After more than a decade, we are finally getting our first look at a new college football video game.

EA Sports dropped the first trailer for EA Sports College Football 25 on Friday, revealing it will feature all of the pageantry and traditions fans expect from college football, plus give fans an experience well worth the wait.

There hasn’t been a college football video game since NCAA Football 14, and fans have been clamoring to pick up the sticks with their alma mater or favorite college football team.

But that’s not all EA Tiburon has to deliver with College Football 25; the studio has to ensure that it’s not just delivering a Madden NFL football game with a college football skin over it.

Based on the trailer, EA Tiburon seems to have gone to great lengths to ensure the traditions of the 134 FBS universities in the game are represented.

With sports games, the presentation is one of the most important details to nail down. EA Sports College Football 25 will feature Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit calling marquee matchups while Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer, and David Pollack handle other games.

Where you play will also play an important role, thanks to EA Sports College Football 25’s CampusIQ.

Home-field advantage will play an important role whether it is the Big House in Michigan, the Horseshoe in Ohio, or the Swamp in Florida.

The screen will shake for visiting teams, and players’ stats will fluctuate throughout the game. Combined with a wear-and-tear system, it will force you to manage fatigue levels because there are more chances for mistakes.

Folks at EA Sports have emphasized to me over and over that this game isn’t just a Madden reskin, it’s going to feel like college football again.

The trailer really emphasized that. Entrance traditions, Iowa Wave, triple-option, lots of G5 schools. It’s why CFB is unique.
