Madden 15 is seeking to put more focus on defense in the latest iteration of the ridiculously popular football game, with updates that should make the entire experience a little more fun overall.

Players will be able to choose a direction to push their opponent when locked into a block, and additional block mechanics will be implemented. The way team members make tackles have been redesigned, with a tackle cone that allows you to zero-in on your opponent. Aggressive tackles let you take more serious risks, and with bigger hits you can dive further away. What all of this means is you have more fun on defense, and who hasn't wished that a time or two?

An Emmy award-winning cinematographer will be handling camera angles so that you can relish those updated defense mechanics in style, and you can look for Madden 15 to hit store shelves on August 26. That isn't very long to wait until you can get your football on. Or, American football. Sports.

I wanted to fit a "Red Warrior is about to die" joke in this trailer for Madden's new Gauntlet mode. I got as far as "Redskins is about to die" before I started watching this video and was greeted with an over eager, discordant voice over. Bosssssss levelsssssssssssss. Who thought this was a good idea?more
