Madden Season is in effect as Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) officially launched Madden NFL 15 on Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Madden NFL 15 allows fans to own their rival with a new arsenal of defensive pass rush moves and tackling mechanics, as well as a new and improved playcalling system. The game also showcases the most impressive visuals in franchise history, and a comprehensive Skills Trainer that teaches not only game skills, but football strategy as well.

Madden NFL 15 delivers on defense, providing a variety of new pass rush moves to help players disrupt the backfield, as well as new tackling mechanics that make it easier than ever to wrap up your opponent or make the big hit in the hopes of making him cough up the football. Furthermore, the revamped playcalling system presents suggested plays in a whole new way, providing context for each recommended play as well as a snapshot of its historical success. You can also utilize the wisdom of the Madden Community, with constantly updated community-suggested plays that are pulled from actual Madden NFL 15 matchups from around the world.

The improvements extend beyond gameplay, with new gameday presentation that tells the story of your matchup, including new pregame and halftime shows with highlights, commentary and analysis. Fans can also utilize the enhanced Skills Trainer mode to not only improve their mastery of Madden NFL 15, but also learn basic football concepts. Once you feel confident head over into the brand-new Gauntlet to put your skills to the ultimate test.

Madden NFL 15 has taken a huge leap forward in so many areas, including the visuals, new presentation and defensive gameplay”, said Cam Weber, VP and Group GM at EA SPORTS in a press release.  “But what I’m most pleased with is how the whole package hangs together as a cohesive, high quality experience.   I think people are going to love it.”
