Gameplay Updates

  • Added logic to prevent ‘Pressure Inaccurate’ throws vs. Run Commit defense. DEV NOTE: This will NOT impact ‘Quick Throw Inaccurate’ passes, as that is in place to prevent exploits around throwing to receivers who are not realistically expecting the ball so early in their route.
  • Added ‘Out of Position’ fumble penalty to wide receivers playing running back
    Fixed an issue causing the wrong snap receiver when using audibles in the Saints Taysom Hill Slot formation.
  • Fixed an issue sometimes causing shovel pass animations to release from the wrong hand.

Ultimate Team Update

Added new functionality with Playcall Cooldowns & Limits.

DEV NOTE: This feature will be introduced via House Rules. Madden Ultimate Team now has the ability to configure a playcall cooldown or limit. After selecting a play with cooldowns, that play will not be selectable again until X amount of plays have been run. With limits, a play will have a configured number of how many total times that play can be called for the rest of the game. Cooldowns and limits can be combined together.
