While much of the football world is amped about the long-awaited return of EA Sports College Football, there's still the upcoming release of Madden NFL 25

EA revealed this week that this year's installment in the annual professional football franchise will launch worldwide on August 16.

Now that we have a release date, EA has shared some initial gameplay details, including some improved physics that should deliver the most realistic Madden game to date.

At the core of Madden NFL 25's gameplay is the newest iteration of FieldSENSE and the all-new BOOM Tech – "a dynamic physics-based tackling system that unlocks the reengineered Hit Stick and a new level of ball carrier control." 

Off the field, Madden 25 looks to deliver new levels of NFL authenticity and immersion with revamped visuals and presentation, including two additional commentary teams.

“It’s been incredibly rewarding to grow the Madden NFL experience alongside our players the past two years, and we’re excited to deliver even more of the control, depth and immersion they’re looking for in Madden NFL 25,” said Mike Mahar, Senior Production Director, Madden NFL. “BOOM Tech has been multiple years in the making and represents the most impactful FieldSENSE improvement yet, and combined with a new audio and visual experience across the game plus deepened modes and increased customization, Madden NFL 25 will look, feel and sound different.”

While Madden 25 will be releasing for all platforms (older generations included), these new features and visual improvements will only be offered with the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC versions. Here's what players on these platforms can expect through FieldSENSE and BOOM Tech:

  • Physics-Based Tackling: Cut loose and attack the ball with powerful Hit Sticks, Cut Sticks, trucks, dives, and stiff arms with more control and realism than ever. A new data-driven physics system considers timing, momentum, weight, speed, strength, and player ratings to inform 1-on-1 ball carrier impact for a wider variety of explosive and authentic physical outcomes. 

  • Reloaded Hit Stick: Bring power in every phase of the game. The re-engineered Hit Stick uses a timing-based mechanic to provide more control determined by your angle of impact, stick skill, and accuracy for cut sticks, big hits, and trucks, with more realistic physical movements and results. 

  • Ball Carrier Control: Run the rock with unparalleled confidence and command with the new Ball Carrier Balance and Recovery System. Feel the impact of every hit and experience the thrill of breaking tackles like never before with more realistic and dynamic ball carrier experience. Absorb big hits, regain your balance, and continue the drive, all based on the intensity of the collision and the ratings of the players involved.

  • Foundational Football: The latest additions to FieldSENSE™ deliver increased authenticity in all three phases of the game – offense, defense, and special teams – to celebrate and reward fans' love of the NFL. New team-specific plays from some of the NFL's most innovative play-callers bring enhanced strategy and gameplay variety, including the new NFL hybrid kickoff. Signature pre- and post-snap animations deliver a new level of immersion, and all-new skill-mechanics for ball carriers, receivers, and defenders provide players with ultimate control across the field.

In addition to improved gameplay physics, Madden NFL 25 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC will deliver improved presentation. The two new commentary teams include Mike Tirico and Greg Olsen, as well as Kate Scott and Brock Huard. Other improvements include fresh pregame montages, camera angles, environments, and Super Bowl celebrations.

Franchise Mode, often forgotten about, will have a new NFL Draft night experience that should deliver the same excitement as the real life version. Roger Goodell will now be featured in the draft, and players can look forward to a redesigned Franchise Central that "delivers dynamic storylines and strategic insights, and more ways to customize your team and season on the Team Builder website."

Superstar Mode has new archetypes, faces, hair, tattoos, and more to customize your avatar. Ultimate Team offers more customization options that simplify lineup adjustments as well as new challenge types, Solo Seasons, and fresh playbook content. Lastly, Online H2H returns with a new ranked structure.

Madden NFL 25 will be available on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC via EA app for Windows, Steam and Epic Games Store on August 16.  Pre-ordering the Madden NFL 25 Deluxe Edition provides 3-day early access, 4600 Madden Points, and more.
