The online communities will provide a new way for football fans to meet and play with one another. You'll be able to create and join Communities of up to  2,000 people to compete in your own leaderboards that can be customized with different variables like length, gameplay sliders, game speed, penalties and more.

With Madden NFL 12's online communities you'll be able to play head-to-head within your community, or team up with other members from your community to play ranked Team Play against other communities. For a lengthy list of all some of the highlights of Madden's online communities hit the break.
