A change of pace – new modes in this fall’s EA Sports games

By on @richgrisham

At least two of this fall’s biggest EA Sports titles will feature an all-new way to play the game, combining elements of online play, strategic team-building, and fantasy sports. Whether Madden 16′s Draft Champions or FIFA 16’s Ultimate Team Draft ultimately begin a new chapter of experiences for players remains to be seen, but these are big experiments with significant potential down the line. Rich and Bryan chat about the impact of the modes, what they may mean now and in the future, and if they may ultimately accomplish their goals.
