The latest entry in the “Madden” video game franchise will launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 10th says publisher Electronic Arts.
This year’s edition’s biggest additions include Real Player Motion (RPM), which creates more realistic character movements and animations. Players can push blockers to gain more yards and make quick, realistic cuts up-field after the catch.
A popular game mode called Madden Ultimate Team is also scoring improvements, while MUT Squads is back, and the leaderboard-driven reward system Solo Battles is also incorporated.
“Madden” creative director Rex Dickson left EA earlier this month. In a Twitter statement, he hinted at a ‘new direction’ for the series.
