One of the features of the Madden franchsie that has seen some incredible reworking in recent years is the community aspect of the game. Madden NFL 12 is no exception, as this year EA has revealed that it will be revamping the Online Communities features in the game. When you hop online in Madden NFL 12 you’ll be given the opportunity to create a community for you and up to 2000 players to join in on. These new communities will foster places where gamers can get together and play against each other under specific condition set by the coordinator as well as leaderboards specific to the community.
This has been a problem with online play in sports games for years, and it looks like EA has finally got a viable solution with the new communities feature. If you enjoy sim based gameplay, you can join a league with players who all join up with the expectations of playing sim football, or any other set of rules that the are put in place by the community organizer.
The Community features are also said to be much more than just rule sets. The revamped online communities section will be a complete stat tracker for the players in the community, and it will even facilitate the OTP features that were extremely popular in last year’s Madden.
