EA Madden 21 Update 1.25 Patch Notes

PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

GAMEPLAY UPDATES:

  • Fixed an issue causing the QB to freeze after flipping Gun Split Close Play Action plays while also hot routing the HB.
  • Fixed an issue causing some QB’s to repeat their pre-play walk-to-line, getting set in the formation animation twice.
  • Fixed an issue preventing some abilities from being equipped for players on the Pro Bowl roster.
  • Fixed an incorrect route shown in the play-art for the play Gun Tight Doubles Zig Under.
  • Fixed an issue sometimes causing the receiver to run back toward the line instead of breaking out when running a zig route.
  • Fixed an issue with Hit Sticks not tracking properly for Abilities using Hit Stick accumulation for In the Zone criteria (e.g. Avalanche)

MADDEN ULTIMATE TEAM UPDATES

  • Various UI Fixes

FRANCHISE UPDATES

  • NEW: Improvements to Trade Logic and Player Value

  • Fixed issue where “Backlash” ability was called “Pass Lead Elite”
  • Fixed naming of Seahawks stadium to Lumen Field (for new Franchises)

GAMEPLAY UPDATES

  • Fixed an issue allowing punts to frequently get blocked by an AI-controlled rusher when lined up inside the 5-yard line.
    • Dev Note: To address this issue, we tuned the logic of the rusher that was blocking the kick. The AI was timing the Dive perfectly and not in a situation where the player rushing the punter would layout and dive due to the blocker between him and the punter.
  • Fixed an issue causing the QB to freeze after flipping Gun Split Close Play Action plays while also hot routing the HB.
  • Fixed an issue causing some QB’s to repeat their pre-play walk-to-line, getting set in the formation animation twice.
  • Fixed an issue preventing some abilities from being equipped for players on the Pro Bowl roster.
  • Fixed an issue with Hit Sticks not tracking properly for Abilities using Hit Stick accumulation for In the Zone criteria (e.g. Avalanche)

  1. Will the QB vision come back to madden? Throwing the ball with the proper trajectory and ball placement & attacking the field needs to be added to the game drastically..
