Gameplay

Madden NFL 17 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 delivers updates to all three phases of football: offense, defense and special teams. New mechanics and authentic AI bring wow moments to the ground game, while improved zone coverage balances out the passing game. Finally, special teams gives you the ability to impact the game in a single play.

Unleash all new moves

Ball carrier special moves are now spread across the different NFL player types giving you more creative control than ever. For players new to Madden, special prompts recommend moves expanding your ball carrier toolset.

Your path to daylight

New ball carrier path assist helps you anticipate where you are going further down field, improving field awareness and your ability to hit the hole.

Defense rooted in NFL strategy

Put your defenders in position to stop the run with all-new "gap play", our most authentic defensive AI to date.

Run/pass counters

Do you think you know what your opponent is going to do, but don’t know the defensive formation to stop it? Decide to defend the run or the pass, pick from a small number of recommended plays and let your defense do the rest.

The play isn't over until the whistle blows

Tackle battles add a new, fun in-game mechanic allowing you try and break free for extra yardage.

Game changing special teams

New elements of risk and reward through trick plays and blocked kicks can change the outcome of any game.
