Madden NFL 22 Update Revealed
A few new features in Madden 22 include Fieldsense and X-Factor abilities. The QB breakouts are now more modular, and College teams are included in the Campus Legends event. Other changes include weekly results and other tweaks. If you’re interested in learning more about the game’s new features, read on! This article will go over the most important additions and changes in the latest Madden update. So what’s new?
Fieldsense is a new feature in Madden 22
One new skill-based passing mechanic in Madden 22 is Fieldsense. It allows quarterbacks to deliver passes to specific locations. After dropping back, players simply press the receiver button and a small circle with a targeting reticle appears. With a flick of the right stick, players can place the ball within the circle or out of it. This new feature was developed with player-locked modes in mind.
The gameplay mechanic is completely different, thanks to the introduction of FieldSENSE. The new system removes predetermined dice rolls and allows players to use more precise movements to attack their targets. Those who want to dominate the opposing team’s quarterback should prepare for this change. The new system is set to release on August 19 for PCs and Xbox Series XS.

Another major change is the introduction of 360 cuts and skill-based passing. This new feature makes the game even more realistic. Players can now make 360 cuts, changing direction in mid-air, and evading tackles. The new mechanics have been tweaked to make them more dynamic and challenging for players. Whether you’re trying to make a touchdown or just try to make your way through the defense, these new features will make it easier for you to score.
The FileSENSE system determines if a collision should lead to a fall or a stumble. It can cause a defender to miss a tackle attempt and trip a teammate. A player can also knock a teammate out of an ongoing tackle by hitting them at the wrong angle. The FileSENSE system allows for more dynamic moments and offers players more control over the game.
Players can also change the flow of a drive downfield using stand-up tackles. The stand-up tackle requires the player to press a button several times in order to win the play. The number of button presses required will depend on the matchup between players. For instance, a huge linebacker smothering a scrawny wide receiver might require only one input, while a lithe speed demon may need five.
X-Factor abilities are adjusted
The new Madden update for NFL 19 features interesting edits to X-Factor abilities. Ball carriers with Protective Custody no longer fumble. Mossed players will now win contested catches irrespective of coverage. Last Chance players will now enter free agency on the following day. EA confirmed that this will be the first of two franchise mode upgrades, with the second set to arrive next month.
X-Factor abilities are altered on six players. Among them are the Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb, who replaces Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Chubb boasts a Freight Train X-Factor, the Arm Bar Superstar ability, and the Bulldozer animation. Besides this, the developers have also tweaked a few other gameplay mechanics and added bug fixes. In Madden update, the developers have added new logic to prevent pressure-incorrect throws, new penalties, including the “Out of Position” fumble penalty, and fixes to shovel pass animations and audibles.
The new X-Factor abilities will affect players’ performance during the NFL regular season. The new Superstar X-Factor update will affect players in the Front End rosters of online head-to-head games and exhibition leagues. The Superstar X-Factor reshuffle will not affect existing Franchise leagues or new leagues created using the Pre-Season Roster option.
Using the X-Factor ability will increase the success rate of run plays. The best way to get a 10+ yard play is to run the ball up the gut, while using the X-Factor ability will increase your chances of breaking free. In franchise mode, running backs should choose First One Free because their first move is more effective and can lead to an endzone payoff.
In addition, a wide receiver or receiving running back who can beat defenses with the ball should use YAC ‘Em Up. This ability allows a receiver to gain more yards after the catch. This new skill can be useful for receivers or elusive running backs. You will need to play multiple Face of the Franchise mode playthroughs to unlock the full potential of each position.
QB breakouts are more modular in Madden 22
In Madden NFL 22, a new system aimed at balancing QB value and authenticity has been added to the game. Teams will now know the value of a top QB and may be willing to spend a significant amount of money to secure him. In addition, the values of non-quarterback elites have also been increased in the game in response to community feedback. The game now measures player value beyond OVR.
As for Madden NFL 22, the March 10 patch update brings a variety of improvements and bug fixes to the game. The new Franchise modes feature new scenarios and NFL Live Playbooks, as well as gameplay improvements and bug fixes. The new Franchise scenarios include Trench Boost, Immovable Object, Under Siege, and QB Breakouts. All of these scenarios have the potential to be very challenging and are ideal for the new NFL Live franchise mode.
College teams are included in Campus Legends event
For those of you who play Madden NFL, the latest Campus Legends update has some good news. It features 10 new college teams, as well as more than 100 playable players. If you’re like me, you’re curious about which players and teams are playable, so I’ve compiled a list of those to keep an eye out for. In addition to new college teams, Campus Legends also offers the chance to play as legendary players from past Madden games. The new rosters are impressive, and many former NFL stars are represented. For example, the Clemson Tigers, with Trevor Lawrence at QB, are filled with top-notch receivers, while the Texas Longhorns boast a dazzling running back corps.
Another new feature is the inclusion of collegiate football legends. The new Madden update will feature ten college teams, including Michigan State and Alabama. The update will also include the Ohio State Buckeyes and the USC Trojans. These new rosters will allow fans to pit some of the greatest players from each of these programs against each other. It’s a great way to get a taste of college football’s rich history.
The new Campus Legends mode is a monthly event, and it’s aimed at giving Madden fans a taste of college football. It’s an expanded four-quarter game with college football rules, including down when you catch the ball, and down when you’re touched. There’s also an overtime mode that follows the NFL’s rules. Campus Legends is the newest Madden update, and it may even be a limited-time event, so be sure to sign up for a beta version if you want to experience it.
In addition to adding the aforementioned teams, the Campus Legends game mode has been a huge hit with Madden fans. EA Sports didn’t add the entire roster of colleges immediately, but they did add them over time. Alabama and Ohio State weren’t included in the first Madden update, and it took a while for them to join the game. In addition to this, the College Legends mode has recently added new legends, as well as a brand-new mode that lets you play as a legendary player.
