To ensure Madden is the best game possible, scheduled updates are deployed by the Madden Development Team to add features to the game after launch and to tune gameplay based on community feedback. Our launch updates focus on many of the issues that Madden players report to us. We thank you for your feedback - you've helped us improve Madden NFL 20. We look forward to further feedback and are committed to continuing to meet your expectations.

Here is a detailed breakdown of what’s included in today's title update.

Key Highlights
DEV NOTE: Today’s title update is very small and focused on very specific stability and usability issues. There are no gameplay, presentation or PC updates in this title update, but there are title updates in the works to address some of our player’s feedback in those areas in the near future.

Global Updates
  • General stability, performance & connectivity improvements and fixes
  • Reduced the chances of encountering a disconnect from online games when transitioning into gameplay. Additional fixes remain under investigation for future title updates.

Franchise Updates
  • Fixed an issue causing more than one overtime to occur in regular season games when using the ‘Play the Moment’ feature
  • Fixed an issue causing the game to enter a state where it would not end when failing an objective on a fourth down during the last play of the game
  • Fixed an issue causing the game to enter a state where it would not end when the clock expired during a safety by the CPU when playing either Face of the Franchise: QB1 or Player-locked Franchise
  • Fixed an issue causing a soft-lock on the Weekly Game Boosts screen after running only one play before the quarter break when using Supersim
  • Broncos defensive playbook has been updated to reflect new Broncos Head Coach Vic Fangio
  • Fixed an issue sometimes preventing the college overtime rules from being honored in Face of the Franchise: QB1

Madden Ultimate Team Updates
  • Added a popup when exiting the lineup screen whenever you have a player with X-Factor or Superstar Abilities and available slot in the ‘Activate Superstar X-Factor’ menu.
    • DEV NOTE: We are noticing a lot of players are equipping X-Factors and Superstar Abilities but not going the extra step to “Activate” them. As a reminder, you can only choose 3 players from offense and 3 players from defense and only those 6 players will carry X-Factors and Superstar Abilities into the games you play. Nobody else on the lineup will have either X-Factors or Superstar Abilities brought into game unless they are activated. We have some additional support coming to make this even more clear but for now this popup will serve as a reminder to go activate your players.
  • Fixed an issue causing the X-Factor and Superstar Abilities to lose functionality when restarting or using the ‘Play Next Challenge’ feature
  • Fixed an issue preventing the proper values from displaying when attempting to equip a chemistry associated with both a positive and negative value
  • Fixed an issue preventing users from linking Wildcards already in a set to the Auction House
  • Improved performance of the ‘Play’ tab on the MUT menu

    Can you add mouth guards? It makes it more realistic gameplay.

    Also can you add more injuries because I hit cam newton and he fell on his neck and he wasn’t injured at all.
  • Love the face of the franchise. It's a little easy to level up, so I had to increase the difficulty and the sliders but really enjoying being QB for John Gruden. Can you guys give us a list of names that the game will pronounce as we play a few years into the game? stinks not haveing guys names being said when they score, or get a long run or a sack or anything.

    Sorry about that, we are working towards a fix currently. Here is how agent K managed to get around the issue while waiting on a fix:

  • Fix the development fog of war never clearing or reverting back to fogged from revealed.

    Hey, is this update includes the addition of free agents like Jay Ajayi or Michael Crabtree? Or it only fix the mentioned issues?

    Don't feel bad I'm sick of seeing someone using the pinch buck blitz it just cost me two games in a row in the redzone cuz other player is abusing the same plays over and over it's pathetic and it's really bad it's making EA look bad the way they're letting players abuse the same plays over and over and cheat with that lurking garbage cuz no linebacker covers that much field even in the NFL no linebacker covers that much field

    Y’all need to fix the kick meter glitch. From the six games I be played with my friend online five of them had the glitch where the kick meter never showed up. Because of it I won four games, but It’s very annoying to deal with because it also happens to me. I’m on xbox

    Please do something about tyreek hill. I can set my safety deep and put them.both on him In head to head and he is still completely open every single time.
  • Is there an update with more face scans coming soon? Any chance we will get the ability to completely customize superstar and x-factor abilities and any chance you'd tell us? Thanks.
  • Can you guys please add back camera angle where you’re zoomed in behind your LB, DE when playing as just a player in franchise.
  • It seems like the disconnects are solved, however...

    Still seeing random cards at the beginning, often times with cards mixed in that both sides couldn't be mine.

    Still have people using the Cowboys dark jerseys as their "away" jersey, so when I'm home and using the Colts jersey it's pretty hard to differentiate who's who if I'm making quick decisions. Super annoying -- this has been an issue every year I can remember.

    Weekly rewards still include Solo Battles -- are they returning this week at all?

    I doubt you'll do this since cards are dished out already, but maybe when you can trade in captains for others you should lower Shazier's speed -- he's faster than most receivers, it's ridiculous and allows user LBs to cheat the run and still recover to undercut routes even when I'm making the right read by attacking that person's zone or man.

  • Please fix the hidden dev trait glitch where downs played resets to 0 over and over again preventing dev trait from being revealed. Very frustrating when trying to develop rookies. Will this be on next patch?
  • There is a glitch that isnt allowing hidden dev trait players to accumulate snaps. Making it almost impossible to develop rookies in franchise mode. When will this glitch be fixed?

    Dont go messing with that, what they need to do is make sure WRs are not dropping easy balls once you beat cheese defense. Once the offense is stronger it will force corny players to change strategy. Most of my issues are about the core gameplay. Like WRs dropping to many balls, Hit stick distance, Hit Stick response should be as soon as you do it. That will stop people from just hitting the hit stick all day. Since the hit stick has so much force I think the player should fall if he misses. QBs not being able to throw the ball even when you press the button. Alot of response times are off.
  • Please fix the "Downs Played" feature in Franchise Mode. Downs aren't accumulating every game and often reset every game. So the "Hidden" Abilities will never unlock...
  • i dont know if this has happened to anyone else but i finished the Superstars challenges and i was rewarded NAT 89 OVR Harrison Smith and i just completed the House rules Event and was also rewarded Harrison Smith NAT 89 OVR. there is really nothing i can do with this card other than quick sell it for a low amount of training.
