In the first look of the highly anticipated video game release, several of the NFL’s brightest stars were featured to show off the game’s updated high-definition graphics, gameplay, and features.
As shown above, Smith was the first former Wildcat shown to highlight the game’s new pass-rushing controls, while Allen is included in the segment highlighting the game’s latest user-controlled player celebrations.
