The extra space means "thousands" of new shots are already being filmed during the development of Madden NFL 23 in the past –- 700 in the week before a late May touring of the studio Madden 23 Coins, Murray adds, adding to more than 12.000 footage filmed in the seven years that this technology has been available. Murray is correct that past Maddens have provided a variety animations, following the whistle or after the halftime gun, in order to prevent its cinematics from becoming boring and predictable. However, as I consider the new space he has to work with I'm compelled to believe he's more able to frame up a shot from a sideline camera since he can literally move himself away from that line, in virtual real-time.
"For us, we always desire to ground it to the ground, and then begin pushing buttons from there," Murray says. "Otherwise, we would just have 1.000 drones flying all over the place. And then we have an extremely unique obligation, where the fans are the best in watching this game on a Sunday, Thursday, and Monday from their couch. Therefore, if we don't portray starting from day one and don't replicate our game in a way that you're skilled at watching, then we've failed you immediately and right there."
The D-Cam, or Director Cam is just one of the elements of a focus on presentation and visuals. It isn't necessarily a major overhaul, but is an emphasis on making sure everything in the game is created with painstaking authenticity. Typically, sports professionals back up this claim with the number of 360-degree head scans of players have been added to the game each year, however, Madden NFL 23 indeed has many more of them.
But what about the "Mobile Scan Truck" which EA Sports parked outside Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium last year, and also during events like NFL's league meetings and Scouting Combine, speak to how committed to the cause headed by Terrance Newell, Madden's art director, and Juan Chavez, its characters director. The truck wasn't merely there to do muzzle shots. Newell picked five Kansas City Chiefs of various sizes and dimensions to Cheap Madden 23 Coins better show the range of NFL players their bodies. Before this year's event, Madden had used a single base model, or "silhouette," that was changed to depict larger or more leaner archetypes.
