15 New Madden 16 Features



Realistic Routes and Catches

While players are running a route there is now realistic hand fighting in the lead up to the pas and then there is now an option for the player to go for an aggressive catch by holding Y. This combines to deliver a more realistic game experience. Part of the drawback to the aggressive catch is that when a player goes for this when they are wide open, they may catch the ball but fall to the ground or come back to catch and lose yards.

Count on more realistic routes and hand fighting between players.

Upgraded Tackles

Organic gang tackles arrive in Madden 16.

Organic gang tackles arrive in Madden 16.

In Madden 16 we also get upgraded tackles including a gang-tackle that includes three players teaming up on the ball carrier to shut down an attempt at adding yards after the catch.

The number of players who will join a gang tackle is organic and will shift depending on proximity of other players and the momentum of the ball carrier. EA did not confirm that you can pull 11 players down the field with you, but we should see some big gang tackles in Madden 16.

The conservative tackle sports a tuned tackle cone and match distance to avoid suction and warping that pulled defenders to the ball carrier. Aggressive tackles now dive towards the player, instead of where he is facing.

New Madden 16 Catches

EA Sports highlighted the new passing and catching at E3 2015, but now that we can watch Madden 16 gameplay videos we can see how this works on the screen with feedback about the type of pass thrown and AI hints at the type of catch to attempt.

With a RAC – Run After Catch – catch attempt the player has a better chance of adding yards to the play. When you go for an aggressive catch near the sideline you also run the risk of not landing inbounds like you might with a different style catch.

    Why are there no Armsleeves again? This is so simple to put in the game. Mouth pieces should be in as well. Madden fail again. So annoying

      This is the most trivial complaint ever. Arm sleeves and mouthpieces…

    Why are people worried about numbes …. the problem is that the defense angles are bad at the point of tackle. They square off and runner run past them and slows the other players down

    Need to fix the easy dropped ints. Mouth pieces not going to make game better. Helping defense tackle better. Keep the angle and make tackle with the A I

    No one cares about 3 stars. If you dont know a team just look at the roster in the pause menu. Where is the focus on gameplay? There is nothing better than a ranked match, but when you get beat 10 games in a row because multiple users run 2 plays on offense and 1 on defense that are untoppable it kills me. Ok, I get it… maybe i can switch my play call up. Now what? Clay Mathews gets run over by none other than Big Jay Cutler. Big Jay just earned himself player of the game after capping off a 2 play drive with a 60 yard TD run. Yes im exaggerating about this particular scenario, but it’s just as well. My point is, you cant stop “money plays” but if you do happen to stop what is unreal to begin with a low profile player will break 5 tackles and waltz into the endzone. As far as game modes go, just bring back team play. Whoever made the call to take it out obviously doesnt play his produt. Im certain a big majority of the madden community would agree with me on team play. Just bring it back.
