Coming Fall 2004, the makers of the highly acclaimed NFL 2k series, together with ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports, will bring about a new way to see, hear, and experience the virtual football battle.
ESPN Videogames revealed today new details about their upcoming football title, ESPN NFL 2005. ESPN NFL 2005 will introduce several original features in Franchise Mode, the completely new Maximum Tackle™ system, and further builds upon the exciting ESPN presentation elements that include incorporation of ESPN personalities Suzy Kolber, Trey Wingo, and Mel Kiper, as well as an expanded role for Chris Berman.
ESPN NFL 2005 features Maximum Tackle™, a new dynamic gameplay mechanic that gives gamers a deeper level of control on both offense and defense. On offense as the ball carrier, the player can fight for extra yards while being tackled; with superstar players, there's even a good chance of breaking out of tackles. On defense, players now have full control when making tackles where they can choose to go for the big highlight hit, or the textbook wrap-up on opponents. Maximum Tackle™ adds a new dimension to the on-field game, offering a realistic and exciting gameplay experience.
Many enhancements have been made to ESPN NFL 2005's Franchise mode. Couch coaches hungering for the next innovations will be amazed with several new additions including week-to-week prep of the team's training and workout schedules, the ability to direct the coaches focus, and a new watch-and-react visual simulator.
Further realizing the commitment to telecast quality, ESPN NFL 2005 will feature energetic Suzy Kolber as both sideline and post-game interview reporter. SportsCenter anchor Trey Wingo, and ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. offer insight and opinion on the happenings in the NFL. A true-to-life representation of Chris Berman will provide game wrap-ups and all the hard-hitting highlights from the week's games.
