EA Sports just dropped a new trailer for Madden NFL 25 that highlights the defensive mechanics in the game. The footage is dominated by commentary from San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman, but you’ll want to read the subtitles to learn more about the new gameplay dynamics
Madden 25 includes a revamped Hit Stick ability, which makes your target more likely to fumble if they’re using a precision modifier when you smash into them. There’s also a new Heat Seeker Tackling function for those who prefer a button-based approach, as well as a new dive tackle that helps you catch runners and trip them up from behind.
Madden NFL 25 hits stores on August 27th and it is definitely on our preview agenda for E3 2013 next month.
