Madden NFL 25
Publisher: EA Sports
Street date: August 27, 2013
Description: For this year’s Madden release, EA Sports ditched their typical yearly number increments and hung a 25 on Madden in a nod to the title’s 25-year anniversary. Madden 25 breaks the huddle this year with the Infinity Engine 2 feature, which promises an improved physics simulation, as well as the all-new Force Impact System, that allows for new power moves on both sides of the ball.
Connected Franchise also got some love from EA, as they decided to bring back the beloved Owner Mode (from the PS2 days), allowing players to function as a player, coach or owner. EA will also offer Madden fans the Special Anniversary Edition of M25—which comes equipped with discounts on DirecTV and a unique access code to NFL Sunday Ticket for the 2013 regular season—all for a price of $99.99.
