The sounds of Madden NFL 17 come from an unusual source

Fans of EA’s Madden games would be forgiven for thinking that the game’s audio was recorded at an actual NFL match inside a huge stadium in the US.

It turns out that for this year’s game, a lot of the audio came from an unlikely source: Tupperware bashed to bits in the Scottish countryside.

Will Morton and Craig Conner left Rockstar North back in 2014 to to set up their own company, Solid Audioworks. Morton worked at Rockstar North for 12 years as a dialogue supervisor and senior audio designer. Conner was the music director at Rockstar North. He scored nearly 20 years at the company, composing the soundtrack for the original Grand Theft Auto in 1997.
