Gridiron gameplay mechanics
Madden NFL 20 follows the gameplay mechanics of the previous installments of the series. The game is still faithful simulator of the American football matches, where the player has to lead their team to victory by securing yards and scoring touchdowns.However, Madden 20 introduces several new features to the gameplay. Each team’s playbook will now be more diverse, which means more variety on the field. An on-field trainer feature will introduce new players to the rules of the game, helping them learn the ropes of gameplay. There’s also the superstar-driven play calling, where plays are designed around the teams’ MVPs. Said superstars are now less powerful, having their X-factor largely debuffed, which makes for more realistic and even gameplay.
Story of a rookie
Madden NFL 20 introduces the “Face of the Franchise: QB1” mode. Similar to the Superstar Mode from Madden 06, in Face of the Franchise the player creates their custom quarterback character and leads them through all the branches of NFL career, starting with the collegiate football associations. There are 10 teams the player can choose from divided between 4 associations. The mode features a Scenario Engine, which will present the player with customized events and challenges, on their way to becoming the best player in the league.
Another interesting feature of Madden NFL 20 is Franchise mode. It works similarly to the Face of the Franchise, having player climb the ladder of the National Football League. However, Franchise mode offers many more options. Instead of playing only as the quarterback, Franchise lets the player be a coach or the owner of a football team. The game can be played in single and multiplayer, pitting the player against 32 other teams. Franchise mode allows competing for the Superbowl cup as well as an annual Pro Bowl award and other, seasonal trophies.
