The start of the 2022 National Football League (NFL) season is right around the corner and today Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) released EA SPORTS™ Madden NFL 23 for Sony PlayStation®5, Microsoft Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC via the EA app for Windows, Origin™, Steam® and Epic Games Store worldwide. With namesake Coach John Madden celebrated across all covers and powered by the gamewide impact of the FieldSENSE™ Gameplay System on PS5™ system and Xbox Series X|S versions, Madden NFL 23 delivers the most authentic 11v11 football simulation experience yet.
Fans across the world have experienced FieldSENSE and the new foundation for consistent, ultra-realistic gameplay that it sets through early access and now everyone is welcome to showcase their skills on the sticks through the new level of control it brings. FieldSENSE delivers deeper realism on the field through animation branching technology that enables Hit Everything to redefine interactions on defense, while new mechanics such as 360 Cuts allow players to change direction on a dime with ball-carriers, and Skill Based Passing offers players complete control to place the ball exactly where they want. Plus, improvements to core gameplay systems bring a new level of balance with upgrades to defensive coverages, the pass rush, and containing mobile quarterbacks.
“Coach Madden’s enduring love for football has forever shaped the sport, and all of us are deeply proud to continue welcoming millions to experience that passion through Madden NFL,” said Cam Weber, EVP and Group GM of EA SPORTS. “We’re eager to introduce a new generation of fans to the groundbreaking levels of authenticity and realistic gameplay in Madden NFL 23, all inspired by Coach Madden.”
