Aside from purchasing this game just for the cover, EA just revealed yesterday one more feature that sounds like it will make my investment that much more worthwhile. The Online Communities mode will be available with Madden NFL 12 when it launches in August. This is supposed to allow people to filter who they play games with in order to make their online experiences as fun as possible. Here’s how it works.
Anybody who decides to play online will have the option to create their own community, and allow anywhere from 2 to 2,000 people to join it. Each group will have its own set of leaderboards to mess with, and also the ability to tweak the rules however they see fit. People can also set the group to be public or private, track each and every statistic for their players, and play team against team online. I personally think that this is an interesting idea that could end up working out really well if people take full advantage of what it can do.
What are your thoughts on this idea, and will you try it out when the game comes out?, let us know in the comments below.
