Madden NFL 15 News Post



Yesterday we got a tease of what's to come with Madden NFL 15 coming up this June. We learned of several new features (with scant details) coming up in this year's title in yesterday's Madden 15 Blog and via a list of features at Gamestop.

So what has you most intrigued heading into the new season? Is it the new defensive gameplay mechanics? The new broadcast presentation? The new crowd-sourced playcalling? None of the above?

Sound off in our poll and tell us what else you'd like to see this year's game implement!

So this year's gimmick is "Transformation". Unless EA has transformed into 2K, it's another yr of overhyped under achievement

Upgraded player models. If the look better and move better, that will totally change the feel of the game. Player models + life like physics = great foundation to build upon. To me, the problem of the last gen, was a faulty foundation.

Quarterback throwing motions are absolutely terrible and need to be more fluid and realistic

i get it not asking for something and not getting it, but talk about what you want from madden not "if its not 2k i..." thats not asking for anything thats just stating something thats been beatin into the ground and that isnt going to happen anytime soon. and ive played in many leagues and most people dont think madden sucks...we think the lack of other games to compete against madden suck but madden is no better or no worse than 2k, the only sports game that blows madden out the water is the show really , they all have faults Madden is nowhere near the perfect game but there far from the worst, .

I am wondering if someone has really rethought how to play defense. So instead of controlling one guy who may or may not sack the QB - maybe you control a team defense or something? Would be cool to feel like i had more of an impact on defense.

I got madden 25 on xbox one and was impressed with the small improvements over the 360 version. It was the first madden I enjoyed playing since the xbox/ps2 era. I was not impressed or happy with any Madden on the 360 and that's to blame on a horrible horrible foundation that started it all. Things are on the up and up and if this game can build successfully off of what was a decent start on the next gen consoles we should be in a good spot. However I can't get too exited for what we have gotten the last 8 years.

The new broadcast presentation. Offline Franchise mode really needs a better TV broadcast feel - and updates of other games & stories that are going on in the league. A Halftime show with highlights of other games would be awesome as well to make the league feel more "alive".

What good games does 2K make aside from basketball? Baseball? Hockey? W W E...

NBA 2K's franchise is not perfect by the way..

Anyway, this game has so far to go I'd like to see a solid 60 minutes of NFL football, to start, and little else matters. Keep the focus there on the activity on the field, until you nail it. They went in the right direction by finally correcting blocking, at least improving it. Continue taking the arcade elements out of the game and stop ignoring glitches.

I have never bought or played a copy of Madden in PS3 or PS4 gen yet, the demos and info about these games post release have been incredibly disappointing.

One thing I'd like to see particularly is a dynamic camera, most games are adapting to this. I'd like when a throw is made, control and a dynamic cam is focused immediately and seamlessly on your receiver and allows you to directly control yac or fighting to make the catch against your defender almost completely in 1st person. Doing something like this would change the way people view the franchise, but more than just that kind of feature needs to be done. And it all starts with the quality of gameplay they allow us to have on the field, no glitchy pass coverage, shotty ai blocking, poorly modeled running... those kind of things.

So to the poll, none of the above for me

How many years have we read about "New Presentation", yet it ALWAYS seems like the same old thing.

Last year was an improvement in the right direction, but at this point, EA Sports really has zero equity left with the sports gaming community.

Both NBA 2K and MLB:The Show are both great in terms of just gameplay and even presentation whereas Madden has been lacking in both since PS2/XBox days.

Damn shame considering the NFL is the most popular sport in our country and they have exclusive rights to it and can't get it done right.

How about just calling interference once in awhile?Or just make special teams play a little realistic? As far as what was announced? I like the player models.
 
# 13 Cowboy008 @ 04/29/14 04:16 PM
I'm glad they are focusing on the Defense now.
 
# 14 Choc1ateTHUND3R @ 04/29/14 04:25 PM
Hopefully the CPU defense don't know all my audibles this year like they spying on my practices. I hate when i go from Run to a PA pass in the SAME FORMATION and the d drops back, the to a quick pass they stay, and then to the run and they stack the box.
 
# 15 Blitzburgh @ 04/29/14 04:45 PM
Player lock! Finally! I am very anxious to see how this and the new cameras work. Player movement is also very important along with the QB throwing motions....
 
# 16 thesportsguru11 @ 04/29/14 06:14 PM
None of the above.

As mentioned, this series has so far to go to even get close to a solid all-around product. I agree 110%. EA will just blow these ideas off, or make these, but with some major flaw they will never fix. All they focus on is Ultimate Team anyway. Unless they can really wow me in the Demo, no Madden here.

Madden is dead to me.

And I don't miss it. Not one bit.
 
# 18 ultralow36 @ 04/29/14 07:24 PM

People have talked about what they want from Madden. The make wishlist and beg for simulation football every year. That ain't happening either.

There's a better chance 2k comes back than having madden deliver a great game in my opinion.

Actually, in connection to my first post, the only thing that has me intrigued is Luke Kuechly featured in the trailer, maybe this means he got the cover. I'm a huge BC fan, and Kuechly is probably my favorite player in the NFL behind Tom Brady and Logan Ryan. It would be the best thing ever to see him on the cover.
