EA sports love to perform a new console launch and there is no doubt to the fact that the Xbox Series X and PS5 will be hitting the shelves along with the Madden 21 right by their side. About this upcoming game, EA has been pretty tight-lipped about it but the newest addition to the Madden NFL series has some of the coolest features. The trailer of this particular game has provided some of the details and the Madden fans will definitely love them.
Introducing: Lamar Jackson!
The Madden 21 will feature Lamar Jackson, he was crowned as the breakout star for the last season and also was given the title of MVP. The game will feature him as the covered athlete because he became the early frontrunner for the game’s cover. It was also confirmed by Ravens QB that Lamar Jackson will be on the front position in this new game. This is considered to be a big reveal, which EA has lined up for all the Madden fans who were pretty impressed once they heard the news.
Features to watch out for this new game
Several new features could be seen in the Madden 21 video trailer. Given below are the features that make this whole new gameplay different from the other Madden games.
The game is all about skill stick:
In this Madden 21 game, the focus will be on the right-stick trickery and EA has guaranteed that you will be able to link clever combos, which will help in providing outstanding gameplay moments. Slide hurdles is one of the new moves that is added in this game and it can be motioned into jukes or spins. Many people who have watched the video trailer of this game, believe that Madden 21 should be all about Darren Sproles or Christian McCaffrey. But this is hard to predict through an online platform and prevent Madden from becoming an arcade game. If the traditional control schemes are included then the change will be considered a good one.
Defense receives an additional focus:
The defensive side of the ball is considered to be pretty important if EA wants to avoid trick-stick abuse. The tackling animation requires revamping but now in this particular game, you will receive three types of tackle. The three different tackles are improved dive tackling, breakdown and location-based. Even though all of them are considered to be a welcome addition but the “location-based” is the most transformative tackling in theory. This means your defender will definitely understand where the pylon, first-down marker, and the end zone is when it goes in for a tackle and get to adjust its body position.
50 X-factors are inbound:
Yes, you heard it right, Madden 21 has a total of 50 x-factors. Even though Madden 20 has already extended their frontier of authenticity but this new game will enable you to feel more like the real-life counterparts. You will get the chance to explore not just the x-factor abilities but also the superstar abilities. These abilities are freshly designed to help in elevating the new stars in the Madden 21 gameplay. If there is much more news on them, you will be updated by the gameplay’s official website.
Realistic weather detailing:
Mother Nature will be playing an important part in this new Madden game. You will get to see standing water on rain-drenched sidelines, along with the cold winter snow that accumulated within the field. Along with that, you also get to experience the visually improved weather conditions, as it will affect the clothing definition on the athletes and will match perfectly with the environmental variables.
