EA SPORTS has just announced the fourth, fifth and sixth feature playbooks for Madden NFL 13, “Infinity Engine” and “Connected Careers (Parts 1 & 2). Madden NFL 13 delivers physics you can feel on every play, and will connect you to the NFL and other fans like never before. Powered by the all-new Infinity Engine, every impact on the field is more intense; every battle is more authentic; and no two plays will every look or feel the same. Plus, Madden NFL 13 revolutionizes the way sports video game career modes are played with Connected Careers—a completely new and fully connected universe defined by deep gameplay, unique storylines and social integration. With cutting-edge Infinity Engine technology, revolutionary Connected Careers and a complete audio and visual overhaul that delivers best-in-class presentation, Madden NFL 13 is undoubtedly the greatest entry in the franchise’s celebrated history.
This new gameplay engine delivers physics you can feel, creating an intense, realistic experience that guarantees no two plays will ever look the same. Predetermined outcomes are history, as players’ mass, momentum, speed, balance and other factors will influence every play, completely revolutionizing the Madden NFL franchise. Players trip and stumble as they fight through tackles and scrap for every yard, and the variety of unpredictable interactions means that the play isn’t over until your knee is on the ground. The Infinity Engine is truly the next great leap helping Madden NFL 13 blur the line between virtual and reality.
Connected Careers gives users a chance to build their legacy as a player or coach (or both), in an attempt to achieve unique goals and ultimately land in the Hall of Fame in the first true sports RPG. The brand new Legacy Score allows users to quickly and easily compare their talents to not only others in the league, but to legends of the game as well. Running backs can see how they stack up against Walter Payton and Barry Sanders, while coaches can measure themselves against Vince Lombardi or even the game’s namesake, John Madden.
Connected Careers manages to capture and deliver the capricious spirit of the NFL in wholly unique ways. Dynamic scouting storylines mean that in every draft class certain players’ stock will rise or fall based on special circumstances. In addition, each of these unique draft stories will be recounted to players by none other than Trey Wingo. In Connected Careers, retired players and coaches might suddenly return to the league, or aging stars may abruptly opt to hang up their cleats. All the while league news is being broken in a virtual Twitter feed starring 13 NFL analysts like Mark Schlereth, Adam Schefter, and Skip Bayless.
Most of all this is a truly connected experience, allowing up to 32 players to experience a living, constantly changing NFL experience together. Unlimited replay value and a dynamic league filled with virtual versions of real-world pundits makes Connected Careers a game mode unlike any other.
