Gamers who will be using the next-gen systems to play Madden NFL 25 are in for a treat. On Tuesday, EA Sports announced the new CoachGlass feature which will allow a second-screen experience for Madden players on the Xbox One.
CoachGlass allows players to use their tablet or mobile device to see opponent’s offensive tendencies, personnel groupings and major weapons, and suggests defensive plays designed to counter the offense’s biggest strengths.
The feature will be available as soon as the Xbox One launches in November.
Below is a video of the CoachGlass feature which is sure to redefine the way we all play the game:
Considering how poor I am on the defensive side of the ball, this is going to be a great tool that will enhance the gaming experience.
Here is more on the new feature:
CoachGlass is useful for all skill levels, as it can be used to select plays based on offensive personnel groups, or to track tendencies at various downs and distances in order help players predict the opposition’s tendencies, and call plays to defend the part of the field their opponent is likely to attack. CoachGlass also allows users to browse through previous plays called during a given game, with filters to sort by down, distance and more. Best of all, CoachGlass can be used at any point in a game, as well as both online and offline in Play Now, Connected Franchise, Madden Ultimate Team and other modes.
CoachGlass also opens up new opportunities for co-op, allowing one player to take the tablet or smartphone and act as defensive coordinator, while another player handles the on-field action. It’s a perfect way for players to teach friends and loved ones the strategy of football in a fun and approachable way.
CoachGlass is part of SmartGlass for Xbox One and is exclusive to Microsoft. CoachGlass can be accessed on any tablet or smartphone that is able to download SmartGlass for Xbox One.
If you weren’t excited for the next-gen release of Madden 25 before, the new feature should take care of that.
