In the past, the Madden franchise has been criticized for not updating itself frequently enough to keep up with its annual release schedule. Despite the fact that it is consistently one of the best sports games available, one of the many jokes made about sports games in general is that they usually end up feeling like more of the same rather than a completely new product. Similarly, Madden NFL 21 was one of the weaker modern entries in the franchise, as was the case with the previous game. The upcoming Madden NFL 22 video game from EA Sports hopes to buck that trend. In addition to major overhauls to fan-favorite modes, more realistic implementations to bring players closer to the game, and the inclusion of even more dynamic gameday experiences, the developer has high expectations for the introduction of a brand new Madden experience to fans. Through the years, the developers at EA Sports have attempted to capture the realism and feel of a real football game in the Madden video game franchise. In Madden NFL 22, the company hopes to get closer to its goal than it has ever been before, aided by a feature known as Dynamic Gameday. In almost every aspect of Madden NFL 22 , this new feature has a positive impact on the gameplay. Dynamic Gameday features, as the name implies, assist in dictating a wide range of events that take place during a single game. Each of the three core components of the feature — Gameday Atmosphere, Gameday Momentum, and Next Gen Stats Star-Driven AI — is designed to make things feel more realistic. Next Gen Stats, which were first introduced in the Madden NFL 21 Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions of the game, are a real-life tool that the NFL uses to help break down the game of football. Next Generation Stats, which are based on real-world data such as speed, separation, and angles on routes and passes, assist in providing information about every team and player throughout the league. These features are integrated much more intricately into Madden NFL 22 , with the data being used to influence the artificial intelligence behavior of the players in real time. The non-player-controlled football players will be affected by Star-Driven AI, which will provide you with additional information about how certain teams play in addition to giving you more information about how certain teams play. Smaller, faster linebackers will be able to close the gap more quickly than in the past, while bigger, bruising hitters will have to compensate for their lack of speed by landing some intimidating hits on their opponents. As a result of these efforts, EA Sports hopes to deliver a much more immersive and authentic single-player experience, with the ultimate objective of having each of the 32 NFL teams perform significantly better than they have in the past.
