EA Sports Releases First Madden NFL 15 Screenshot

EA Sports Releases First Madden NFL 15 Screenshot

On the heels of signing a massive contract extension, San Francisco 49ers quarterback is staying in the spotlight as the centerpiece of the first official Madden NFL 15 screenshot.

Given the fidelity of this (probably touched up) screenshot, this is undoubtedly a new-generation shot. We're not sure what Kaepernick's teammates are doing behind him, but it's probably a good idea that he's high tailing it the other way because that looks like an awful blocking formation. The major takeaway from this screenshot is that the game is featuring individual player tattoos for the first time.

Copyright laws make featuring tattoos a tricky endeavor because the artist owns the rights. Just last year, tattoo artist Stephen Allen sued the company and former running back Ricky Williams for featuring his work on the box of NFL Street in 2004. The case was eventually dismissed by the plaintiff. But because of the lawsuit, the NFLPA recommended that players get waivers from their tattoo artists to avoid these legal entanglements in the future. SportsBusiness Journal writer Eric Fisher reports Kaepernick did just that, which is why EA Sports had the go ahead to add the tattoo work.

Monolith and Warner Bros. have opted for a flashy, cinematic trailer to commemorate Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s E3 showing. In the new video, we get a narrative look at what happens when Talion dominates an underling to intimidate his evil superior.

This trailer nicely compliments the one we shared in May, featuring a heavy amount of gameplay. Whereas that trailer set Talion on his quest (and was accompanied by an in-depth, hands-on preview), this one shows him executing his mission.

Pre-Order Skylanders Figure Gearshift Before The Game Releases

Worried about your favorite store running out of the Skylanders toy you want before you get a chance to run down there and grab the character yourself? Activision will now let you pre-order certain Skylanders collectibles before they hit stores.

Gearshift is a Tech element character created on the Tech island of Metallana by King Mercurus. The King thinks of Gearshift as his own daughter, but Gearshift prefers to hang out in the depths of her kingdom among the subterranean workers rather than the castle. Gearshift also helped save her nation and her father from an invasion of Stromriders, which is why she was inaugurated onto the Trap Team.

The Gearshift figure won't officially release until 2015, but fans of the franchise can get a hold of her when the game releases on October 5 of this year if they preorder her limited early release. Pre-orders open up today, so Skylanders players should get their tech together if they want early access to this character.
