Madden NFL 17 News Post



EA Sports has detailed new additions to this year's franchise mode on their website.

The first blog post EA detailed a faster way to play franchise and new gameplanning features.

Play The Moments: Experience Franchise faster than ever. Jump into game-defining plays, drives and situations that matter to you, speeding up your experience and delivering more fun. For players who want to span their career the entire 30 years but are limited in time, Play the Moment will be your new way to play.

Quote:
"How does it work?

Before heading down to the field, choose between Play the Moments, Offense Only, Defense Only, or the Full Game. When you choose Play the Moments, the game will be simulated until it detects a key moment and then prompts you to jump right into the action. If you donít want to play that particular moment, you can easily skip it. Choosing Offense Only or Defense Only before loading into the game allows you to easily play just one side of the ball.

Youíll be able to switch in and out of all the modes easily as you play your game. For example, you can start by playing the Full Game and then switch to Play the Moments at half-time once you have a sizable lead. Itís up to you on how you use it."
There will be different times you are called to 'play a moment'.

EA says that sometimes you will be prompted to play a full drive at the beginning of a game in order to get a lead early. In the last two minutes of a half you may be called upon to drive down the field and manage the clock and perhaps on defense you'll be called in on 3rd downs to get the ball back for your team. Really any 'big' moment of a game you can be called in on.

There will be a new sim speed feature which allows you to slow the game down and watch it unfold in real time during super-sim and during moments. This is an oft requested feature that is now being fulfilled.

Another big addition is that super-sim will now take into account quarter speed in order to try to deliver a game as close as possible to the 120 play-per-game NFL average as well.

Check out all of the new additions to 'Play the Moment' and Super-Sim on EA's site!

The big decision is exactly what I was envisioning. Hopefully there's alot of in depth commentary variations.

They show that you can edit stats and all of that, but I didn't read anything about editing players build, physical features or names.

Don't have a chance to read the articles yet but how will the game ticker effect people who want to play as all 32 teams? I believe in NCAA 14 you had the option to play every game and it was weird because the ticket would show scores but after the game you were in you could go back and play the game. Thanks!

In The Moment mode. I'm a Father of 3 and have limited time to do Franchise play. This is the mode I've been waiting for.

And the tendencies are back!! That's a huge improvement for franchise leagues.

You will be able to adjust appearance, ratings, traits, and contract information for the entire league, letting you make tweaks as you see fit to alter players.
I'm guessing you can edit everything except for names.

It's says those scores will be shown in the ticker too

I'm happy we have a ticker and customization (even though I don't mess with that stuff) finally, but for all the hype about cfm, it seemed a bit underwhelming. Hopefully there is more in the other blog.

This also means supersim has finally been re-worked. Just amazing.
