In August, “Madden” is coming back to consoles, and this year’s version might have some changes that long-time players have been asking for. The brand-new “FieldSENSE” technology that is being added to this year’s game could make a big difference in how it is played: With new animation branches, the game should look less robotic and more modern than it has in the past.
FieldSENSE also lets you play more like you would in real life. On defence, you’ll have more control over tackling instead of missing every time you hit the hit-stick, and on offence, you’ll have more control over where and how a runner will run the ball. A new skill-based throwing system is also coming to this year’s game. It includes an accuracy reticle and a throwing metre to give players more control over where and how they throw the ball on offence.

Madden 23 new features
The foundation is the part of “Madden 23” that will change the most. This year, EA Sports is adding “FieldSENSE” to the game, which focuses on changing the animations and giving the game a new, more realistic feel.
“FieldSENSE uses animation branching technology and a suite of new user control mechanics to create a seamless gameplay flow with authentic results on every play,” says the Madden website. This seems to mean that there will be fewer animations that people are used to and more natural, free-flowing parts of the game. Only the next-gen versions of the game will have FieldSENSE.
Since gamers have been complaining about Franchise mode for a few years, EA has made it a top priority. This year, they’re making more changes, like putting more focus on free agency and “player motivations” and adding a new hub for free agency.
Madden 23 cover
After John Madden dies in December 2021, the cover of this year’s Madden pays tribute to him. The Hall of Fame coach and TV host is on the cover of both versions of the game for both generations of consoles. The cover of the All-Madden edition refers to the first Madden game, John Madden Football, which came out in 1988.
On what consoles can you play Madden 23?

Unlike in previous years, only the All-Madden edition can have Dual Entitlement. This means that if you buy the PS4 version of the game, you won’t be able to switch to the PS5 version. You’ll have to wait and buy the game for PS5 instead.
