Thanks to Xbox One X we are reaching new goals in the graphics and gameplay of Madden NFL 18. The resolution of the game can be adjusted to Ultra HD 4K, something that really brings out the details of the athletes.

When you combine Ultra HD 4K with a constant gameplay at 60 fps and add improvements like an increased level of detail in the camera, you will notice and feel an immediate difference when starting your game. This means that the elements such as the helmet and the face of the athlete become more realistic, giving you the feeling that you are inside the stadium.
