In Madden NFL 23, the football series' ever-popular Face of the Franchise is set to return with a theme of "The League."

Face of the Franchise is a staple Madden series mode that invites players to create their own custom players and play through a personalized career campaign. For those looking to see what the latest iteration of the mode has to offer, here are the latest details about Madden NFL 23 Face of the Franchise: The League.

Madden NFL 23 Face of the Franchise: The League Details

In Madden NFL 23, the Face of the Franchise mode invites players to step into the shoes of a professional football player on the cusp of perhaps losing their spot in the league.

Players will be dropped into their fifth NFL season at a skill position of their choice (QB, WR, RB, CB and MLB) while seeking a fresh start with a new team.

The first order of business is signing a one-year "prove-it" contract with one of 32 NFL teams and showing out on the field in order to earn rewards and level up.

In terms of gameplay, new position-specific mechanics courtesy of FieldSENSE and player-focused cameras are said to be main points of improvement. For instance, branching WR releases and cuts, defensive back presses and counters and an all-new defensive evade mechanic are described as having been "created specifically" with player-locked modes like Face of the Franchise: The League in mind.

EA Sports has also highlighted the addition of New Drive Goals and Drive Summaries, which will seemingly allow players to tweak their experience throughout the game and get feedback and rewards based on how well they play.

Performance boosts are obtainable from completing weekly activities and training between games while Madden Ratings Adjustor Chad Johnson will guide players' career developments by providing ratings updates on their Road to 99.
