See Madden NFL 25's next-gen 'living worlds' in action

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Madden NFL 25 will have more realistic "living worlds," refinements coming to the next-generation console versions of EA Sports' venerable football franchise designed to make the game more atmospheric than ever.

Among those features are more reactive crowds comprised of up to 40,000 3D models, according to Madden NFL 25's new Living Worlds trailer. The crowd, one that's "active in the broadcast," will react to big plays made on their home turf, just as players, coaches and cameramen will react more realistically to action on the sidelines.

"Everything is alive," the trailer promises. "Everyone is interacting with the play... It makes you feel more involved, more immersed in the game."

Madden NFL 25 is coming to PS4 on Nov. 15 and Xbox One on Nov. 22, the same day each console launches in North America.
