In case you missed it the guys over at EA Sports have dropped the first Madden NFL 12 teaser and we picked a quite a bit from the short snippet. In the first section we see what appears to be a pre-game chat feature of some kind as you can obvious see a conversation going on but we can’t tell what game mode though it appears to be in online leagues. We see what appears to be a Walter Payton Ultimate Team Card. We can clearly see most of Payton’s stats which are quite impressive, 96 SPD, 95 AGI, 97 ACC, 99 AWR, 99 CARY, 93 TRCK, 90 ELUS, 99 BCV. For the most part I’m cool with Payton’s stats though I think his TRCK is a bit high and his ELUS is a little low but oh well. If Payton is going to be in ultimate team then we can only assume that other NFL legends will make the game as well which could take Ultimate Team to a whole other level.
We also see brand new pre-game introduction animations and entrances which might include vehicles as we see the Tennessee Titans being lead in by the chariot. For all you folks that are serious about building the ultimate playbook we see a custom playbook feature for you. We also see what appears to be a revamped player management screen that appears to pop a profile box for each player when you scroll over their name that shows basic player info. We of course see the surprise on-side kicks but that was one that we know about before. There is another screen that appears to display info about player tendencies but there is not enough of the screen to get any good context on it.
Well that’s all we can pull out folks, you check it out for yourself and see if there is anything that you noticed that we missed.
