• IN 'MADDEN 17' THE LA COLISEUM HAS 1 TINY CHALLENGE


A legacy fan of your Madden sports game franchise produced a disturbing discovery: In its most up-to-date version, Madden NFL 17, the evening sun is inside the east, the absolute wrong side for it to set anywhere on planet Earth. It only takes place throughout games set in Los Angeles at the Memorial Coliseum, which can be the Rams' household stadium once again. As a result, the case is either an isolated aberration or even a sly dig at how upside-down crazy it truly is that the team came back to Southern California right after leaving it for St. Louis, Missouri 21 years ago.

Only a dedicated fan acquainted with exactly where the Los Angeles stadium is situated inside the actual world could tell that the sun is on the incorrect side with the sky. But since the game's interactive tutorial sets the player up within the Coliseum to find out the ropes, every player paying that close of consideration could notice. The error may be due to the game's improvement team rushing to re-situate the Rams back in LA immediately after they filed to relocate in early January 2016. However the tipster also provided Kotaku with screenshots suggesting that the sun might be misplaced inside the Cowboys' and Chiefs' stadiums, also.

What will Madden's studio EA do about it? Probably nothing at all. The problem does not affect gameplay, only the reputation to get a series with such interest to detail that it animates trash talk. A spokesperson confirmed to Kotaku that they may repair it in subsequent year's edition of the franchise, but implied it wasn't definitely a priority to address:

"It's a testament to our fans that they know anything about their favourite teams, which includes exactly where the sun sets in their stadium," an EA spoksperson told Kotaku. "Our art team is investigating the issue, and functioning on correcting it for future editions of Madden NFL. Within the meantime, we hope players get pleasure from this sneak peek into what the planet might look like when the Earth rotated in the opposite direction."
