E3 2019: EA Sports Dishes the Dirt on Madden NFL 20 Gameplay

Madden NFL 20: Closed beta announced, gameplay revealed

Madden NFL 20's X-Factor abilities turn elite players into superheroes

EA Play 2019 is underway, and EA has detailed everything coming to this year's entry in the Madden franchise.

Feel like an NFL Superstar in Madden NFL 20.

The brand new career campaign is called Face of the Franchise. According to Cruz, Face of the Franchise is created to be a massive simulation of an National Football League career, starting with the drama that follows the player's college career through the National Football League draft, then finally in an National Football League franchise.

The presentation also included some clips of first-look gameplay and a deeper dive into Superstar X-Factors for certain players and new Zone Abilities that can activate said X-Factors.

Anger at Nissan over Renault's failure to back governance reforms
The relationship between Renault and Nissan has been strained by the fallout from the November arrest of Ghosn in Tokyo. Nissan is, therefore, poised to urge Renault to significantly cut the 43.4% stake, two people told Reuters .

Along with Face of the Franchise, the Cruz also noted that older features, such as the Pro Bowl, will be making a return this year, along with the Coach Mode. Each player will specialise in different areas.

It feels to me like the abilities could wind up being a bit OP-some of the X-Factor abilities we've heard about are things like flawless passing accuracy on cross body throws and ideal accuracy while throwing on the run. Cover star Pat Mahomes has "Bazooka", which is exclusive to him. RPOs, or run-pass option plays, are coming to the game as well. JuJu Smith Schuster has the "Double Me" X-Factor which demands additional attention from the defense. Ultimate Team also got a little time to shine, highlighting the Missions aspect which should help in getting more ideal players faster.

The Closed Beta will feature all game modes but Face of the Franchise and Madden Ultimate Team and players can choose to play as the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots, and the New Orleans Saints.
