    I don’t know if anyone saw this. But, I think they’re building a new engine. Not using madden.

    This would most certainly make the "delay" worth it

    On the one hand, that's exciting. On the other, it's probably going to be glitchy as fuck for the first few years.

    ain't no stress test like millions of people playing your game to death. Game will be broken within 24 hours of release, but they can patch much easier nowadays.

    The fact this is a real game and not some live services crap that they tried to pull with NBA Live (RIP) should really have people a little more optimistic

    I'm excited, but it's reasonable to be pessimistic/cynical when it comes to EA.

    Wait what on NBA Live? I tried it when it came back and it sucked compared to 2k but it felt like a game? What does "live services" mean?

    Can I play this by myself or is it only online dynasties?

    Didn’t they go free to play? Or was that never launched? I remember it being announced.

    A live services game is basically what you know as a free to play or micro transaction based game. Or a game that “lives online” where things change and promotions and special events pop up. Fortnite obviously. Ultimate Team is a live services mode but at least NCAA will have offline modes and be a traditional game (it seems) even if it has that mode too.

    I believe it’s just the regular game with all te updated stuff. They have some pretty in depth instructions on setting it all up. I just don’t have a physical copy of the game anymore which I believe is needed.

    Oh I was talking about the one from back in 2017/2018. I don't think they've released anything since then.

    Will they need an individual contract with each player for NIL purposes since there isn’t a players association?
