Madden NFL 15 News Post



EA Sports today released a new Madden NFL 15 trailer featuring Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers. The trailer shows Kuechly being transformed into what appears to be a vastly improved player model over the models found in Madden NFL 25.

Here's the whole trailer's script:

Quote:
"I'm transforming, into something I never knew I could become.

If you don't know me by now, you will."

The trailer heavily hints at the prospect that Madden has been completely revamped, at least graphically -- but it hints at something even bigger.

Madden NFL 15 arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 26th.

Guess we'll have to wait until June to find out what EA is up to with this year's game, any ideas from you guys?

Obviously this is not much. It's really a teaser more than a trailer but, if the player models are going to look like that then that will be awesome.

I'm still mostly concerned about game play, CFM improvements, and sliders/penalties working right but, player models and faces were in desperate need of a make over. looking forward to see more in June.

If this player model is actually IN THE GAME...unlike the RG3 "in-game footage" shown at E3 last year, then I will be impressed. But after last year I'm never trusting any teaser or trailer for Madden until I see actual gameplay videos.

Both are right. This is year 2 on next gen so I'm assuming the game won't be rush and hopefully will be improved greatly. There is so much you can do on PS4 and XB1, I just hope they utilized next gen better this year.

My expectations for significant next gen changes will always be tempered while previous gen is selling so many units and shares development time.

Looking forward to what they've got to show us though

I agree with the guys above you not fooling me with this crap again.i will wait for gameplay footage

Not trusting the trailers this year. We need actual game improvements not teaser trailers that will just set us up for disappointment. I hope EA Sports can turn it around this year or we will continue to ask for another company to step in and challenge Madden.

Jesus people every entertainment company has a teaser trailer movies and games alike, give them a shot before you reem madden i know they have let us all down from time to time but it dosent cost you anything to wait and see, not a cent. its just nice to see some football game info period! and it does look better than the current player models. So anyway lets see what the boys over at EA got

I don't know, kind of made me dislike Madden even more.

I'll be more impressed if they start releasing blogs about gap integrity and AI differences between one-technique defensive tackles in a 4-3 Base front and one-technique defensive tackles in a 4-3 Under front. The biggest thing I want from this generation of consoles is a smarter and strategically deeper game of football.

That said, as someone who passed on the Gen-8 version of Madden 25, if that's the final on-field graphic level of detail (and I'm still wait-and-see on that, given Madden 06's hype cycle) - holy crap.

Hopefully they treat xbox 360/ps 3 like they did with PS2/Xbox versions and just basically update the rosters. I think they even kept Michaels and Madden as the announcing team.

Double post for this blurb:

So that's a thing.

They're pushing a decade now. A near decade of the same BS.

But hey, this is the year guys. This is the year of Transformation.

Transformation being nothing more than a buzz word put forth by a PR company.

I'm sure everyone here would agree with you, but as you know, Madden is made for the general football fan. I personally would love it. I would love if they made the FO work deeper than what it is. Make the contracts more life like (Front heavy, back heavy, averages) Options

I just wouldn't expect too much here from Madden. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

Well EA does this every year, they are fantastic at marketing but at some point people are going to get burned out with the final product not looking like the trailer shown months before. You mention other games but other games dont typically have a yearly release where they over promise and under deliver year in and year out. EA will continue on business as usual, flashy marketing videos, little gameplay shown, theyll find a catchy tag line or something to hitch their wagon to, ie. grass for M25 on PS4, and ride that to more sales and I cant blame them technically as at this point the formula works every year so why change what works. Having said that, for the hardcore "sim" guys it sucks since we arent the target market or demographic that moves the most units so we will always be an afterthought, look no further then things like penalties not working for years upon years.
