First Madden NFL 12 details dropped by EA

EA Tiburon has confirmed the first details of this year's iteration of Madden, including two new features.

In the first blog for the game, released during half-time at the SuperBowl, the first big feature for the game is that you'll be able to have surprise onside kicks. There's a video of it in action from the Madden NFL 12 build below.

This article contained embedded media which can no longer be displayed.

The second feature is something known as Tuner Sets, which was first introduced in NHL and NCAA Football titles, where series creative director Ian Cummings said the feature would change things like "gameplay tuning to franchise data to even presentation aspects."
