'Madden 13' showcases Nike uniforms

Madden NFL 13EA Sports"Madden 13" shows off the new Nike NFL uniforms.

When it comes to the secrecy surrounding what the new Nike uniforms will look like in "Madden NFL 13," the game's art director, Jean Adams, says the design team's studio was on CIA-type lockdown.

"We moved all of the people working on the Nike project into one room, and we even disabled the Internet connection in the room just to guarantee there would be no leaks," Adams explains to me over the phone as Nike unveiled the real NFL uniforms to the world on Tuesday. "I first saw these a few months ago, so it's great to finally be able to show what they will look like in the game."

Adams flew out to Portland to meet with the uniform designers, and was one of the first people outside of Nike to see the early prototypes. "I saw the generic uniform that all of the new NFL uniforms were going to spawn from," says Adams. "At that meeting, we didn't see the actual uniforms, but they gave us enough information so we could get started with the design in 'Madden 13.' Based off the initial designs, we were able to get the templates into the game, and then a few weeks after that, I met with the designers again, and that's when I saw the final uniforms.

"That's when we were able to photograph all of the uniforms and get all of the pictures back to the artists at EA. It was all very hush-hush. It's probably the most secretive project I've been a part of since working at EA."

On top of the secret room and meetings, the producers of the game even had to make a separate build of the "Madden 13" preview code in order to limit access, blocking even other members of the "Madden" team from seeing some of the designs before they were announced. "That was the strangest part of the process for me," says Adams. "But if anything got out before the announcement, we wanted to make sure that the leak wasn't from us."

But now that Nike has finally unveiled the new look, Adams can't stop gushing about the cool details he notices upon closer inspection. "The material actual changes the colors for some of the teams," he says. "The Buccaneers color shifts a little bit with the pants, and the Saints, they usually have gold, but the way the uniform is matted, it changes the way it looks slightly. All of the cuts and designs are all very angular, and the stitching around the collar is very unique and will be really noticeable to a lot of the fans watching the games. There is also a new look to the pants where a lot of players are going to incorporate what looks like the Pro Combat-style pads to their thighs and knees, and that's very distinct.

"I think when people play 'Madden' and they zoom in, they are going to notice a lot of the cool little details, because everything from the stitching to the piping is different. The pants are different because they have a jersey mesh on the side, and they've never had that, so I think gamers are going to appreciate that we have all of the details right. We even have some of the details and jerseys Nike hasn't revealed just yet. There are a lot of great alternate uniforms this year that people are going to love. There are some big surprises that are coming with helmets and things like that, that people don't know about. I can't wait until they see it in the game."

The Madden Curse is so crazy though. Peyton Hillis last season. smh...

we should just also make it a waiting game for the player who gets to be on the cover to have a injury or a terrible season.

FYI the Madden 13 Cover vote contest is in the quarterfinals.

The matchups are:

Cam Newton vs. Larry Fitzgerald
Patrick Wills vs. Victor Cruz
Aaron Rodgers vs. Ray Rice.
Calvin Johnson vs. Rob Gronkowski

You can vote here.


It's either gonna be Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton imo.

Don't forget about the grass...

I thought '12 was pretty good –– waaaaaaaay better than '11.

I hope they add custom stadium music though.

^ Gameplay wise Madden 12 was pretty good.

There are still some areas for improvement for Madden 13 though

- Better WR/DB interaction
- More control over passing. I'd like the ability to throw back shoulder throws so that DBs can't get to them or throw touch passes to counteract the rocket LBs that can jump 10 feet in the air at a moments notice.
- The commentary. smiley: sick

Madden 12 was a good game. They basically need to just fix what Toine wrote above. The @$#@$#@ rocket jumping LBs HAVE TO go it's a game killer.

They also need that 2K type of commentary.

Edit: They also need to fix the online!!!! Let us play ranked matches in the lobbies. What is the point of even winning games if no one can see your rank/record?!? Needless to say I'm excited though.

The amount of strips was too much when i was playing (even when holding r1 with the ball).  Also they should make it so that if you do want to use the strip button, that you miss the tackle if you risk going for the strip sometimes. So when you play the guys that press strip everytime they can eat it !$%+

laugh.gif @ the game play is fine/ pretty good $#+@ is wrong with yall +*+% was pure trash

every year since the next gen its been more of the same "hey look at the game it looks great! look at the grass, look at the pre game show, look at the helmets, look and the fans"

sad the only thing i can really do is not buy the game But I play mostly ranked games

I'm glad the record doesn't show. I remember dudes would not play me because of my record. And low key if I saw someone with a 100-20 type record I wouldn't wanna see them depending on how I was feeling that day.  smiley: laugh Now I approach every game the same

I finally realized last year how #!$+ Madden is. They need some major gameplay changes for me to even consider buying this year's Madden.
