EA SPORTS UNVEILS NCAA FOOTBALL 13 PLAYBOOK #4: “HEISMAN CHALLENGE”
May 30, 2012 – The fourth EA SPORTS NCAA Football 13 feature playbook, “Heisman Challenge”, is now available on the NCAA Football 13 playbook page. For the first time in franchise history, familiar faces of years past are now on the field in NCAA Football 13, where fans can build a national powerhouse by placing one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners on the team of their choice for the upcoming NCAA season. Under center, in the backfield, or split wide, utilize a legend’s skill set in the quest to win the Heisman Trophy. Video interviews with each Heisman Trophy winner will be unlocked throughout the season, detailing the achievements of their glory days. In addition, fans can truly test themselves by matching their Heisman Legend’s historical performance in one season, which will not only win the Heisman Trophy, but also unlock each player in Road to Glory.

Reaction Time literally slows down the action, allowing users to look for openings in defenses and perform skill moves to get into the open field, before smoothly transitioning back to regular speed. Gameplay has also been enhanced to include special teams and an updated playcall system.
