Re: More Madden NFL 18 Features Revealed

So either they're holding back on franchise details or its just getting a lick of paint... Excited if the game play is good and visuals are great but I have a lot of trepidation over CFM now.

Re: More Madden NFL 18 Features Revealed

Interesting.

- No mention of story mode, so must be grouped into the forthcoming Frostibite reveals
- Franchise mode doesn't mention who you play. Just offense/defense/etc, no mention of coach, player, or GM.
- Play now starting from any point in the season and then letting you complete the season is a nice addition. Could see myself using that, which I haven't said about any feature outside of franchise mode in a long time.


Targeted passing sounds.... scary? lol.

Very interested to see how this works. It's gotta be something super simple and easy. If it means untethered receivers though I'm all for it. Color me intrigued.

I wonder when you create a new stadium, if you can create the landscape as well. Or if they have it already built in as the stadiums are already made for you. I still have dreams of putting my outdoor stadium deep in the jungle somewhere.

I want to see this in action, stat. Madden's passing controls have iteratively improved over the years but haven't seen a wholesale change since... well, ever?

I don't want to overstate it because I don't know what it is yet, but this could be a dramatic change in how we interact with and play quarterback in Madden.

A lot of good stuff here! Target passing is long overdue so I'm glad to see them finally implement it. Having an Arcade & Simulation mode is something that has been asked for by the Sim community for years so kudos to EA for getting that done.

With "enhanced visuals" I really hope they improved the sidelines as well. If they still have those generic player models with no names on jerseys, no accessories, all wearing the same facemask, etc.....the enhanced visuals won't mean much. Gotta get the sidelines to resemble the on field players.

I hope the physics engine got an upgrade as well. Don't want to see players walking through other players bodies when breaking the huddle, players walking through player's bodies lying on the field after tackles, limbs fusing/clipping together when getting up from pile ups, etc.... This stuff has to be cleaned up. If not then nothing else matters because it totally kills immersion. Player physics need to be consistent at all times meaning before, during & after the play. Looking forward to seeing the game in action.
