Madden NFL 15 allows players to transform into their rival’s worst nightmare with a new breed of defense, built to challenge the best offenses in the NFL. A new arsenal of pass rush moves, an intuitive tackling system, improved coverage logic, and immersive new camera angles make defense more exciting and fun than ever. Fans can call plays with confidence thanks to an all-new crowd-sourced recommendation engine built from millions of online games played by the Madden NFL community. Add in all-new broadcast-inspired presentation and it’s not just football, it’s Madden Season.
Like the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks, you can win championships and bask in the glory of success by building a great defense fit to challenge the best offenses in the game. Fans will also experience an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day like never before with dramatic all-new camera angles, as well as dynamic pre-game, halftime features, and the most immersive defensive gameplay control in franchise history.
This year EA is once again collaborating with ESPN to give fans the opportunity to select which player will grace the cover of Madden NFL 15. In light of last year’s record-breaking vote, fans can look forward to a highly-competitive contest featuring some big-name matchups and intense rivalries. Fans can tune in to the NFL Draft on ESPN and NFL Network on May 8 at 8pm ET for a special Cover Vote announcement.
The Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) mode allows fans to collect some of the best NFL players from the past and present, upgrade their squad into an unstoppable force and then dominate any opposition they face.
In Madden Ultimate Team, fans can earn coins by completing online head-to-head games or single-player solo challenges which, in turn, allow them to purchase packs with new players, coaches, playbooks, stadiums and more, or head to the auction house to bid on specific items. This year, several new features have been added to streamline the process of acquiring new items and upgrading a team. Players can now easily sort, view and manage items in their binder; promoting players, adding them to collections, extending contracts and more, all from a single screen. The revamped lineup screens also show at a glance which players are available at each position, allowing for quick and simple roster shuffling.
After you’ve chosen your favorite team and determined your Play Style, you’ll find the new Objectives screen. We’ve created a list of tasks to help you learn about the mode.
If you’re a new player, this is like a helpful friend. For veterans of MUT, it’s a way to tour some of the changes. When you complete five tasks on the Objectives list, you get a reward pack. So there’s reason for both beginners and veterans to go through the Objectives.
When you’re on the New Items screen, you’ll notice the new Single Item Viewer. From here, you can do just about anything with your new Item. You can also access this viewer from any item in your Item Binder. Moving your items around Madden Ultimate Team has never been easier.
Your next objective is to Change Your Team Lineup. The new lineup screen includes all the functionality of the old depth chart list in a new, concise format. Select a player to make a substitution, or just use Lineup Tools and Best Lineup to upgrade with the Items you’ve just received.
This year, you can choose Best Lineup by OVR or by Style Type. Don’t forget to go to Coaching & Equipment and put in the new coach you got in the Style Pack. His team style will match your choice too.
The new Item Binder includes every item in your Collection, so this is an easy way to manage your Roster, Pending Collection and Reserves. The new MUT binder makes it easy to select any item and do anything you want with it.
We have so much more to show you with Madden Ultimate Team, and we’ll be rolling it out in the next few weeks.
