    Looks like they've pretty much announced all the big improvements for '13. Nothing eye-popping but I like the direction of some of it. Depends if things like sights & sounds will get a real upgrade of just fluff like usual. Heisman Challenge is kinda unnecessary but I have to admit it sounds pretty cool. Hopefully the gameplay improvements give it a different feel. I'm still kinda burnt out on this game engine in its current state.


    Playbook #1: Sights & Sounds (More details released on April 2nd)
    Revel in the pageantry of college football game days with NCAA Football 13. Featuring new team run-outs, mascots and pre-game traditions along with significantly enhanced audio and new trophy presentations, NCAA Football 13 will deliver the passion and excitement of college football to fans across the nation.

    Playbook #2: Gameplay (More details released on April 17th)
    With a new passing system that changes the way quarterbacks and receivers play and respond, combined with a new read and react defensive AI system, NCAA Football 13 delivers greater realism on the virtual gridiron.

    Playbook #3: Dynasty (More details released on May 7th)
    Game days come to life with mid-game updates featuring a new studio analyst, plus enhanced commentary from NCAA Football veterans Kirk Herbstreit and Brad Nessler. Recruiting now goes deeper than ever with the addition of dynamic grades and the ability to scout players. Plus, there are even more ways to interact with your Dynasty from the web.

    Playbook #4: Heisman Challenge (More details released on May 28th)
    There are familiar faces on the field in NCAA Football 13, which now features a selection of former Heisman Trophy winners. With the new Heisman Challenge mode, fans have the ability to utilize the skill set of a legendary Heisman Trophy winner in a quest to match his award-winning historical performances and win the Heisman trophy once again.

    Playbook #5: Road to Glory (More details released on June 11th)
    The experience of being a college football superstar is now even more exciting with a new feature in Road to Glory that allows players to see and feel the game differently during key moments, increasing on-field awareness and creating amazing opportunities.

    They claim to have changed the speeds and animations to fixed most of the plays that simply didn't work before.

    Interested in the pitch from tackle during the option deal. Sounds like a nightmare. Finally got the shovel pass. We'll see if it works. The exclusion of the blind swat sounds interesting, but I wonder how it will work.

    Some pretty sweet additions this year. The CPU games simulate in real time with your game rather than all being simmed at once. Rece Davis provides in-studio updates from around the nation during dynasty games. And the ESPN ticker is in during games. IDK exactly how/if this will be implemented in Online Dynasty though.

    On the recruiting front, you have to scout players to go from a letter rating to an exact number. You get 20 hours of preseason time to scout. The roulette system is gone, you can pick what topic you want to discuss or let the recruit decide. There are 14 pitches and are dynamic even throughout a season. Also, recruits won't have a solid top 10 list. They may have open slots in there top 10 where any school can recruit them and jump into that slot.
