Madden NFL Overdrive introduces real-time Player vs. Player (PVP), an all new way to play the game where you’ll go head to head with rivals and adjust your strategy on the fly. It’s a quick offensive blitz, where fantasy scoring allows you to rack up points and earn packs faster than ever to dominate your opponent. The game will also look and feel better than ever before as it runs on an all-new engine which unlocks the ability to deliver real-time physics and broadcast-style presentation. Lastly, players can fuel their game by collecting Coaches and Captains to improve play executions, leverage unique Tactics and boost Overdrive, the lifeblood of the game used to turn the tide in real-time PVP.

A New Way To Play
Madden NFL Overdrive transforms the way you play the game with the introduction of Player vs. Player (PvP). These are quick-hitting, fierce offensive battles with one simple goal – outscore your opponent.
You’ll earn Fantasy-like scores, meaning you get points for everything you do on the field. From every rushing and passing yard to each touchdown, all of it adds to your score. There are no kickoffs, just short drives for big points. This fresh take real-time, PvP experience is the heart of Madden NFL Overdrive.
While there are a lot of exciting changes coming to Madden NFL Overdrive, you’ll still find some of your favorite modes, like Live Events, the return of NFL 24/7, and our tried-and-true Leagues. These experiences will all be elevated by everything you do in PvP. You’ll earn fans, increase your XP, and rank up for rewards that can be redeemed in each of those game modes.
So why the name Overdrive? Well, there will be a new Overdrive meter that will fill up as you play a match. As your meter fills you’ll unlock Tactics, which can provide boosts for your offense or defensive challenges to your opponent.
Several things factor into how quickly your Overdrive meter fills. There are four classes in the game that determine some of the stats and playstyles of players like vertical, spread, etc. Having a lineup of players with the same class boosts your team chemistry and can also impact your Overdrive. Your Captain, the leader of your team as well as your Coach, also factors into how quickly your Overdrive meter fills during a Vs match.
Each Captain has a specific scoring bonus. For example, you might have a QB Captain who gives a bonus if he throws for 200 yards in a match. Coaches determine your playbook and the Overdrive Tactics available to you.
