The development team is crafting the most impressive Madden NFL game we’ve ever made, and I’m extremely excited for fans to get their hands on it for themselves when the Xbox One and PS4 launch.”

Coupled with this announcement is the introduction of Adrian Peterson as the cover athlete for Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings running back, is a five-time Pro Bowler and the reigning NFL MVP. Last season Peterson came within 9 yards of breaking the NFL single-season rushing record set by Eric Dickerson.

Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 brings innovative new features such as True Step Locomotion, Player Sense, the War in the Trenches and more to create an experience that can only be found on next-generation consoles. Here’s an overview of what fans can expect in the most technologically advanced game in the franchise’s 25 year history:

10x the Detail

Next Definition Visuals
  • Madden NFL has never looked so real. See every nuance of a player’s face, equipment, and clothing as the line blurs between the players in the game and their real-life counterparts. Up to 4x the texture resolution breathes new life into stadiums, crowds, the field, and even the ball itself. Combined with high-fidelity animations that deliver the smoothest, most authentic looking player interactions ever, Madden NFL 25 delivers Next Definition visuals.
2x the Control

Every Step Is Calculated
  • The all-new True Step player motion system calculates every step, delivering unprecedented control. Players now have the ability to foot-plant, cut, and shift momentum in an authentic way, unlocking the agility and explosiveness of the NFL athlete. EA SPORTS IGNITE run-time physics calculate at twice the rate allowing for the most organic, user-driven outcomes in franchise history. Combined with the precision modifier’s vast combination of ball carrier moves, Madden NFL has never felt this good.
Players Think

Brains & Brawn
  • All-new Player Sense unlocks the human element in Madden NFL. For the first time, players scan the field, anticipate situations before they happen, and maneuver with instincts and awareness. The ability to make up to 50x as many contextual decisions brings intelligent ball-carriers and defenders to life, as they sense obstacles and react on the fly. Ball-carriers leap over fallen players, blitzing linebackers slide past teammates on their way to the QB and so much more, combining the physical aspects of football with the mental.
War in the Trenches
  • Offensive and defensive line play is at the heart of football, and now it’s the foundation of Madden NFL 25. Lineman are more than just physical, they are intelligent. Coupled with the ability to make 4x more decisions per second, 300 new blocking interactions create the most realistic running lanes for the ball-carrier and passing pockets for the QB. Offensive lineman will dynamically sort and shift assignments based on threats and angles, starting with intelligently identifying the center of the defense, the “Mike” linebacker. The defensive side of the ball features over 3x more new defensive line moves, as well as the latest blitz packages. Authentic double teams, blitz pick-ups, and line shifts showcase units working together as one, highlighting the most physical and intense battles in the NFL. Welcome to the War in the Trenches.
The Game is Alive

Madden Living World
  • The NFL is so much more than just what happens between the lines. It’s the crowds, sidelines, and commentary that truly bring the emotion of Sunday to life. In Madden NFL 25, feel the anxiety of the crowd as you step up to the line on 4th and goal. Watch your teammates and coaches erupt with excitement as you blaze down the sideline for a game-changing score. Hear the most intelligent commentary in franchise history, as Jim Nantz, Phil Simms and our new sideline reporter Danielle Bellini follow everything about your career. From injuries to accolades they’ll bring your career to life like never before.

Oh, good grief, Nantz and Simms are still on?

Oh well, they're still better than Joe Buck.

Hopefully, Connected Franchise and Owner Mode is ported over to the next-gen Madden 25 . I don't want to see a next-gen Madden become bare-bones again like Madden 06.

"blitzing linebackers slide past teammates on their way to the QB"

"The defensive side of the ball features over 3x more new defensive line moves, as well as the latest blitz packages."

Yes please!

Pretty interesting choice to go with a non-relevant sideline reporter.

Maybe she will be on TV this fall? Though Ic ouldnt imagine someone with no experience would get any NFL games

There was definitely double team pass blocking in there.

So they are tripling the 3 moves that they have? so we have 6 now?!

Haha all joking aside though, it looks so much better.

That's kind of what I thought too. In fact, my first thought was "so what is there now? 12?". But the fact that they're adding and multiplying the amount to start next-gen is nice. Seems like they've got a nice foundation to build on which is all I wanted to see.

Well by my math that would take it to 9 then which is better than 3! Lol

I thought Cam Weber specifically mentioned double team pass blocking during the conference.

True but.....Dan and Peter from 2K5 had nothing to do with football either but they were light years better than anything on Madden....ever. It's all about the execution and delivery...not who the reporters or announcers are.

75 & 60 engage with J. Smith before 75 pulls off to pick up the blitzing Bowman.
