EA SPORTS recently released the first batch of official screenshots for Madden NFL 15 and we wanted to directly compare a handful of them to Madden NFL 25. Player models, player faces, skin tone and lighting will immediately jump out as the biggest adjustments between titles. However, we will point out some other differences that might not be as noticeable.
Each image on the left is from Madden NFL 25 and was captured with the share button on PlayStation 4. Each image on the right is from Madden NFL 15 and was captured by EA SPORTS. Click on each image to see it in its full resolution.

While the player models, player faces, skin tone and lighting are improved in Madden NFL 15, it is nice to see the team at EA SPORTS focus on the small details which add up and show exactly how much difference a year can make in development.
