Re: Madden NFL 18 Features New Target Passing, Coverage Assignments & More

Kind of drawing a conclusion based on random things, but... 18 is listed as being 2-6 players in the Xbox store, plus mentions local co op. I wonder if this would signal team play is back in game. Rex has hinted that they wanted to bring it back, and it used to be 3 vs 3 so this would fit that.

Re: Madden NFL 18 Features New Target Passing, Coverage Assignments & More

I'd hold off on getting excited about "simulation" mode until we actually get more info. It could be something as simple as arcade and competitive removing anything outside of the user's control (penalties, inaccurate passes), while simulation is the same old stuff.

The new coverage assignments sound great in theory. However, much like with formation subs last year, if the CPU doesn't utilize them it's just another advantage the user has that the CPU doesn't.

Hopefully the fact that Norman, Zeke, etc., (players who wear shooter sleeves) don't have on those hideous one-long sleeves means that Madden finally is working on putting real shooter sleeves in the game.

All this ish is fine and dandy, but....


What about the clock management, franchise mode, and etc???

I mean I like the addition of gameplay styles, but I need video evidence.

Re: Madden NFL 18 Features New Target Passing, Coverage Assignments & More

Definitely looks promising. Target Passing could be a game changer if it means untethered passing. Unique play style settings could be monumental if done right. Hopefully being that it says authentic rules it means they've added more penalties. I also really hope sliders have been completely redone to accommodate these new styles. Graphics look better. I'm guessing franchise won't be much different either.

That's mostly going to be new higher-resolution textures and more audio; content has a heavy disc footprint. Given that the game is getting a graphics overhaul with Frostbite and also a story mode, an increased disc footprint to support those features makes sense.
