Watch Madden 25 designers describe grass

Slightly less dull than watching it grow

EA Sports has dropped a new video hyping the next-gen visuals Madden 25 will be sporting on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. Leveraging the power of the Ignite Engine, the team has developed what they refer to as an unprecedented amount of detail, from facial animations and realistic clothing to the thousands of bodies packing the seats of the stadium

I’m a detail-oriented kind of guy, so I can see why being able to render individual blades of grass in a football game would be a point of pride for someone. It is impressive, but does this translate to anything more than window dressing?
