‘Madden NFL 15,’ coming Aug. 26 for Xbox One, is making defense fun again

“Madden NFL 15” features an all-new way to play defense, taking a page from the “NCAA Football 14” playbook. “Now the camera swings around behind your defense, giving you the same control and vision you that you get when you’re on offense,” writes Xbox Wire. “A tackling reticule and vision cone give defensive players more information and control, to help them go for those big hits.”

Football is also getting a graphical overhaul with new presentation cameras, resulting in some amazing visuals on the Xbox One. Electronic Arts showed off Levi’s Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers. The lighting, the textures and the grass “were so realistic that it’s getting increasingly harder to tell it’s not actually real.”

The game is due out Aug. 26. To learn more, head over to Xbox Wire.
