*MADDEN 17 INFO*
The game is set to release on August 23rd this year. As usual EA Access members on the Xbox One can try Madden NFL 17 before it’s released for a limited time as part of a Play First Trial, this is only on Xbox One.
EA will not be at E3 this year but will have their own function “EA Play” which we will be at to show you guys the newest features and gameplay from Madden 17, just like we did last year for the subs that have been with us from the beginning.
MAKING RATINGS MATTER
To help out during the run game, users can turn on the optional Threat Cone, which looks like last year’s Tackle Cone. Through this the game calculates the angle and distance of an oncoming defender, figures out the ball carrier’s special move ratings and what he’s good at, and prompts the player to push the appropriate button (like spin move, juke, stiff arm, etc.) at the right time.
Special moves also breakout into four categories. Sprint moves (R-trigger + special move) are fast moves that only work against one defender at a time. Standard moves (no modifying button + special move) are slower and work against multiple defenders. Precision moves (L-trigger + special move) are the slowest moves you can make, but can be used to fake out unlimited defenders. Finally, steerable moves (both triggers + special move) are the most controllable since you can point the direction you want to go in (although spins, jukes, back jukes, and trucks are not steerable).
Tackle Battles are also controlled by ratings this year. If you’re being gang tackled you have a short window to hit a specific button prompt to break out of the gang tackle. This was done automatically last year. Hitting the Tackle Battle button also applies to defenders making the tackle.
A UNIVERSE OF PHYSICS
After years of trying, Madden 16’s physics finally brought more realism to the game’s hits and tackles. However, Dickson admits not everything on the field got converted to the new physics system, such as the football itself. Now he says the ball is in the “same universe” as the players.
For years the ball would snap to a player’s hand in a catch even though in the process the ball might be pulled through a defender. Now it will collide with body parts and be knocked out when appropriate.
Since the ball is reacting to more objects, there are more drops for receivers in traffic, and initiating a possession catch in traffic (and alternately not doing run-after-catch in traffic) is more important.
Since there is no scripting for the path of the ball, it bounces differently after tips. EA made new animations for reacting to tips, attempted and successful fumble recoveries, and knee/ankle/sliding catches. Also, the player models can move their arms better to track the ball.
THE RUNNING GAME
The defenders’ gap awareness now means that offensive linemen must zone block defenders coming through those gaps. This is not only an added AI responsibility, but it also enables the creation of cutback lanes for running backs. It will be interesting to see how linemen respond to defenders attacking gaps, and whether identifying defenders on the edge and in space is something they can do this year.
EA is redoing players’ cleats and gloves, and offering new sleeve options.
