Madden 13 Kicks Off A Pair of Videos

By Mark Delaney, 4 years ago
Is this finally the year? Is this the Madden that squashes all of the chatter about EA Sports rehashing the same thing every summer? It's still too early to tell, but the recently announced Infinity Engine is a great start. The new physics-based engine will allow each tackle to be as fluid and realistic as possible, relying on momentum, player size, speed, and impact rather than cycling through one of many pre-canned animations. It's a long time coming for fans, but how does it look?

These two videos -- the first being a dev interview, the second is a full gameplay sequence -- should give us more insight into just how good this new engine is. The gameplay should be of great interest to football fanatics like myself, as we get our first glimpse at the top two draft picks going head-to-head.

There's been a lot of other coverage for this week, so if you're ready for some football, be sure to check all of that out.
