The next Madden game from EA is set to be released this summer, with the latest installment featuring a whole new way to play the game.
According to EA, the new edition of Madden will include a new AI system, and that new AI will be able to help you win games by picking out plays and reacting to players.
“The AI will not only be able now to understand plays and react to the players, it will also be able learn from previous games, and play out a strategy based on what you saw,” EA wrote.
“This is a big step forward for the franchise and it makes for a game that is more exciting to play than ever.”
We’ve already seen that EA has been working on this new AI for the Madden title, and the company has released some images showing off the new AI in action.
The system, which will also help to control your roster, will be playable with a mouse and keyboard, and can be used on the fly in real-time.
As you’d expect, the AI will use a new skill tree and a new progression system, making it a bit different from past Madden games.
You’ll still need to be able pick up the football and take down the defenders, but it will be up to you to be a more aggressive player, as well as pick up other special moves like the “scoop” and “slam” and use them in the right situations.
While it may sound like EA is using this new system to help with the game’s overall gameplay, there’s also an important element of the game where AI will help, too.
“In Madden, the players have no voice,” EA explained.
“They’re not in the game anymore.
That’s the reason we’re taking AI into this game.
We’re not using the players anymore.”
The EA team explained that this will allow the AI to understand the game better, allowing the AI team to react more quickly and play a more proactive role.
The new AI, they say, will allow for better decisions, as players will have more insight into their own play.
“For us, this is about creating a game in which the players will be the ones who make the decisions,” EA said.
“We want to make sure we don’t make decisions based on the game AI, but based on real players.”EA also says that the new system will make it easier to win, thanks to the AI being able to pick up a game quickly.
“When we’re playing a game, we have a lot of things to think about, and we’re not able to just play a quick match,” EA writer Tom Derenberg wrote.
“The AI knows that we need to get to that next play and react fast, because otherwise it will make a bad decision, or worse.”EA has already said that the next Madden will be out in March 2019, but this is the first official word on when the next installment might arrive.
Hopefully it’s up to date soon, as we’ve already got our hands on the first gameplay footage from the game, which was revealed back in November.
