Feature Reveal Plans for NCAA Football 13

Posted March 12th, 2012 at 4:00 pm

EA Sports has posted their schedule for feature reveals relating NCAA Football 13. Though the descriptions are vague there is quite a bit to glean from them. A new passing system, the addition of a studio analyst in Dynasty mode, and a new “Heisman Challenge” are on the way.

Of course after the state NCAA 12 released in it will be hard to truly buy into any claims EA makes regarding the upcoming product. Consumers generally react in the following year so sales will likely be affected and EA faces an uphill battle in winning back any trust that was lost. It remains to be seen whether these features will fill that void and whether they’ll actually be executed properly and to completion.
