Madden NFL 21 it includes its share of features for next-generation consoles, and EA seems to be doing even more for the sequel. The editor is liberating Madden NFL 22 on August 20 with a string of “Dynamic Gameday” features exclusive to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X./S. The atmosphere of the stadium, the impetus on the field and even the advantages of the home field will change only if you have one of the newer systems. Even the AI is more refined on these consoles – it mimics the trends of the player and the team that change with the statistics.
The game will always be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC gamers (included in Stage).
You will always have new experiences no matter which platform you use. A new one-player mode, The Yard, includes a new campaign and a progression system that shares your achievements with the Face of the Franchise mode. Which, in turn, introduces a new story, a new player class system, and the option to play as a defender. Meanwhile, the Superstar KO multiplayer mode will allow you to play real NFL teams. Madden Ultimate Team will also introduce the next-generation statistical system and half-day updates to the “X-Factors” of the major players.
The focus change is clear: previous consoles are on the way out. Madden NFL 22 it’s only more worth it if you have a PS5 or Xbox Series console. Even if it’s not necessarily the end for the latest generation hardware, we don’t bet the money NFL 23 reaching out to older platforms.
