Back in April we brought you a few more details for the much-anticipated Madden NFL 12 game. If you read the article in question, you will know that it included a brief explanation of the Online Communities feature. We now have some more good news for all you Madden NFL fans out there, as we’ve recently discovered a more detailed description of the aforementioned feature.

As Rick Wallace from xxlgaming.com notes. The Online Communities feature provides players with a great way to both meet and play with other Madden NFL 12 users. The feature enables gamers to create and join Communities of up to 2,000 like-minded players, where they can compete on their own leaderboards based on customized game styles including game speed and game length.

Players will not only be able to play head-to-head games within their Community, they will also have the ability to team up with fellow members to play ranked Team Play games against other Communities. Players aren’t limited to joining one Community either, as they do have the option of joining up to 5 different Communities at once in order to meet various play styles.

When creating a Community, players will have the option to either leave it open to the public and be able to send invites to anyone they choose, or set a Community password that has to be entered when other players attempt to join. The Community creator not only has the ability to set the ‘house rules,’ they can also give certain members ‘Manager Permissions.’

Having ‘Manager Permissions’ allows you to promote other members, change Community options and sliders and even kick out other members. Every slider and game option in the Madden NFL 12 game is editable, and can be applied to all head-to-head games within the Community. All Online Communities games will be ranked on the Community leaderboard.

Not only will recent game results be displayed for the entire Community to view, individual stats will also be tracked and ranked. Each Community will have its own private lobby where members will be able to chat with each other, as well as gather teammates when taking on other communities. You will also be view a box score and participants of a game in progress from the lobby.
