It's good to see EA finally getting around to innovating in ways that actually have me seriously looking forward to a new Madden for a change. While we will obviously be hearing all about Madden NFL 10’s new features at E3 next week, EA has gone ahead and revealed that this year’s game will feature online co-op. In addition, it looks as though...wait, what?! That's awesome! EA press release, tell me more please.
“Team up with a friend online to work on game strategy, practice plays, and see the field from a unique point-of-view, thanks to position-specific camera angles. Change player positions after each play to experience the NFL from a completely different dynamic. Want to find out what it’s like to play as a wide receiver on one play, and the left offensive tackle on another? With Madden NFL 10 Online Co-op, the choice is yours.”
It might not be the next-gen co-op baseball experience that I’ve been dreaming about for years, but it still sounds incredibly cool, and I can’t wait to try it out. Plus, it could actually make playing Madden online enjoyable and civilized for the first time since...ever. Now that’s innovation.
