Madden NFL 15 Expanded First Feature Details, Ultimate Edition, and New Trailer

Posted June 6th, 2014 at 9:45 am


In advance of E3 next week, EA Sports has released some additional details on Madden NFL 15 and a new “gameplay” trailer which includes a brief look at some replay footage.

As suspected earlier based on retailer listings there is a special edition of the game and it’ll be called the “Ultimate Edition”. For $70 it includes what is said to be $40 of Ultimate Team content. Combined with the pre-order bonus of $15 of Ultimate Team content, if that is included with the special edition of the game, consumers who enjoy the mode will really be able to get a strong running start.

Up until now the only info on features was limited to what had been sent to retailers. That included pre-game and halftime shows, dynamic player lock cameras, and a crowd-sourced play calling system. EA expanded a bit in three areas today with mentions of redesigned zone and man coverage logic, NFL Films presentation, six gameplay cameras to choose from, and some kind of skill competition called “The Gauntlet”.

When watching an early trailer for Madden it’s important to keep in mind the game often hasn’t ended up looking as good as the footage presented by EA Sports suggests and some would say they’ve simply been intentionally deceptive with them. At this time last year here is what the company claimed you’d be playing with Madden NFL 25. There’s not a whole lot to analyze in this one but continue on to check it out along with the three main feature descriptions and leave any thoughts in the comments!
