NCAA Football 11 Locomotion Blog, Video, and New Screenshots

Posted April 5th, 2010 at 3:16 pm

EA Sports has released a new blog detailing the new locomotion engine being introduced in NCAA Football 11. It will provide for more realistic player acceleration, better differentiation in styles of players across the different positions, momentum playing a larger role in making moves, and a better looking animation on long runs. Check out the full blog posting here which includes a video demonstrating the tech.

Over the past several months, we’ve been working hard on a new momentum-based locomotion engine that will significantly change core gameplay.  Locomotion includes running, turning and cutting; basically what any player is doing for the majority of a play.   The goal of this new locomotion technology is to create more realistic movements, while also maintaining responsiveness for the user.

This has also been confirmed to be in Madden 11.There is also a strip of seven screenshots from a single running play. That along with the video have been included after the break. As always feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments!
