Washington Redskins Will Be Featured in Madden 13 Demo

Some may call it a coincidence  - others will call it the Robert Griffin III effect. For the first time ever, Madden 13 is featuring two match-ups in their demo that will be released on August 14th  - Washington Redskins vs Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants vs San Francisco 49ers.

The NFC is taking over Madden 13! Well, the demo at least.

According to EA Sports: This year’s demo will give Madden die hard’s an opportunity to experience the Infinity Engine, the all-new real time physics engine, and a sneak peek at a few of the home, away, and throwback Nike uniforms.

The Madden NFL 13 demo will also offer two Play Now match-ups. Of course, as a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship, the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants will visit the San Francisco 49ers. The other involves the Washington Redskins and their franchise Quarterback, Robert Griffin III at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

Before the actual game action begins in either one of these match-ups, demo users will be able to check out the redesigned pregame presentation. Including a broadcast TV-inspired segment that features some top players in the upcoming game you’re about to play, followed up by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the booth talking about the story of the game.

On the field, the demo will give you access to everything that’s new in Madden NFL 13. “Total Control Passing to accurately place the ball anywhere on the field as the QB; the Ball Hawk mechanic to aggressively play the ball in the air as a defender; play action abort to cancel out of a play action when sensing pressure as a QB; use of Kinect (Xbox 360 only) to control pre-play audibles and adjustments with your voice; and of course the Infinity Engine that brings physics you can feel on every play,” Ea sports.

EA Sports will also be giving away free copies of Madden NFL 13 – “For a chance to win, complete a Madden NFL 13 demo game and share the results (from the end of game menu) across Twitter with the hashtag #Madden13Demo. One lucky winner every day will take home a VIP edition of Madden NFL 13 complete with some bonus swag.”

EA also encourages users to create yourself with a Game Face for use in the full version of the game on August 28th. This is the first year that Madden allow you to put yourself in the game as a player or coach using your Game Face before leading a virtual version of yourself to “gridiron glory.”

Madden NFL 13 designers say this is “the most complete overhaul the series has seen in a generation.”
