Gallery: Madden NFL 15 screenshots

EA Sports has released a batch of screenshots from Madden NFL 15.

The 27th game in the Madden series will have more of a focus on defensive play.

"New defensive features and mechanics allow fans to transform into their rival's worst nightmare, with an arsenal of new pass rush moves, new open-field tackling mechanics, new defensive cameras and much more," the company has stated.

"Like the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks, you can win championships and bask in the glory of success by building a great defense fit to challenge the best offenses in the game.

"Fans will also experience an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day like never before with dramatic all-new camera angles, as well as dynamic pre-game and halftime features."

The first gameplay trailer for Madden 15 was released in early June, showing these new defensive moves in action.

The game is set to release on August 26 in North America and August 29 in Europe on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
