Brian has posted a full Madden 21 next-gen gameplay video here. It’s a simulation AI vs. AI game on broadcast view between the Bucs and Patriots.

We’ll also be posting one other AI vs. AI game over the weekend.

  1. Watched most of the first half and darn does this look good. Seeing the clean screen without all the play calling GUI looks nice. One thing is for sure, EA removing the walkup to the line of scrimmage a few years ago was stupid. It ruins the presentation even more in this instance as we get to see the players in the huddle extensively and then boom! They're all at the line of scrimmage immediately. Just looks weird. I preferred the walkup myself, heck I even preferred the odd scramble of players to get back to the line late in game for quick snaps. It wasn't perfect but it was better than what we have now.
    Other than a few passes to the sideline where AI receivers just go out of bounds for a loss things looks pretty good. If I could just get a PS5 I'd be set! :)
    Thanks for the footage.

    I'm not sure if when they switched to Frostbite is when they cut out some of that stuff or not. I think it would make sense if that's about when it happened. But yeah, I know they struggled with pathing and whatnot to get guys back to the line on hurry up and all that -- and also game speed they were worried about with how much clicking you'd have to do to hurry people to the line every time rather than waiting -- but I agree that I'd still like to see a full-on version where every movement is tracked rather than using the trickery cuts.
    Hurry up is the one spot I don't mind them just warping because it was always just kinda annoying when dudes were 50 yards downfield and had to run back, but yeah the post-play cuts and pre-play cuts I'd like to see back more with more cameras etc.
    It's so beautiful. I played my first full PS5 game today (Pats/Cards) and I can't imagine how much better this will look in Madden 22 when it's designed for the new gen. But dang, it's pretty.

    Am I the only one who can't stand the look of the secondary pre-snap? DB's don't all have the same square stance every play. ESPECIALLY the safeties.

    Yeah, I'm with you there. A small touch, but would be nice to have more "set" postures for DBs and stuff.
    the broadcast camera looks really nice.
    Looks almost real at times. especially on a smaller screen or from a distance.
    I like it. like others have said, the cut away, no officials, some of the player reactions, defense all in the same stance takes away from immersion.
    Hopefully EA also focuses some of its resources on real-time presentation. I remember about 10/11 year ago that was all the rage in sports gaming. less cutaways and more real time presentation.
    Hopefully these developers revisit these ideas this generation

    Yeah I want to expand on this a bit more. I don't like the hurry up now where the players just warp back to the line and they are all set with an automatic time run off. This kills realism because think about in real life. Some plays take longer to recover from than others depending on if it is a short pass or deep pass, or even a run. Having a set in stone run-off time just kills it. I miss seeing the players run back to the line and watching the clock tick off. Sometimes you were lucky and could get it snapped with :01 left before expiring. Now it is automatic.
