Hey Madden NFL fans,

We're on the eve of the next generation of Madden NFL with the worldwide launch of Madden NFL 21 on Xbox Series X\S and PlayStation5 on December 4. Dual Entitlement players will be able to access portions of the game as early as today, so we want to be sure you're aware of the latest status and how to get your upgrade.

The PlayStation 5 version of the game is not yet connected to the servers as we’re doing final testing on a problem for which we’ve submitted a solution. We will provide updates this evening on its deployment as we head into launch, but the game can be played offline in the meantime.

How Do I Get It? Madden NFL 21 can be downloaded on next gen consoles for players who have purchased the game on Xbox One and/or PlayStation 4. Starting now players can upgrade their copies of the game to start playing on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 offline. For those players who purchased a physical copy of Madden NFL 21 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and upgraded to a discless next generation console, you will need to Contact EA Help to validate your purchase using your account information to receive your free upgrade.
