With Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles, EA are looking to avoid getting sacked on a third down by making the right play that’s going to see them cruise past the redzone to score an all important touchdown. Meanwhile, we’re trying not to get tackled by an LT for all of those cheesy American football references. The point at hand is that with the current gen version of Madden NFL 25 already on store shelves, EA now have to prove that the game is worth a purchase on PS4 and Xbox One and now, with the help of a two minute trailer, the likelihood of us all shelling out for the title has just gotten a little bit higher.
In the 120+ seconds worth of Madden NFL 25 gameplay footage (it wasn’t clear as to whether what’s in the trailer was running on PS4 or Xbox One) EA introduce us to all of the fancy new branded features that their title will be running down the field with. ‘Player Sense’ is reportedly set to make characters more like intelligent, game aware players and less like reanimated muscly corpses while ‘True Step’ is the slightly gimmicky name EA are giving to Madden NFL 25’s new motion capabilities and you can watch both features in action after the break.

While few will doubt how Madden NFL 25 will play, as EA are exceptionally great at chucking in much needed improvements year on year, we’re more concerned with how it looks. The game does boast the use of EA’s new ‘Ignite’ game engine, that they’ve been touting since the beginning of the year, but whether or not that automatically equals a giant PS4 or Xbox One leap in terms of graphics is another story. However, that being said, EA are well-seasoned vets at the game of sports titles so if anyone can make their game look good before it suits up and heads onto the field later this year, its them.
The Madden NFL 25 release date is the 14th of November on PS4 and the 22nd of November on Xbox One.
