Maddenoliday is creeping closer and closer, and we couldn’t be more excited! So today, on the eve of one of our favorite holidays, we’d like to share some expert tips and tricks from our friends over at PrimaGames.com and EA SPORTS.
To prepare you for the upcoming launch, Prima Games is sharing some expert tips from the kind folks at EA SPORTS. Here’s a sample of what you can find…
EA SPORTS has spent a lot of time improving just about every aspect of Madden NFL 13. EA Tiburon promises the most complete overhaul the series has seen in a generation. The power of the new Infinity Engine fundamentally changes the action on the field, while Connected Careers rewrites the rules of what career and franchise modes should look like. Add in Total Control Passing and Ball Hawk and Madden NFL 13 is set to deliver the most authentic NFL experience ever. Patrick Bellanca, designer on Madden NFL 13, offers some tips and tricks for armchair quarterbacks below.
“Total Control Passing is the ability for the quarterback to lead a player and throw a fade that was difficult in the past,” said Bellanca. “It puts ownership on the receiver to get his body in position and his eyes on the football and get in position.”
To offset this, EA SPORTS created the Read and React Defense AI, which means the defense is looking for the ball before they can make a play on the ball. In the past, a random linebacker might catch an interception out of the blue. Now he has to turn and see the ball to catch it.
“You can now confidently throw the ball where previously it would be intercepted and still make a completed pass in a very small window,” said Bellanca. “This will especially benefit players like New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who has a lot of weapons and skills. His ability to throw the ball into the smallest window is there, where Blaine Gabbert is more mobile and more likely to throw a ball early. Those guys can still throw into space, but they may not hit as precisely as Peyton Manning or Tom Brady.”
