Risk vs. Reward – Defenders can now make aggressive or conservative tackles in the open field, with proximity cones showing the effective range of each. Aggressive tackles can lead to big plays and fumbles, but conservative tackles are more likely to bring the ball-carrier down without giving up extra yards. The choice is yours, but so are the consequences.
Redesigned Coverage Logic - Have a bigger impact in the secondary with redesigned AI, providing more intelligence to how players react to the ball carrier. Defenses are now smarter when going for a swat vs. an interception or a tackle. Man coverage has also been improved to impact how much separation receivers are able to get on cuts in their routes, resulting in improved behavior of the defender.
Run The Gauntlet – Skills Trainer has been expanded to teach not only gameplay skills, but strategy and football concepts as well.
