  • Pass Rush was not touched from the beta. It’s there loud and proud.
  • New player models look great like they did in the beta.
  • Not sure if the loose undershirt was tweaked a little after the beta. It sticks out a bit more. I think it could be a bit closer to the body. It looks sort of like a small tennis skirt.
  • Locomotion is so good.
  • Off platform throws are missing on default sliders for myself and the CPU.
  • Not seeing the tipped interception issue from the beta. Nearly every ball is finding grass if it is jarred loose.
  • CPU QB pocket movement is in a good place. Not perfect, but it’s nice to see them move in all directions to avoid the rush.

IlluminatusUIUCPlayed 2 H2H matches. So far the game plays great IMO, I’m still figuring out the passing mechanics but I like what I am seeing. I need to build my own playbook to really open things up but I’m not sure if I wanna waste my demo time on that.

CujoMatty:

  • Only 1 game so far(ps5). Was really impressed so far. Game looks great. I like the hair and cloth physics. Player models are so much better
  • Running gets better every year and that cut mechanic is fantastic.
  • Wr db interaction is great. I didn’t see any real dramatic issues in coverage which ultimately killed 22 for me.
  • Everything feels real organic with tackling and animations but with the freedom comes some jank. I expected that and am not upset by it.
  • The new passing mechanics are cool but I didn’t find myself really caring about it and more or less did things like I normally do.
  • The atmosphere justt feels so much better and immersive.
  • I played a pre season game and the cpu QB was a bit too accurate for my liking especially for a backup.
  • Really liked how the cpu qb moved around and sensed pressure.
  • Cpu run game was non existent. Hoping it’s a one game thing but this has been my number 1 complaint for a long time.

Madden NFL 23 officially releases on August 19.

    Got the 10 hour ea play trial downloaded and installed on PS5. Played half of the super bowl while the last part finished downloading. It was OK but didn't feel much different to 22 to me in the 20 minutes I played. I quit to let the last 8 minutes of the download finish so I can try other things beside the super bowl. But it is able to be played now if you get it. At least the trial is.
    Ha I already see people having the same issues as the past 2 years. The trial will no longer work properly on Xbox because of the quick resume future. It runs out the clock on ur trial automatically

    Yes on Xbox make sure you fully close out the app. Don’t just dashboard and turn the console off.

    Strange, I didn't have the issue last year, nor did I have it with NHL.
    It says expired after download so it was the first launch of the game.

    Have anyone on Xbox being able to successfully play 1 game yet?

    Yep. Working with zero issues on my Series S. Even closed out of the game and launched it again and have zero issues.

    For those with the trial version on PS5. Did you preorder already and have your normal copy pre installed? If so, how did you go about getting the trial version to run?

    For PC the full early, ALL-MADDEN edition is out. I'm playing it now on Twitch.
    For consoles we have the 10 hour trial out but none of the full games are out until later this evening, likely midnight or so
    I purchased the All Madden version of the game for my XSX, simply because i wanted to start playing on the 16th as advertised. What i seem to have pre loaded, and a trial version of, is the Standard Version. Anyone else seeing this?
    Trying to figure out what exactly I have going on over here.
    Did the cover change or something? I was expecting my version to say All Madden and have John Madden holding a football breaking through the wall.
    What I have is what looks like John Madden being propped up inside of a stadium with his right arm raised.

    Today is the 15th so all you get is a trial. You get what you purchased at midnight tonight.

    I was getting trial expired on Xbox earlier today and uninstalled and redownload the trial and it worked

    Tried that still getting expired message.

    Thanks. Just got home from being out and I was able to play the game. I don’t have ea play or game pass. Not sure why. But I’ll take it. Either way the hall of fame edition should be good for tonight at midnight.

    That happened to me a couple times and I just quit the game fully, relaunched and then I got in. Took me a couple tries of doing that before it worked.

    Have you seen Aaron Donald's body type ? He is very very slim like a DB :y14::nocomprende:
    EA...

    He definitely does not look like a DB lol.

    Playing the Xbox one version. Very boring gameplay same as last year with no real Improvement. Hopefully the franchise mode is identical to next generation. Yep next year I need to finally upgrade. I have the cash now to buy I'm cheap. Hopefully there will be a price drop.
    Am I doing something wrong? It doesn't seem to be available on PS4. I have the All Madden edition pre-ordered and I have EA Play. I can't find the EA Play hub/app anywhere on my PS4, however...

    This answers my question from another thread asking if the new body types were added as options in the player editor. However, it appears from this pic that the editor is unchanged.

