This new animation system is supposed to offer the most authentic digital football experience yet by greatly improving the quality of Madden's player animations.
"We've worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes", said Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Madden NFL 19 is now poised to launch on both PS4 and Xbox One on August 10, though pre-orders of the Hall of Fame Edition grant access three days earlier.More news: Aston Villa 0 - Fulham 1: Tom Cairney fires Cottagers into Premier League
While EA hasn't revealed the Madden NFL 19 cover athlete, it has assigned a former superstar to the "Hall of Fame" edition. National Football League fans will also have a top community-requested feature with the introduction of Custom Draft Class Creator where fans can create their own draft classes featuring players from the past and present for use in Franchise. Franchise Mode will receive a Custom Draft Class Creator, positional archetypes and schemes.
As for Franchise Mode, players will be able to select between offensive and defensive schemes to develop a strategy that fits their playstyle best as they compete in both single-player and multiplayer seasons. This will somehow tie into an "intuitive progression system" that's "based on authentic positional archetypes" and allows you to choose between building a victor now or focusing on the future.More news: Utah man freed from Venezuela jail after secret talks with GOP senator
A report released this week found that last year's version of the Madden series has been the fourth-highest-selling video game during the last 12 months.
There'll also be improvements to other areas of the package, including Ultimate Team, which will now include leaderboard-driven daily challenges known as Solo Battles, while MUT Squads will also be overhauled. The Hall of Fame Edition gets you three-day early access to the game, and a bunch of Ultimate Team goodies (one Training Pack, five Elite Hall of Fame Legends, and seven Gold Team Fantasy Packs). EA announced the game and shared the first details on what to expect from it and when it's set to release on PS4 and Xbox One. It's notable that there is no mention of a story mode returning to Madden after it made its debut previous year.More news: Champions League final: Liverpool and Real Madrid face off in Kyiv
