You’ve read all the articles on how “Madden 15” will feature more realistic defense that somehow, someway, is fun to play.

But with several new gameplay additions on the defensive side of the ball, “Madden 15” could turn out to be the most balanced game EA has released in years. For that reason, as well as a brand new presentation system, the development team at Electronic Arts says that this is the year to come back to the series.

Last week, EA Sports spilled the beans on the updated Skills trainer mode as well, which like the additions in the game’s presentation, is completely rebuilt from the ground up and features more content than ever. Last year’s “Madden 25” was also the first time the team worked with their new IGNITE engine. Could another year of working with the unique physics engine improve what was already polished in “Madden 25”?

EA Sports says all signs point to yes.

“Madden NFL 15 is a very different game from Madden NFL 25. We hear it from just about everyone who plays the game,” EA’s Rex Dickson told Examiner in an exclusive interview. “It is more fun to play defense, the game is more balanced overall, our presentation has been completely overhauled and graphically the game looks amazing. Feedback from our community has been overwhelmingly positive throughout the year and this has been echoed in multiple consumer play test reports.

“If you have been away for a while, I invite you to come back this August and see just how far the game has come.”

“Madden 15” is set for an August 26 release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One home gaming consoles.
