Madden NFL 15 Connected Franchise Returns With Changes to Player Progression and Game Preparation

By   /   Aug 7, 2014

With less than a month until the release of Madden NFL 15, Electronic Arts Tiburon thought it was a good idea to dive deep into the game’s Connected Franchise mode which not only allows you to manage your whole NFL experience, but also brings in changes to pre-game preparations and player progression.

One of the biggest changes to be featured in Madden NFL 15 is the inclusion of Game Prep. and Confidence which replace good ole Practice Mode and Hot/Cold Streak.

Let’s talk about the Game Prep. addition first! Simply put, Game Prep. allows you to prepare your player for the upcoming week’s game and keep young players at the same time. Every week, each player will receive a fixed amount of Prep.

Time which can be used to complete a number of activities that affect players’ two stats: additional XP or Confidence.

Coming to Confidence, this is a variable stat. which ranges from 1 to 99 and determines how each player feels of their designated role.

Confidence is affected by a number of factors like a player’s performance in past matches, importance of the game, and whether he is a backup or a starter. Furthermore, depending upon the level of Confidence, each player’s attributes are either increased or decreased.

Another major change that has made its way to the game is attributed to Free Agency which now allows players to consider a number of elements in their final decisions.

These are some of the major changes made to the Connected Franchise mode. Other minor changes include draft classes, Owner Mode alterations, and simulation.

Madden NFL 15 launches on Aug. 26, 2014 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
