EA has released their Madden NFL 22 trailer showing off Dynamic Gameday, which is powered by three new features: Gameday Atmosphere, Gameday Momentum, and Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI.
Gameday Atmosphere connects players to their NFL fandom through the crowds, environments, and presentation elements that enhance and impact every game. New Gameday Momentum performance-based mechanics, including Home Field Advantage which provides a unique game condition tailored to each NFL team’s stadium atmosphere, swing momentum, bringing the tangible influence of momentum to life on the field. Lastly, Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI, powered by real world player data that will evolve throughout the season, changes AI behavior and team tendencies to make NFL superstars and the personality of each team more true-to-life.
The following bullets are PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S exclusive.
- Gameday Atmosphere – It’s a whole new vibe from the sidelines to the seats. Immersive and authentic stadium environments deliver the true-to-life highs and lows of every NFL game and affect momentum during pressure moments.
- Gameday Momentum – Feel the momentum swings of every game via the new performance-based momentum meter. Earn in-game perks called M-Factors and feed off the energy of your environment to clutch up when it matters most.
- Home Field Advantage – Every NFL stadium in Madden NFL 22 is equipped with a unique Home Field Advantage† modifier that, when triggered, can shift momentum into (or out of) your favor. When you’re on the road in Kansas City and the deafening crowd noise delays your audibles, you’ll be wishing you weren’t in Kansas any more.
- Next Gen Stats Star-Driven AI – Powered by Next Gen Stats, the new Star-Driven AI† in Madden NFL 22 enables the smartest gameplay experience ever. Integrated with real-world data, the new AI is built to emulate player and team tendencies that will evolve throughout the season as teams’ stats change.
“Last year, we had more players than ever in Madden and we’re looking forward to bringing a new experience in Madden NFL 22 that will be more emotional, authentic, and realistic with Dynamic Gameday improving gameplay across the game,” said Seann Graddy, Executive Producer of Madden NFL 22. “We’re always collecting feedback from our players to improve Madden NFL with each edition and in real time with our live service during the year. We’ll continue that approach this year, including doubling down on our commitment to Franchise, maintaining the momentum we started in Madden NFL 21, by delivering more of the top-requested Franchise features both at launch and throughout the season.”
Franchise Mode in Madden NFL 22 will make players feel more connected and in control of their team, with more detailed staff management and skill tree progression systems, and comprehensive weekly game strategy with a revamped Season Engine that keeps things fresh every week. Franchise will also continue to see improvements throughout the year via multiple live service updates.
Madden NFL’ s newest mode, The Yard, will feature an all-new single player campaign and avatar progression system that shares progress, rewards and vanity with Face of the Franchise. Face of The Franchise returns with an all-new story, player class system, and the option to play on the defensive side of the ball as a linebacker for the first time. Superstar KO will bring multiplayer squad play to NFL teams with the addition of real-world NFL teams to the mode for the first time. Plus, Madden Ultimate Team will deliver a new season of content, allow for halftime adjustments to Superstar X-Factors and integrate Next Gen Stats* to track stats for player items.