    Yes, your post was moved to the Q&A thread. I answered there. Can't change it for created players either.

    i downloaded, got the ‘trial expired.’ then, i quit the app, re-opened and it let me play the legacy game and i believe would’ve let me continue play any mode. but, i had to take the dog out, so i quit the app, again, to stop the trial timer. when i tied to play, again, it now says, ‘trial expired,’ again. so, this is a wonky issue going on right now. i’m on series x.

    I'm having the same issue. Except I can only get past the passing tutorial and then get the trial expired message. I don't know if the game is fully unlocked yet.

    Got the trial today maybe I’m missing something is franchise mode offline strictly solo now? Can’t do 32 team select anymore??

    Its been like that for 10 years since madden 13 killed franchise mode, you have to spend 30 mins creating 32 separate profiles to have 32 team control

    Finally got in after restarting several times.. for some reason I can't stream it to twitch.
    If I close the game, I have to keep restarting to get it to work again (which I'm not having luck).. this is crazy.
    I finally got back in after leaving the trial screen up until it was at the press any button screen.
    I'm not trying to be negative, but I got bored of the demo after about 45 minutes bouncing around different places.
    I noticed positive gameplay differences, for sure, and the new passing mechanics, but this feels like just another same old Madden title to me or maybe Madden 22.5, if I'm being kind.
    ***I emphasis the "to me" part.***
    I found myself skipping the same QB intros, pre-games, and the atmosphere feels exactly the same which isn't good. Presentation is terrible, honestly.
    I didn't play the beta and I can tell there have been nice improvements to gameplay, but the franchise interface and offerings are the same stale stuff all over the place with the terrible Twitter interactions, same lame coach creation, player profile design, training, etc. I know they updated scouting which was needed, but at this point that's like vacuuming or shampooing the carpet of a car in a junk yard.
    I went from really excited about Madden to possibly skipping it like I did with The Show this year.
    I want to love Madden so much but--I dunno--the game may have just run its course for me. And that's ok I guess.
    Maybe I've just moved on and haven't recognized it yet
    This really sucks. I'd love to play. Been waiting all day to just relax and play now.
    Is this a widespread issue? Because I can't seem to find much on it.
    I've closed the game and relaunched about 10 times. Even turned the system off and rebooted it.

    Are you having the same issue I am? with it saying it can't start the app?

    No, mine is the trial expired error.

    I'm stuck on the passing tutorial screen. It won't allow me to exit from the screen just to play. Anybody have any ideas?

    Just pick a style and move on. You can always go back to the tutorials later. I had to choose a side for the Madden game. Just get into it, then quit and you'll get to the menu.

    I have the same error. The one time it didn't come up, I got to the passing tutorial and then that just gets me into a tutorial loop with nothing else I can do. I exit out and then bam back to trial expired error.

    What I did was as soon as I hit press whatever to start. I closed the game, waited like 10 seconds and went back in and it worked.
    i think the fix for xbox users seeing the ‘trial expired’ screen is to do this:
    1. open madden 23, and WAIT!
    2. leave the xbox ‘you have X hours left on your trial’ screen on UNTIL the ‘press any button’ screen in madden loads.
    3. NOW, press the button on xbox screen to use trial
    4. now, press any button to start.
    this just worked for me, so it’s probably some wonky ‘xbox madden trial’ vs ‘madden trial’ subscription logic going on.
    so, the game needs to ‘fully load to press any button screen’ before you should select to use trial from xbox.

    I got past the trial expired error again and now I just get to the passing tutorial. No matter which one I pick, I either complete it or try exiting out and i just get dropped back to the same passing tutorial screen. I don't know how to get past that.

    Try doing the tutorial then when complete and it brings you back to the screen with all the passing tutorials, select the bottom option in whichever one you're on (I did it on the classic passing)
    I'm having to start the game, leave up the screen for start trial/go to store, then when it's at the press any button screen, click on the store and click go to game or something like that, then press B to exit the start trial/go to store and then the game loads.
    It's definitely quarky but once I'm in, I'm good unless I try to stream via Twitch then it says I'm not connected to the EA servers and after hitting OK a few times it gets me back into the game but Twitch never shows video in my stream.

    I'll give this try and see if it works for me. It's been pretty annoying but I will say, I am getting used to the new passing :)
    For those on Xbox Series X getting the Trail has ended message.
    When you get to the screen where it says Press Any Button, press any button to start the loading bar. While it's loading press the Xbox/Home button to go to the Dashboard. Click back into the game Start Trail, you should get a disconnected from the network message but keep Clicking A and it should let you in.

    Thanks AT, I've been getting that disconnected from the network message and just exiting out. I was getting so frustrated.
