Let's take a look at what next gen players can expect from Madden 23.

With so much being revealed, one thing we're really excited about is what the Madden 23 Xbox Series X version will look like. With all the new next gen graphics, the game should look fantastic.

One area that players should pay attention to is FieldSENSE, the next gen exclusive gameplay mechanic.

FieldSENSE on Xbox Series X|S

FieldSENSE was first revealed during the Gridiron Notes following the announcement of Madden 23. Unfortunately for current gen, this is only available on next gen systems.

The gameplay mechanic will give players total control over multiple facets. An area we're specifically interested in seeing is the FieldSENSE passing.

As we get closer to the official release date, we should see more of what FieldSENSE will look like on Madden 23 Xbox Series X|S.

This is what was revealed in the Gridiron Notes about FieldSENSE:

Here's what you can expect from using FieldSENSE in Madden 23:

  • Hit Everything: Redefining defensive pursuit, new Hit Everything mechanics let you be more disruptive on defense. New animation branching technology in Madden NFL 23 enables next-gen Hit-Stick physics so you can perform mid-air knockouts, hit the pile to assist in tackles already in progress, blow up blocks, and force turnovers with stand up tackles.
  • Skill-Based Passing: Lead your receivers open, drop back-shoulder throws into tight windows, and place every pass where only your receiver can catch it with surgical accuracy thanks to this all-new way to pass. Skill-based passing introduces a new accuracy reticle and passing meter.
  • 360° Cuts: Whether you're a running back, wide receiver after the catch, or returning a kick, new 360° Cuts give you the freedom and fluidity as the ball-carrier to hit the gaps you want to, plant-and-go, and elude defenders using Left Trigger/L2 and a well-timed flick of the stick.
  • WR vs DB Battles: A suite of new wide receiver release moves and defensive back counter press mechanics make for some fancy footwork and crucial 1-v-1 battles off the line.

Now that we've looked at that, let's take a look at the pre order rewards for Madden 23.
