New Madden NFL 15 video introduces you to The Gauntlet
Welcome to The Gauntlet, bi*ch.
EA Sports has released a new gameplay video for Madden NFL 15 highlighting The Gauntlet, a new mode that offers a series of unique challenges to test your skills in all facets of the game.
Here's the thing about The Gauntlet though, it's set up like an old-school arcade challenge. It features 40 levels of challenging obstacles that you must successfully complete with a limited number of attempts (lives). If you fail, you start over. Oh yea, and did I mention that every five stages of The Gauntlet introduces a Boss Level with a "unique, offbeat" challenge? Because it will -- I'm talking challenges like kicking a 100 yard field goal in hurricane-force winds or, as shown in the video, trying to score a touchdown by running through a field of reporters.
The primary goal of the Guantlet, EA says, is to "provide a fun, approachable way for new users to learn Madden, as well as giving franchise veterans tools to make themselves better and truly challenge their Madden prowess."
