Madden NFL Football 18 creative director, Rex Dickson, has revealed the new WR/DB mechanic controls for this year.
This is mainly for User vs User play, but we are trying to get confirmation that these new animations will play out in User vs CPU gameplay this year.
UPDATE: Rex Dickson has since confirmed all the new WR/DB interactions will occur in all game modes, including User vs CPU.
WR/DB interactions have been a long contentious topic in the series. While improved last year, it looks like the press/release aspect is receiving what looks to be a nice overhaul this year.
As always, stay tuned to Sports Gamers Online for more info on this feature and all that is EA Play and E3.
