Madden 15 will feature player tattoos, releases E3 trailer


9:00 PM on 06.06.2014



Amongst all the E3 hubbub about games like, Mortal Kombat X, Destiny, and Halo 5, let's not forget that August will bring us our annual Madden. Teasing what will be brought to the show, the Madden 15 E3 trailer implies, to me, that this year's game will have a particular focus on defense.

Featuring the lauded Caroline Panthers' middle linebacker Luke Kuechly, the video plays a radio casting of the Panther's January playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, while Kuechly swears to not fail next season. The actual gameplay clip in the trailer shows the Panthers going up against the Seattle Seahawks, who were statistically the best defensive team in the 2013 season. A lot of defense going on.

In other news, Madden 15 will feature athletes' tattoos which were oddly missing in previous games in recent years. According to Polygon, EA is really trying to cover its legal bases, requiring NFL players to have their tattoo artists sign waivers before featuring their designs in-game. This apparently was in response to legal cases where EA was being periodically sued by tattoo artists whose work would show up in games uncredited.

Why tattoos are just now returning to Madden with Madden NFL 15 [Polygon]

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why

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
