If you’re a Creative Director of Madden 25, you’re probably a bit bummed that there isn’t a Playbook series out right now highlighting all the changes you’ve made to the game this year, but Michael Young assures us there’s plenty of it in a recent podcast interview with VSN Radio.

Among the many new changes and additions made to Madden NFL 25, Young made mention of a new sideline reporter that has not yet been revealed, as well as confirmed an expanded role for Adam Schefter that will feature all the things he was involved in last season with the Twitter feed and breaking stories, but also now with draft commentary.

Other interesting enhancements noted include the advancement of the Connected Franchise website, which promises to be much more functional as well as the addition of Commissioner tools for online leagues, although Young wasn’t able to expand on what the latter feature would entail exactly.

For a more exhaustive list of what topics Madden 25 Creative Director Michael Young spoke about, you can listen to the full interview over on VSN. Alternatively, OperationSports has put together an excellent bullet list of the things that stood out to them during the broadcast. For something even quicker, we’ve put together a list of five things that we thought you wouldn’t want to miss.

• Sideline Reporter (more info later)
• More realistic replay system (real camera locations, some play-specific angles)
• Adam Schefter draft commentary (Schefter’s role compared to what he had in Head Coach 09)
• Connected Franchise website improved (more functionality promised)
• Stadium sounds re-done (more stadium-specific chants, sound tracks)

P.S. You can now add “ohsodangerous” to Words With Friends or Draw Something to play some fun app games with us from time to time. Just because.
