WATCH: Madden NFL 15 Going Heavy on New Defensive Features

Jun 09, 2014

Electronic Arts is taking on the difficult task of making playing defense in sports games fun. The company is introducing a variety of new features to improve defensive play in Madden NFL 15: A new defensive camera aims to give defense a more visceral feel, while a revamped tackling system will allow players to more precisely choose where they hit an opponent.

A gritty trailer for the game celebrates past defensive greats like Mean Joe Green, the former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle.

Madden NFL 15 will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on August 26.
