I can hear the crowd beginning to chant “defense, defense!” Madden NFL 25 has just released a new trailer touching up on the defensive line and how crucial their changes were to the game.
Last year was all about offense with the introduction of the Infinity Engine. This year, defense has a their own “read and react” called heat seeker tackling. It will allow your defense to find a better route, granting you a greater opportunity to make the tackle at the right time. Size does matter!
How, it’s the difference in your timing that a big guy may fall or bulldoze over you. To intensify the collision between running backs and your lineman, new dives and lunge tackles have been added. Once you manage to make contact with the running back, you can create a force impact with the hit stick, making a every tackle have a huge impression.
To me Madden is already demonstrating from another standpoint authenticity. Detailed improvements are still to come, leading up to the release, but EA Sports has started on the right foot, and tackled on the left!
