October 1, 2013 – Today marks the launch of the first next-gen Madden NFL 25 Playbook, which is devoted to the visual and graphical details that make Madden NFL 25 shine on next-gen consoles. Utilizing the power of EA SPORTS IGNITE on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles will be able to provide 10 times the visual detail and up to four times the texture resolution than ever before. A video showcasing the upgraded visuals in Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles can be found here.
The increased horsepower of new consoles and the opportunities afforded by EA SPORTS IGNITE don’t just improve player models, but also extend into all elements of the game. Players will wear the signs of their on-field battle, with mud, paint and more smeared all over their jerseys and bodies thanks to new field and uniform degradation. Uncompressed animations on the field and on the sideline make every movement more powerful and 56% more pixels in every frame means unparalleled detail in everything from each uniform stitch to every blade of grass. Furthermore, enhanced lighting for every time of day makes every game look great no matter what time you’re playing.
In subsequent weeks fans will also learn more about important new features such as True Step, War in the Trenches, Living World and more. Throughout the month of October EA SPORTS will be detailing what makes Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles the biggest and best edition of the franchise to date.
