It’s springtime and football fans know what that means: the NFL Draft, training camps, the start of the college season, then the NFL season! And as expected, this also signals the slow approach to the annual release of NCAA Football and Madden.
Today we bring you the first features of the upcoming NCAA Football 14. Building on last year’s success: “This year marks the greatest leap forward in a generation for the NCAA Football franchise. The inclusion of the Infinity Engine and several new gameplay features make this year’s game feel incredibly fresh and authentic, and the introduction of Ultimate Team will give fans the chance to take the field with some of the most well-known players of all time. (Randy Chase, Marketing Director for EA Sports)”
NCAA Football 14 will see the inclusion of Infinity Engine 2, which introduces real-time physics to the franchise. We saw Infinity Engine at work last year in Madden and it made for the best looking and best playing Madden game in years. Also new to this years’s college game is a renewed focus on the option game with 30 new option types such as the Spread Option, Zone Read and more. With this new system, key defenders are highlighted prior to the snap so players can read their movements and know when to handoff, pitch, or keep the ball.
Like last year, key features will be revealed in the form of Playbooks on the following dates:
• Presentation (to be released 4/18) – NCAA Football 14 gets you closer to the action than ever before and tells the story of every game. Feel the drama of college football from a whole-new perspective.
• NCAA Football Ultimate Team (to be released 5/15) – The much-beloved mode comes to the college game, allowing you to build up an unstoppable team.
• Dynasty (to be released 5/28) – There’s no single path to success in college football, so build up your program into a powerhouse to fit your strengths and style of play by utilizing the brand-new Coach Skills.
• Play a Season (to be released 6/17) – Focus purely on the on-field action and take your favorite team to a bowl game.
