Madden is the only true NFL style of game that fans have access to each year, and while they don't change much in each iteration, there's always some new content for fans to sink their teeth into.
With the NFL season slowly apporaching, EA is gearing up to reveal Madden 23 fully and we're going to run over all you need to know!
Madden 23: Release Date
Madden releases every year right before the start of the NFL pre-season and this year is no different.
As announced via the official page for Madden, this year's version will release on August 19, 2022.
Madden 23 New Editions
One of the biggest lures to this years title is the addition of Madden is the new FieldSENSE, and EA have posted a deep dive into this new feature which we'll run over below.
Providing the foundation for consistent, ultra-realistic gameplay, Madden NFL 23’s new FieldSENSE Gameplay System†† equips players with more control at all positions in every mode. FieldSENSE leverages animation branching technology and a suite of new user control mechanics for a seamless gameplay flow with authentic results on every play.
Redefining defensive pursuit, new mechanics let you be more disruptive on defense. New animation branching technology in Madden NFL 23 enables next-gen Hit-Stick physics so you can perform mid-air knockouts, hit the pile to assist in tackles already in progress, blow up blocks, and force turnovers with stand up tackles.
Skill Based Passing
Lead your receivers open, drop back-shoulder throws into tight windows, and place every pass where only your receiver can catch it with surgical accuracy thanks to this all-new way to pass. Skill-Based Passing introduces a new accuracy reticle and passing meter.
Whether you're a running back, wide receiver after the catch, or returning a kick, new 360° Cuts give you the freedom and fluidity as the ball-carrier to hit the gaps as you see them, plant-and-go, and elude defenders to break more big plays.
WR vs DB Battles
A suite of new wide receiver release moves and defensive back counter press mechanics make for some fancy footwork and crucial 1-v-1 battles off the line.
Madden 23: Player Ratings
The largest lure each year is what your favorite player is going to be rated, and this is a controversial topic within the Madden community, and we'll be sure to update this page when we hear more about the ratings.
Madden: Cover Athletes
The late John Madden will dawn the cover of this year's Madden, as the iconic coach and broadcaster passed away last year and EA will be honoring him with this year's game.
