EA have given us an in-depth look at Madden 21's The Yard!
Will it succeed in giving us the backyard feel we've been looking for?
Madden 21 can at times be a big commitment for players, but for The Yard, players can pop right into fast action with all new gameplay features that shake things up.
BIG PLAYS: New gameplay mechanics encourage some big plays in The Yard
This includes a passing timer that will whistle a dead ball after 4 seconds if the QB has not thrown.
It will also include pass rush timers that will hold back the defense for only a second or so (depending on position) before the pressure comes.
Innovative New Mechanics
The Yard will bring some brand new mechanics to Madden 21 gameplay that we can't wait to see.
This includes a new one-timer catching mechanic that will allow receivers to tap passes on to others instead of going for the catch.
ALL HIGHLIGHTS: One-Timer Catching is sure to give us some amazing moments
This is sure to generate some amazing gameplay highlight clips!
It will also feature new ways to score bonus points, and an all-new Multi-Snap mechanic that will let you snap the ball to any player on the field!
LATERAL AWAY: Laterals will be a huge part of The Yard
This will all create for a wonderfully chaotic new gameplay experience in the Madden series.
