Madden NFL 21 Patch Available-Includes Gameplay Tuning, New Superstar Abilities, New X Factor Player, and more-Patch Notes

An update for the new Madden NFL 21 game has arrived today. This includes gameplay updates, 4 new superstar abilities, 3 new X-Factor players, 12 new superstar players, and improved avatar customization UI.

Check out the patch notes below.

Gameplay updates:

  • Fixed an issue where the ball speed did not always reach the desired speed in some certain QB transit animations
  • Tuning to improve the response of the deep zone defender to the crossing route from the single receiver side of the highly rated defender
  • Tuning to slow down the cut reaction time of a one-to-one defense linebacker facing the other side of the QB
  • Fixed runblock targeting issue in Gun Wing Flex Week Inside Zone Play
  • Fixed a rare issue where the QB seemed to be using a path under pressure when it wasn’t actually under pressure
  • New Superstar Abilities and Superstar X Factor updates based on NFL player performance up to this point in the 2020 NFL season
  • Fixed an issue where one-to-one defense vs. “block and release” RB defenders could immediately switch their assignments to electric shock when they saw the RB start blocking, leaving the RB uncovered after subsequent routes. Did.

Newly added superstar abilities:

  • Film research – Defenders with this ability have a complete vision of play in which attacks were carried out five times a quarter. Via coach cam.
    • Developer Note: Based on the feedback we received from Madden 21 Beta, we’ve reworked this feature to provide more balance across multiple game modes. One of those tweaks is based on what the player said was too easy and too powerful to activate. Correspondingly, this ability must repeat a variable number of aggressive playcalls before it can be activated. This number is scaled up or down based on the current quarter and game quarter length settings, and the required amount is always displayed via X-Factor Vision before play. In addition, the defender’s knowledge of these repeated plays disappears at the end of the quarter, giving the attack a little more room in how to make play calls.
  • Backlash – Ball carriers with this ability will feel more tired of the tackler when tackling with a non-conservative tackle.
  • Recuperation – Players with this ability will recover from the effects of fatigue at an increasing rate between plays.
  • Honor lineman – Non-aggressive linemen with this ability often get impact blocks when blocking defensive backs in the open field.
