The fifth and final EA SPORTS NCAA Football 13 feature playbook, “Road to Glory”, is now available on the NCAA Football 13 playbook page. As first unveiled in Playbook #4: Heisman Challenge, the experience of being a college football superstar is now even more exciting with Reaction Time. This feature slows down gameplay during key moments, increasing on-field awareness and opening up more opportunities as you sense how the play will unfold. In addition, NCAA Football 13 lets you customize your experience in Road to Glory with all-new Scouting Reports that detail the upcoming week of practice and Difficulty Options that allow users to choose their challenge.
First introduced in Playbook #4: Heisman Challenge, Reaction Time throws players into slow motion for a limited amount of time each play. Reaction Time may be limited, but players can refill the meter by scoring touchdowns, converting first downs and making big plays. Once players release the trigger for Reaction Time the game seamlessly transitions back to full speed. Every camera angle for Reaction Time was tuned to bring fans as close to the action as possible without losing track of what’s happening on the field.
While functional in both Heisman Challenge and Road to Glory, Reaction Time in Road to Glory is based completely off a user’s Awareness Rating. The higher a player’s Awareness Rating is, the larger their Reaction Time meter grows. While players may not start off with a large amount of Reaction Time, those who invest in improving their Awareness will eventually see significant dividends.
Fans will be greeted with a Scouting Report when entering the brand new College practice facility, which is now equipped with two fields for separate Offensive and Defensive practice. The all-new Scouting Report details important information about the upcoming week of practice – including which players to practice with and what playbooks will be used.
In addition to a brand new College practice facility, more than eight new High School stadiums have been added to Road to Glory, with a variety of backdrops ranging from small towns in the middle of cornfields to downtown of a metropolitan city. These new stadiums bring to life a diverse atmosphere in Road to Glory, especially when importing TeamBuilder teams.
A highly requested community update, NCAA Football 13 now allows you to adjust the difficulty modes in Road to Glory. Each level affects your progression for Coach Trust leveling system, XP progression system and gameplay, Players can choose from difficulty settings ranging from Freshman for beginners to Heisman Difficulty for the ultimate challenge.
NCAA Football 13 will be available on the Xbox 360an PlayStation 3 on July 10.
