Madden NFL 22 The Yard, Player Classes, Superstar KO Gridiron Notes

The latest Gridiron Notes go over the new features coming to Madden NFL 22 The Yard, player classes and Superstar KO. Below are some of the bullets highlighting what’s new.

  • Player Classes – Classes play a huge role in Madden NFL 22. Class Progression carries over between The Yard and Face of the Franchise this year, meaning all of the work you put in on the field in either mode carries over to the other.
  • Unified Progression – Class Progression in Madden NFL 22 is completely unified. There are many classes that are shared between Face of the Franchise and The Yard. Each of these shared classes can be leveled up in either mode, allowing you to bring your power to wherever you want to play. This shared experience also includes Superstar X-Factor abilities. Unlock an ability inside of Face of the Franchise and it can also be used in The Yard, and vice versa.
  • The Yard: The Yard is back with a new challenge-based Solo or Co-Op campaign. You can now visit new fields located across the world, battle boss characters with unmatched NFL talents, and unlock gear for your avatar.
  • Campaign: The Yard Campaign is divided up into four different chapters, each with its own set of venues and games. Defeating a boss at each location will let you unlock your next set of venues.
  • Player Recruitment: New and exclusive to The Yard Campaign in Madden 22 is the ability to not only face off against the highest-profile superstar bosses from the NFL, but to recruit them to your squad for use in future games.
  • Venue Rewards: Performing well, winning games, and knocking out certain stat goals will allow you to unlock rewards after every game. From CRED to REP, to a whole host of unique gear, the Campaign will always ensure each win feels sweet. Every venue has an exclusive gear set that you can earn as you win each game.
  • Perfection Reward: Perfectionists of the Campaign will get a unique set of rewards all their own. At every venue, if you can knock out EVERY objective, at EVERY game that spot has to offer, you’ll earn an exclusive gear reward that is undeniable proof of your absolute domination at that location.
  • Live Events: Superstar clash is the first Live Event of the year, it features a 5 game gauntlet against Pro Bowl competition. Games are played on the brand new London field. Throughout the year we will be adding new Live Events that sync up with real-world NFL events. This will include exciting brand partnerships…
  • Superstar KO: Superstar KO is back again in Madden NFL 22. You’ll be able to play quick games in unique stadiums with icons of football culture. Authentic NFL teams, various stadiums, and rosters will also be available for the first time.
  • Game Modes: NFL teams are in Superstar KO! One of the big additions to Superstar KO is the ability to play as authentic NFL teams. You’ll be able to choose which NFL team you want to play as, which playbooks you want to use for offense and defense, and the option to play 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3. You also have the ability to use the play-a-friend feature. These NFL teams will also update with our roster updates throughout the year.

    I probably won't really touch any of this, but the new venues all look pretty for the most part.

    I'm curious for more info on the addition on using current NFL teams on K.O. & how it all plays out.

    If they are finally letting us play KO with full rosters, full quarters, and uniforms that don't look like baby vomit then maybe I'll finally forgive them for stealing Draft Champions.

    They didn't specify next gen/current gen on anything they talked about from what I remember.

    Yep. This is the part that determines if I buy the game or not. So far it's looking like a yes, but I'll have to see the details of this. It's the single most important feature to me, and I've been wanting it for years.

    Honestly, I truly wonder what percentage of the population actually play these game modes and what percentage actually enjoy it.
    If you get enjoyment out of this, then power to you but for me personally, this is a hard pass.

    KO is useful for learning how the Xfactor work in a live game. They can be a major PITA to activate normally in some cases. I've playing like 130+ online games with the Bills and I've triggered Diggs' ability less than 5x

    Maybe that's what I am missing out on. I finally found an all madden setting that gives me challenging games but in order to do that, I have to turn off X Factors
