The next Madden game is only a few weeks away from release, and two new Madden NFL 17 videos have been released by EA Sports to help coach players on how to take advantage of the game’s new mechanics. One, the running game, will help teach you how to do running plays properly. The second video will help you stop aggressive catches.
Both Madden NFL 17 videos are only the latest bits of new content that the game will have, after EA Sports have announced a variety of returning mechanics and a number of brand new ones. These include the return of formation subs, the Madden Ultimate Team mode, new equipment, and other adjustments directed at things like the quarterback scramble, zone coverage, and more.
Both of the Madden NFL 17 videos are made by a YouTuber named Stiff, who runs the channel Madden Daily. In the videos, Stiff goes into detail on how to work with things, such as doing a “Hat count” to see which side of the offensive and defensive lines would be better to run the ball on. For instance, if there are four defenders on one side but only three offensive players to block them, you’d be better off going for the other side.
Stiff also goes into various skill moves and game mechanics that you can use to change the direction of a run in a play before the snap.
In the Aggressive catch video, Stiff walks you through the various coverage zones that you can use to determine whether you can block someone from catching the ball or not. While this can ruin their drive and keep them from passing into a touchdown, you could also be lucky enough to intercept the catch, putting yourself on the offense and ruining the other team’s drive.
