The gang at EA Tiburon is aiming to bring gamers the most accurate football simulation ever made, and chief among their improvements to gameplay in Madden NFL 10 is the game’s all-new Pro-Tak animation system. It looks to be a truly game-changing innovation, and if you want to hear a few of the game’s development bigwigs -- including Lead Designer Ian Cummings and Senior Producer Phil Frazier -- talk about it, then hit the jump for the first Madden 10 “Developer Series” video.
To go along with the video, we’ve also got five new screenshots of the game, two of which show off the new nine-man gang tackling (no, kids, that’s not a group hug you see up there). Another one features an on-field referee, a first for this console generation, and then there’s one illustrating the stripped-down playcalling screen in this year’s game. The fifth one features Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, just like the first image we ever saw of Madden 10.
