Your Thoughts on Connected Franchise Improvements with Madden NFL 16

Posted June 1st, 2015 at 4:00 pm


Late last week EA Sports revealed the new features and improvements that have been made for Connected Franchise Mode in Madden NFL 16.

Many of the features hit on requests from those who have played the mode in recent years, including the ability to sim a specific result, Combine information being available without the need to spend scouting points, and the ability to practice freely with the team.

On the flip side the “Goals” system has its merits but also drawbacks and it’s been expanded this year down to individual drives. Displaying goal progress in the “ticker” during the game is a questionable design decision. There was also no mention of enhancements to presentation and world-building which has been an area where progress was desperately needed.
