EA Sports released the first trailer to Madden 15 on Monday. In it, Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers sits in an empty locker room, with his voiceover saying, "I'm transforming, into something I never thought I could become ... if you don't know me by now, you will."
Midway through this sentence, the real-life Kuechly turns into a digital version. Little information is out on the game, but it seems the hook this year will be a drastic change -- "transformation".
GameStop's website has a bit more info on what to expect in the new version of the long-running video game franchise.
Welcome to Madden Season! Madden NFL 15 delivers everything you need to own your rivals on both sides of the field, including the most immersive defensive gameplay in franchise history.

Madden NFL 15 introduces a revolutionary crowd-sourced play-calling system with three distinct ways to run offense and defense: coach suggestions, Madden community picks, and concept plays providing a strategic edge to take on all rivals. Dynamic pre-game and halftime shows, in-depth player profiles, as well as enhanced on-field graphics deliver next-generation broadcast presentation.
