XBOX LIVE AND PLAYSTATION NETWORK

Gamers Get Their First Taste of the Brand-New Infinity Engine

August 14, 2012 – Football season starts early as fans can now download the free Madden NFL 13 demo through Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation Network®. Revisit the dramatic 2012 NFC Championship game as the New York Giants take on the San Francisco 49ers, featuring brand new Nike uniforms, or opt for a bicoastal matchup with the Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington Redskins in their classic Nike throwback jerseys. The demo will provide fans with the opportunity to dive into some of the new features of Madden NFL 13, including Total Control Passing, Ball Hawk and the highly anticipated debut of the Infinity Engine. Fans can also get their first taste of new commentary team Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the 3-D broadcast booth.

Madden NFL 13 delivers physics you can feel on every play, and will connect you to the NFL and other fans like never before.  Powered by the all-new Infinity Engine, every impact on the field is more intense; every battle is more authentic; and no two plays will every look or feel the same.

This year the passing game has been completely revamped, with new features on both sides of the ball. Total Control Passing provides more options than ever, and allows quarterbacks to lead receivers away from coverage and into open spaces on the field. Conversely, opportunistic defenders can utilize the new Ball Hawk mechanic to aggressively attack passes in flight and attempt swats and interceptions. Ball Hawk rewards risk-takers with more spectacular defensive plays; but be careful, as missed attempts can lead to wide-open receivers and big plays for the offense.

Madden NFL 13 marks the biggest investment in gameplay in franchise history, including Kinect™ for Xbox 360® integration that puts fans at the line making all the calls.  Fans can take advantage of the Kinect for Xbox 360 to make pre-snap adjustments and audibles on offense and defense with their voice. Changing plays, calling hot routes and making player-specific adjustments can all be handled without a controller, streamlining the process and giving fans a whole new way to attack the opposition.

This year, sharing demo game results can be truly rewarding, as anyone who tweets their score in-game with the hashtag #Madden13Demo will be entered for a chance to win a free copy of the game. 13 free games will be given away every day for 13 days, and each day one lucky winner will take home a VIP kit filled with a copy of Madden NFL 13, a special edition 64GB iTouch, a pair of EA SPORTS headphones, and a Detroit Lions mini-helmet signed by Madden NFL 13 cover athlete Calvin Johnson, Jr.

Fans are also encouraged to use these final pre-launch weeks to create their digital twin for Madden NFL 13. This is the first time that players will be able to put themselves in the game with Game Face, allowing them to lead virtual versions of themselves to gridiron glory. Visit http://www.easports.com/gameface to create a future superstar for use in the retail edition Madden NFL 13.

From top to bottom, Madden NFL 13 is the most complete overhaul the series has seen in a generation. The power of the Infinity Engine fundamentally changes the action on the field, while Connected Careers rewrites the rules of what career and franchise modes should look like. Add in Total Control Passing and Ball Hawk and Madden NFL 13 is set to deliver the most authentic NFL experience ever. Get in early and see for yourself what everyone will be talking about when Madden NFL 13 launches on August 28th.
