Madden NFL 15 Connected Franchise Details, Trailer and Screenshots


EA Sports released a plethora fresh new details of connected franchise today, with big changes coming to the mode and how it will work this year. You can check out the full details here.

Here are some highlights:
  • Confidence is new this year, and replaces hot and cold streaks. Really high or really low confidence is going to affect player ratings, all players start at a neutral 50 confidence level.
  • Game prep will allow you to earn XP or increase player confidence from week to week, allowing you to practically choose whether you are a rah-rah coach or a down to business type of coach.
  • CPU teams have extensive logic that determines what they work on every week. Bad teams will focus mostly on developing their players, while contenders will focus on confidence first and then earn XP if confidence isn’t an issue.
  • Free agents now take much more than money into account when deciding to sign with you or not. Playing time, scheme, your coaching prestige and more will be factors.
  • Draft classes are now random.
  • Owner Mode is now much more challenging when it comes to making a profit, and teams with older stadiums in smaller markets may be better off building new stadiums or relocating altogether.
  • You can now sim to points in the season, with an option to actually sim 10 years into the future.
  • New screen to see how players progress/regress.
  • Relocations are tuned way down and can be turned off.
  • You can now fire your head coach during the season.
  • The simulation engine now includes things like consistency, confidence and development. In Madden 15, young players with great development traits will have slightly better “simmed” stats than normal. This allows great young players to progress quickly and become stars in the league.
What do you think of the additions to the mode this year?

Platform: PS3 / PS4 / Xbox 360 / Xbox One

glad that they said the cmp will use the xp as we'll as the cmp will change uniforms during the season and looks like were stuck with ea's default draft class's so no editing those.




I like what they have done.

Re: Madden NFL 15 - Connected Franchise Deep Dive

Ok, I am intrigued by what I've read.

Only question is they mention you can fire staff during the season (Head Coach, Scout, or Trainer) but there is no mention of coordinators.

But in the confidence section it shows D Coordinator and a RB Coach???

I am hoping Coordinators are in the game this year.

Wow, the changes look good!

I loved this part:

CPU teams have extensive logic that determines what they work on every week. Bad teams will focus mostly on developing their players, while contenders will focus on confidence first and then earn XP if confidence isn’t an issue.

No changes to the menus at all. Look exactly the same.

But features seem to be good.

Re: Madden NFL 15 - Connected Franchise Deep Dive

Finally, random draft classes. I liked what I saw, and it kinda looks like position coaches and coordinators have returned. They have sealed the deal for me.
