Madden 19's Real Player Motion
This year's showcase had a big, overarching theme: Real Player Motion. This is a new physics initiative that leverages all of EA Sports' titles running on the Frostbite enginge, with everyone sharing their individual technological discoveries. In Madden 19, this has resulted in much more detail, in terms of things like collisions. Players will not only tackle the hell out of each other, but also push each other around, spin, and act in ways that make the players feel more like people than 3D objects following explicit rules. The controls are much more responsive as well, and while there will be adjustments to make, being able to make sharp turns, quick stops, and generally react to things better while running with the ball feels great.
