EA Sports has shared new images of Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21 following EA Play Live, where the games were shown off and discussed. The new “4K” images were posted on EA’s website, and the description says they represent “game engine footage.”
One of the Madden NFL 21 images shows superstar QB Tom Brady in his new Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey following his trade from New England to Tampa Bay. His image is meant to showcase the game’s new environmental effects–in this case, it’s the rain specifically. The image also highlights how jerseys will be affected by rain; you can see the impact on the cloth of Brady’s jersey here.
The other images show how, once again, EA is highlighting perspiration to help demonstrate a new level of fidelity with the sports games. In one of the FIFA 21 images, we see the outside of Liverpool FC’s home field, Anfield, with fans taking selfies. This is presumably meant to demonstrate how FIFA 21 will feature an “unprecedented matchday experience” encompassing elements beyond the sport itself.
