The site mentions drafting your team from the group of legendary players. Does that mean the entire team is constructed of Legends? Or will a handful be sprinkled in within a team made up mostly of generic players? That is probably the biggest thing that people will be wondering now.

Having the Legends included is a good marketing move. The casual consumer base needs something to identify with and these famous NFL players from the past give them that.

The website also confirms the price of the game, which will be released on the Xbox 360 and PS3. No official release date has been set. It’ll be the standard $59.99
