Electronic Arts stepped up their promotion of the next installment in the Madden video game franchise by releasing a new trailer featuring actual Madden 15 gameplay.
EA Sports has put a focus on improving the defensive gameplay in this year’s addition. Fitting with Luke Kuechly being featured in early trailers and Richard Sherman winning the vote to appear on the cover.
To put in perspective just how far the visuals in the Madden franchise have come, this tweet puts Madden 15 next to the 1988′s John Madden Football.

Not all players will be rendered with detail all the way down to their tattoos. In fact, only Colin Kaepernick will as his tattoo artist gave special permission to have his work appear in the game.
Madden 15 is set for release on August 26.
