Madden 23’s newfound realism piles on players irresistibly

Madden NFL 23, the latest in a long-running American football franchise, is getting back to basics. While we’ve focused on flashy updates in recent years, such as the new scouting system for Franchise mode and the introduction of home-field advantage in the form of team-wide buffs and debuffs, Madden 23 has mostly focused on the specifics. This is most evident in the Fieldsense system.

An ambitious agenda for change and improvement, Fieldsense appears to be the system and philosophy of equals, designed to take Madden a giant step forward in a true 11-on-11 football journey, with key components centered on passing, running and On defense. When I visited EA Orlando, I had the opportunity to experience these new mechanics firsthand.

A reticle controlled by the left stick allows you to select a target within the area, and the meter fills in, determining the speed and trajectory of the ball.
