Changes are coming to the well-worn mode.
The latest entry in the annual football series is here with Madden NFL 21, and well, the reception is what it is, I suppose. The game has been criticized for being an even more barebones effort than usual outside a few key exceptions, though some still found enjoyment in it. You can see our take on that through here. But EA has promised some changes would be coming, specifically to the Franchise mode. Now they’ve detailed what to expect.
In a post from the publisher, they broke down what they plan to add to the mode. It may not be exactly the overhaul some want, but you will be able to customize X-Factor and Superstar abilities as well as edit players in both offline and online modes. It will also return the ability to see important stats for other players, such as what team they played throughout their career, as well as tuning development trait regression to help keep players balanced.
Madden NFL 21 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The update will come in November, most likely in time for the game’s release on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
