Announced Features and Improvements (PS3/360):
Gameplay (Infinity Engine 2, Run Free)
- Players can now create specialized moves like stutter steps, precision jukes, combo moves, hurdles and more to reinvent the way they play Madden.
- 30 ball-carrier moves open up gameplay possibilities. Use authentic hard cuts at 45, 90, 135 and 180 degrees to eliminate “swerve” running of the past.
- The precision modifier offers a risk/reward opportunity, as utilizing it will consume stamina, and abuse could lead to tired players who make mistakes.
- The Infinity Engine 2 brings more polished physics simulation with specific focus put on realistic tackle momentum, tackle wraps and post-play behaviors.
- The new force impact system introduces another level of player control and power moves including the Hit Stick, Truck, dive tackle and stiff arms – all redesigned to harness the full potential of Infinity Engine 2.
- The new stumble recovery mechanic allows players to regain their balance and renew their charge – maximizing the yardage they can gain before going down.
- Timing is the key to success, and precision is rewarded. Mistime a move and pay the price.
- Blocking matchups have been rewritten by a former NFL offensive lineman to ensure the correct blocks are being made; also, new animations have been added for offensive linemen to ensure they’re getting to the right place at the right time.
- ALL new visual stamina meter
- Weight and Size matter in collisions
- Defense gets into the action too in Madden NFL 25
- Play against defenses with all-new tackle pursuit angles and more authentic tackle “breakdown” behavior. Defenders who get out of position can make a hard cut to recover and quickly get back into the action. Defenders can also attempt a lunge tackle when they’re about to be blocked and will attack based on the direction and speed of the ball carrier.
- When lining up against a stacked offense, utilize heat-seeker tackling control and more accurate dive tackling to make the play.
- Smart defenders can time their hits to when an ball carrier is attempted a precision-modified move, and successful tackles lead to an increased chance of a fumble
Connected Franchise (Owners Mode, CFM)

- Connected Franchise sports a brand new user interface that makes navigation a breeze.
