A couple of the developers at EA Tiburon talk a little about NCAA Football 12 and give a tease of some of the new features in the game.

This video trailer/developer diary (featuring producer Ben Haumiller and art director Jean Adams) talks about the HDR lighting in the game. Last year NCAA 11 introduced a new look for the franchise that was pretty cool, but this clearly takes things to a new level. It's about how different parts of the players are lighted appropriately and how exposure makes things pop.

It's also worth noting that these aren't just still shots, but appear to be taken from a paused replay, allowing art director Jean Adams to pan around an actual scene from the game. Will it look this good in real life? We can't wait to see.

Apart from the new uniforms, you'll also notice turf coming up from the field and what look to be different kinds of tackles from defenders, including sliding.

We expect to hear more on the game as spring goes by so stay tuned. Until then, enjoy the video and screens below.


Here's a look at a comparison shot of the grass between this year and last year's game
