Next Definition Visuals
As is expected with any console generation transition, Madden NFL 25 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will boast improved graphics and animations. The art team is touting a 10-times-the-detail improvement, with particular focus in cloth physics, player details, and the crowds:
[quote_box_center]ON CLOTH PHYSICS IN MADDEN NFL 25
We’re using cloth much differently in Madden NFL 25 than on other teams. Players in NBA LIVE and FIFA have loose uniforms but in the NFL, players intentionally have their jerseys fitted to make it difficult to grab and hold them. We’ll still use EA SPORTS IGNITE for that level of detail, but in a different way.
ON PLAYER DETAIL
Because the uniforms are different in Madden NFL 25 than other games, our EA SPORTS IGNITE technology is more focused on things like hair and player towels. In the first look at the engine, you saw Robert Griffin III’s hair and towel flowing as he took two steps back in the pocket, as well as Marshawn Lynch’s dreadlocks.
ON THE CROWDS
In the past, we could only render 16 crowd characters on cards. Now they’ll be 3D, and we’re going to create crowds that have indiscernible patterns to where it feels like there are tens of thousands of people in the stands.[/quote_box_center]
