Madden NFL 11 news
EA Sports has dropped its first entry in what looks to be a great series of producer blogs. Madden NFL 11 will be released later this year and with the success of the campaign and actual title of Madden NFL 10, the next one has a lot to live up to. The first blog entry focused on catching and while admitting that this is difficult as a developer, they are finding ways to fix these catch issues. One thing to aid the team in this, was the “debugging” tool for catching. This allowed them to figure why certain catches were triggered and which ones happen more than others. Facial recognition technology has been improved as well, as seen with this screenshot of San Diego Chargers QB, Philip Rivers.
One of the catch problems that happened frequently in Madden NFL 10, was a receiver making the catch and running back towards the QB, costing you the first down. In Madden NFL 11, the receiver will make the catch standing up and use his feet to gain momentum to back into the defender. Receivers will also have increased AI that will allow them to get their feet in more often on out of bounds catches. What are some changes you would like to see in Madden NFL 11?
