Madden 18 vs Madden 17: 11 Exciting New Madden 18 Features



Target Passing

Target Passing

Traditionally in Madden, you need to pick one of your receivers and throw to them based on an assigned button. If things don't go as planned, you may be in for trouble. There is not a lot you can do when a play falls apart or if you see an eligible receiver that is not part of that play. 

The new Target Passing will allow you to throw to the exact player you want to target, or to target a specific spot on the field. We expect that you will still be able to throw easily to targeted receivers, but advanced gamers will have more control. 

Expect to learn more about Target Passing at EA Play in June, when we will likely hear from real gamers to learn how they like this new feature.

    Looks like I’m first. Another yet of promises and another year of exploits.
    We already see the exploit and unrealistic passing they have already which to a degree lets you target the WR. I can see this making for some messy games because there is no INTELLIGENCE behind the feature. Just because you target someone doesn’t mean they will be READY for the pass. This game does NOT respect route running and timing.

    Day ONE… no matter the video or what gamers who tell us differently with their canned disclaimers… I will show the SAME ISSUES continue to exist in this game and features is nothing more than a marketing tool rather than a true feature.

    I’m posting videos from M17 now and will look for them to continue to exist in M18 and I will post them IMMEDIATELY this time around.

    The videos will consist of Gameplay (the most important: Fake AI, Fake Physics, Predetermined tackles, etc… ), Playbook (creation, editing, settings, flow), Practice Mode, Commentary… yes commentary is not just about updating a players last week stats and status for this week to play, Game UI while playing (lots and lots and lots of bugs).

    Having improved graphics and poor game play doesn’t make for much of an improvement.
