Unlike previous seasons where offensive stars got all the hype, this year’s edition of “Madden NFL” is all about defense. Inspired by the no-nonsense Seattle Seahawks defense and their All-Pro Defensive Back Richard Sherman, "Madden 15," according to EA Sports is the most balanced football the company has ever produced.
Between new camera angles on defense and the new “Off the Line” gameplay mechanic, a speed burst available to defensive players to spice up the pass-rush game, the development team at EA has tried to capture Seattle’s “sexy” defense and give them and defenses with just as much talent, the same abilities they have on the field.
Add in 48 new drills for the game’s ever-expanding Skills Trainer, as well as a brand new NFL on TV presentation-feel powered by NFL Films and “Madden 15” is chock full of content.
“We built a bunch of new mechanics, including new defensive line moves, a jump the snap mechanic, new ways to tackle, and two cameras devoted specifically to the defense,” Danny Doeberling, Assistant Producer for "Madden NFL 15,” in an exclusive interview with Examiner in July. “We hope with all the new improvements, players can master them and become a defensive force like last year’s Seahawks.”
