EA Sports College Football 25: Check Out The First Gameplay

The first year back for EA's college football series look like an authentic take on the sport.


EA has revealed a first look at the gameplay for EA Sports College Football 25, showcasing several new features ahead of the game's release in July. This year's take on college football puts a fast-paced emphasis on the sport, includes all 134 FBS schools, and the return of popular modes Dynasty and Road To Glory.

Some of the new features that fans can expect include a "Wear and Tear System" for your players, and you'll need to actively manage the health of your team by monitoring athletes and using strategic substitutions to keep them in fighting shape. Game-altering homefield advantages will also play a crucial part in buffing your team and EA says its new Pre-Snap Recognition feature makes the decision behind every snap matter more, motivating you to make the right decision and read the field during crucial moments.

The game is also aiming to be more authentic than ever before as it seeks to replicate the atmosphere of colleges during big football events. There's an expanded focus on sights, sounds, fight songs, mascots, commentators of games, and several other unique touches will help to bring each college to life. On the commentary side, Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will call the games, while Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer, and David Pollack will lead the play-by-play analysis of other games.

EA Sports College Football 25 launches on July 19 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, with three days of early access available for Deluxe Edition buyers, and EA Play subscribers can get a 10-hour trial starting July 16. This year's cover stars include Michigan running back Donovan Edwards, Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers, and Colorado wide receiver/defensive back Travis Hunter.
