EA Sports today held their second Q&A on Twitter relating to next-gen Madden NFL 25, this time with responses behind handled by gameplay designer Clint Oldenburg who has led the effort to dramatically improve the play in the trenches. Late last week descriptions of what has been worked on with respect to blocking and pass rush accompanied a few video examples from gameplay and proved to be the most effective display of how next-gen will stand out compared to the product already on the market provided by the company so far.

The latest Q&A touches on subjects that include how much player ratings will actually matter for offensive and defensive lineman, the frequency of penalties, the formation of the pocket, and how the pass rush will in turn help the secondary.
