The new features don’t reveal too much, if anything at all, in terms out how the game will play this year, but we do know more about what the development team’s focus has been on in between Madden 25 and Madden NFL 15. The new features coming to this year’s installment of Madden NFL include:
Deliver on Defense
Set the tone on defense with more control thanks to an all-new arsenal of pass rush moves, contain the open field with intuitive tackling mechanics, and play as a team with redesigned zone and man coverage logic all while being immersed in the play from the other side of the line, with defensive player lock cameras. Madden NFL 15 delivers on defense.

Let’s face it, when was the last time you truly had fun playing defense in a game of Madden? The Madden franchise, especially for the last few seasons, has been a game that has focused more on the offensive side of the ball than anything else. With the new attention towards bringing the defensive gameplay up to par, it seems as though the development team at EA Sports Tiburon his set on making this year’s game fun to play on both sides of the ball.
The overhauled defensive player logic should allow games to play out more like their real-life counterparts, and make them much more enjoyable for all parties involved.
The presentation features I don’t care about as much because the presentation can be as good as it is on TV, but it the gameplay isn’t what it should be, I won’t care one bit about how well it looks.
I’m a bit intrigued about the “Know Your Opponent” feature that EA Sports announced. If this means that the game will suggest plays based on data taken from your opponent’s game history, than that could go a long way in making the games play out a lot better than ever before. If the game will help you learn to defend the play that your opponent has run on nine straight snaps, then you could find yourself in a position to gain momentum on the gridiron.
Madden NFL 15 releases on August 26. The game is expected to have a major presence during EA’s E3 press conference on Monday, June 9th.
