EA Tiburon is very proud of the new free running system in Madden NFL 25; this producer’s video shows off some of the new moves you’ll be able to employ.

As detailed on the EA Sports blog, the new Run Free mechanic provides new moves for several kinds of players. All players have access to all Run Free moves, but those with higher stats may have special versions of them,

Ball carriers are the most obvious beneficiaries of the new system. They can utilise the following moves: Acceleration Burst (hold down the right trigger); Deceleration and Stutter Steps (hold down the left trigger; Jukes, Back Jukes and Jump Cuts (flick the analog sticks), Spins (B or circle); Dives (X or square) Hurdles (Y or triangle); and Stumble Recovery (right stick to rebalance or use the momentum).

Stronger back players can use Stiff-arms (tap A or cross) and Trucks and Truck Spins (right stick).

Speedy backs can use Left-Right Juke Combos and Precision Jukes; Spin Jukes, Juke Spins and Jab Step Spins; Precision Back Jukes and Back Juke-Spin Combos, all of which are triggered by various analog stick combos.

The blog goes into greater detail on how these moves are performed and combined, but the video below is perhaps the easiest way to understand what the heck Tiburon is on about.

Madden NFL 25 is due in August on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
