Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2020 is releasing this September on Xbox One and PS4 and will feature numerous improvements, upgrades, and new features.

Gameplay will be a strong focus within the 2020 edition of Maximum Football as the team continues to invest time into providing the best on-field performance.

One of the most notable new features includes a full football Play Designer – a feature that hasn’t been seen on any video game consoles in over 10 years. The Play Designer incorporates the ability to create and customize both offensive and defensive custom plays. This allows gamers to take complete ownership of their team, their playbook, and their on-field results.

“We are excited to have the community put their creativity and knowledge of pigskin to use in this new innovative way”, said Dave Winter, Founder and Lead Developer of Maximum Football. “We continue to emphasize customization within our game and this was the next logical step.”

In addition to the Play Designer, Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2020 will include the following enhancements:

Unity Partnership – Unique partnership with Unity to enhance the core infrastructure of the game, featuring improvements to the following areas: game performance (framerate), lighting system, player movement, object avoidance, and custom receiver animations.

Dynasty Mode 2.0 – Player awards, conference championships, player transfers, new Bowl games, updated depth chart screen, faster simulation engine, diverse playcalling (giving each team a new identity), enhanced accuracy in recruit generation (including height and weight), detailed recruit commitments and player suspensions, and much more!

More Customization – College teams added to Play Now, new 32 team league added to Play Now and Season Mode, brand new customization hub, easy color picker based upon team’s primary and secondary colors, and additional stock logos.

Play Designer – Full play designer for offense and defense. Implement standard playbook strategies with receiver route trees, read progressions, play action, run types, man and zone coverage, blitz packages, QB spy, and even set player motion.

Custom Controls – Map your own buttons! Customize your on-field game controls to get a familiar feel or a brand new one.

Community Feedback Gameplay Improved linemen interaction, expanded defensive AI, new passing game (including more tipped passes and more aggressive DBs), faster QB animations, and improved handoff speed to running back.
