    The real question is, which version of the game is hitting the vault?* Will we be getting the XSX/PS5 version if on that console?

    Given their initial PR doesn't make a distinction between the titles, good presumption to expect all versions of 21.
    Interesting. I wonder if the 3rd and final of the 3 franchise patches will release on or near that date.
    They did say the 3rd franchise patch would hit sometime in March 2021. It would be nice coincided.
    Well the patches and the game will finally be complete lol better late than never lol I never bought it anyway lol i get it free every year and sell the copy if it sucks, and eventually get it again free or at a very very huge discount like 8.00 on a digital version.. not a shared account version like drippin games etc but an actual real copy for 8.00 but as usual it becomes free on ea play lol
    Yeah its on Ps5 I just played it for the first time. Im shocked because I enjoyed it way more than the ps4 version and even more than I expected.

    So when I download it for PS5 and go into it, it still says trial, won't connect to the servers, etc. I even deleted and re-downloaded it. Any advice?
    Same here. I got my PS5 on Saturday and they had an offer of EA Play for .99 for a month so I bought that to try out Madden. Downloaded the trial version only to find it couldn't connect to servers. Did some searching and the trial version has been broken for months apparently. And I can't find a way to force it to download the full version and not the trial.

    I saw someone in the PS5 forum had a similar problem and I think his solution was to just let the 10 hour time trial clock run out. After that, he was then able to download the full game version and was then able to play it. Perhaps this will still work?
    On next gen dont download trial version or it wont work. You have to search Madden 21, not click thumbnail. Then buy Full (not trial) Ps4 and Ps5 version, then at checkout it will say purchase for $0.00.

    This worked! Got it to switch over by "buying" the full version.
