EA SPORTS today announced the full EA Trax soundtrack for Madden NFL 16, showcasing new music from a multi-genre roster of superstar acts and up-and-coming bands.

As the launch of Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles nears, today EA SPORTS released details on how the game will bring the excitement and emotion of Sunday into the game.
Madden NFL 25 breathes new life into stadiums, as players, crowds and announcers react intelligently and dynamically to the in-game action. Players demonstrate more awareness and emotion than ever before. For instance, when a ball-carrier runs out of bounds after a big play, his teammates standing on the sidelines will encourage him, while in a similar situation, players on the opposing sideline will scatter. Fans also react to big moments in the game. For example, the crowd will stand in anticipation during a long pass downfield or erupt after a game-changing touchdown. Commentary adds additional layers of realism as Jim Nantz and Phil Simms reference past performances, demonstrating awareness of what’s happening in your Madden NFL universe.
The Madden NFL 25 next-generation gameplay conversation begins today with the debut of the all-new “Feel It” trailer. EA SPORTS will be rolling out full gameplay details on Madden NFL 25 website andFacebook page that highlight how the game reaches new heights on next-gen consoles.
New features introduced in Madden NFL 25 include Player Sense, which enables players to scan the field, anticipate situations before they happen and maneuver based on instinct for the first time ever. Players make up to 50 times the contextual decisions they ever have before, bringing a new level of intelligence to every player on the field. In addition, the implementation of True Step player motion provides unprecedented ball-carrier control, as well as the most organic, user-driven outcomes in franchise history.
Furthermore, the War in the Trenches fundamentally changes the dynamic of the offensive and defensive line. Linemen are able to make four times as many decisions per second, and 300 new blocking animations will lead to never-before-seen situations and outcomes. Offensive linemen intelligently identify the “Mike” linebacker, and shift and sort assignments at the snap in order to target the biggest defensive threats. While the offensive line brings a new arsenal of double-team blocks and blitz pick-ups the defense has gotten smarter too, utilizing bluffs, stunts and angles to find the weak point in the line, split double-team blocks or confuse the protection long enough to get into the backfield. Every down is a new battle to control the line of scrimmage.
