Madden NFL 15 News Post


GoodGameBro has put in over 20 hours behind the sticks of Madden NFL 15. Due to embargo, they can only talk about the presentation and visuals of the game. If those things interest you, make sure you give it a read.

Celebrations are all dynamic. This adds a sense of realism and makes the game look more fluid. The best example I saw of this was when Alfred Morris scored a touchdown against me. I tackled Morris into the endzone and he rolled over and celebrated by pointing both hands in the air. After celebrating on the ground, he got up off the turf and did his signature “home run” celebration. This all happened without any cut scenes; all of this happened in real time. This new addition helps immersion immensely. Gone are the days when a touchdown is scored on one side of the field and the cut scene shows the player celebrating on the opposite side of the endzone.

In M25, couldn't you stay in zoom cam the whole game? After the snap wouldn't it pop out enough to see both wideouts? I remember using a camera, maybe it wasn't called zoom, that let me do that in M25 and the graphics really looked a lot better than viewing through standard.

Sounds like "Living Worlds" got kicked down the road to M16 or taken off the board entirely. That's a shame.

Will we still have injury updates during the game. And also will we hear about the cpu injury updates? But so far it sounds very promising.

Yeah that was a huge issue for me. I personally hated all the camera views in 25. I prefer the zoom cam but in 25 when you pulled the camera back presnap to see your play, the outer edges of the field were cut off & if you were in a 5 wide receiver set you couldn't see your edge receivers. I hope they fixed this & made improvements the all of the camera options. NCAA 14 cameras were way better in my opinion. For the love of God can we finally get CUSTOM CAM back EA?

Im looking forward to seeing the new banners and stats overlay screens.

Ridiculous. Shocked that they touted this last year as a "feature" and a game 9 years ago did it better. So much for using the new systems horsepower.

As a presentation guy this all sounds great, the one thing I am really hoping for are clips from games around the league. How cool would it be to be playing a game and have a cutaway to a game involving a conference rival or show the winning play from a earlier game.

That may be a lot to ask for but I can hope

had to chime in on the new camera angles. is it me, or does the new defensive camera look like backbreaker?

I would say it's more similar to NCAA's play lock defensive camera, just a hunch.

This news is all fine and dandy, but it doesn't mean a thing to me if it doesn't apply to online cfm as well. Playing offline has been drastically different, presentation wise, compared to playing online the last few years. It's about time they make both equal as far as presentation is concerned.

yes, yes, yes, i too agree. I do feel that once again, the presentation will only be for offline, so I was curious, would they still have time to ensure that presentation would be for both online CFM's (not necessarily ranked matches) because it would totally add to the immersion. Have it to where both users would have to press the A button to skip past the presentation (this giving us the option, and as we all know, having options is good). Would we have to tweet the mess out of the madden team and ask if they could put it in or how would it work?

Finally got to read this write up, my favorite part being;

"The presentation aspect of Madden NFL 15 immediately reminded me of watching a game on CBS...."

Seems like Tiburon has finally gone away from video game presentation and cut scenes, opting for real time and realistic broadcast presentation. I think this is so important for immersion and will be interested to see some E3 gameplay videos in the coming days, to see for myself.

I'm big on presentation, so I hope this is the case. I'm guarding my optimism though--only because they mention they are adding NFL films cameras or camerawork to presentation. And when I watch an NFL broadcast on CBS, I definitely don't see NFL Film-like camera work.

I feel like they are trying to straddle the fence between broadcast, what-you-see-on-tv and trying to replicate what it's like to be a player on the field. They either want it to look like what you see on your couch, or they want you to FEEL what it feels like to be Peyton Manning on the field. I think that Jeckyl and Hyde duality is a problem, because you don't end up committing yourself to doing one thing absolutely perfectly.

NCAA football started this with the break aways from your game to in studio scores without the highlights

So madden could easily start from there and build on it, if they want

I wish they would bring back the NFL Films music or give us the option for custom soundtracks.
 
# 17 Aggies7 @ 06/10/14 01:53 AM
I wonder if they added something for taking a knee at the end of the game, so your team doesn't walk around like lost cattle after a kneel down until the clock runs out

And malky I agree that they should add the studio updates like NCAA had. Start small with just commentary and score and in years to come add the highlights

One last thing, I believe I saw someone ask about a weekly recap show. I imagine that would've already been announced in presentation information, but in all honesty I could be held until the Franchise information comes out. Just a thought.

I did see a chew clock feature mentioned in one of the TSO impressions. It was the same one that said the kick meter and wind direction had been fixed.

SMH @ Madden 2015 and we STILL don't get a playable custom camera angle to adjust to OUR liking.


Whats the deal? Do they not care? Or do they just not listen?

Yes the Franchise Play interview talks more about it, I'll try to add it to the forums if someone hasn't posted it yet.
