The lights are on
NCAA Football 13 developer EA Tiburon is addressing both legacy issues and introducing new elements to this year's game thanks to some exciting gameplay changes on both sides of the ball.
NCAA 13 gameplay designer Larry Richart says that the gameplay team has doubled in size and that the title contains "the most gameplay changes we've made in the console generation."
This is just the tip of the iceberg for the game announcements, so be sure to check back in the future for details on Dynasty mode and more. Don't forget to check out the screenshot gallery at the bottom for some new shots as well.
THE PASSING GAME
Like an inexperienced QB, past NCAA titles have struggled in the passing game. Because of either super-jumping linebackers or poor accuracy, QBs could only consistently throw to a few areas on the field, which limited your options in the passing game. Add in the ineffectiveness of play-action plays, and even a 2nd and five could feel like a third and long.

I really hate to be so negative but I will believe it when I see it.
Every year EA promises that they are fixing legacy issues across Madden and NCAA and every year the game pretty much feels the same as the year before or it somehow gets worse.
I think one of the saddest things about this generation of consoles is that there hasn't been a single excellent football game. The best they ever got was being acceptable and that's if you were really desperate to play football which I have been but the last few have been so lousy.
GO MICHIGAN STATE!!! Anyways this looks pretty good.
It's looking good so far. Keep up the updated GI!
let'go boise state !!! but i have always liked NCAA.
I can't wait for this.
Cant wait to play this! GO DAWGS!
NO MORE SUPER JUMPING LINEBACKERS!!! That was my biggest complaint throwing to the center was those guys jumping 80 feet into the air to knock down a pass. An exaggeration, yes, but it still happened. A lot!
"In NCAA 13, defenders do not react to passes unless they turn their head to locate the ball or they react directly to a receiver's movements."
YES, YES, YES! Let's hope that moves to Madden as well. Tired of defensive backs having eyes in the back of their heads. -_-
If only Madden were as good as the NCAA series.
I like how in the preview in the new issue of game informer they show a kentucky wildcat player running over two louisville players! LOL!
Now all it needs is to deliver friends to play with!
I like 430 added catches, but how about 430 new tackles too?
Does anyone not proof read their articles anymore? You're supposed to be professionals... be professional!
This is the only game I get annually. I love it. This is shaping up to be the best yet.
