All new Madden 25 gameplay features

What is BOOM Tech?

TECH Boom is the new upgrade added to the FieldSENSE system in Madden NFL 25. This enhancement package aims to elevate the gameplay realism of Madden NFL 25 to a new level.

To achieve this, EA introduced new physic-based tackling mechanics to ensure players experience realistic control with every tackle. In addition, a new ball carrier balance and recovery system will determine specific BOOM Tech animations based on the hit’s quality and the players’ ratings.

Revamped Madden 25 Franchise Mode

EA Sports announced significant changes to Franchise Mode in Madden NFL 25, including improved AI for generating new players for free agency and draft selections. Additionally, following the crossplay beta in Madden 24, the devs announced that crossplay will be available in Franchise Mode from day one.

Finally, EA announced new animations and dynamic storylines that will provide a more immersive experience in meeting rooms, coach’s offices, press conferences, and the highly anticipated NFL Draft Night.

Improved NFL immersion in Madden 25

Finally, the developers announced that Madden NFL 25 will take immersion to the next level with enhanced game audio. EA Sports will introduce new broadcast teams, improved crowd audio, and an increased variety of on-field sound effects like pad collisions, grunts, exertions, and more.

NFL fans will be pleased to know that Mike Tirico, Greg Olsen, Kate Scott, and Brock Huard will join Charles Davis and Brandon Gaudin as the new broadcast commentators.

All in all, that’s everything you need to know about Madden NFL 25’s new gameplay features. While you await the Madden NFL 25 Deep Dive announcements, we recommend reconsidering Madden NFL 24 Franchise Mode to rebuild teams with the game’s best rookies or fastest players.
