Some Madden NFL 20 Features Revealed, Career Campaign Includes 10 Schools Available in the College Football Playoff

Some Madden NFL 20 features were revealed today, including a new Face of the Franchise: QB1 career campaign. It’s basically a career campaign centered around you as the quarterback.

There are 10 Division 1 schools available to select in the College Football Playoff portion of the campaign. Here’s some details from the official blog.

First, you choose between ten Division 1 schools. From there you will fill in details about your quarterback and make decisions about what type of quarterback you will be. Up next, you will be competing in the College Football Playoff. You will play up to two full games and your performance will impact your draft stock. Once you play through the College Football Playoff, you will then start the process of the NFL Combine.

As a quarterback prospect, you’ll be asked a couple of questions by NFL coaches and then throw passes to receivers at the combine. After you finish this process, you’ll then wait to find out where you will be drafted in the league. All the decisions you made, and your on-field performance will dictate where you will land on draft day. Once drafted you’ll start your NFL career. At this point, you will start your typical Franchise experience, but your quarterback will be unique to the Face of the Franchise: QB1 experience.

The blog also gives us a glimpse at Superstar X-Factors.

In total there will be around 50 Superstar X-Factor players and over 30 additional Superstar players. The difference between the two are the Zone abilities and Superstar abilities. Zone abilities are best described as once-a-season moments that only the league’s best can pull off, while Superstar abilities are traits that are unique to some of the most talented players that you see each and every game.

In total there are over 20 Zone abilities for the 50 Superstar X-Factor players and over 140 Superstar abilities. Each game you will see and feel the difference because of these special traits.

Many more details on the Madden NFL 20 modes will be revealed in the upcoming Twitch Streams with the developers.

Madden NFL 20 will release for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 2. Fans that pre-order the Superstar Edition ($79.99) or Ultimate Superstar Edition ($99.99) will get it 3 days earlier, on July 30.

    Hopefully there is alot more to the descriptions. Franchise from that part of description doesn't seem any different.

    "Forge your legacy as player, coach, or owner in Franchise mode featuring the all-new Scenario Engine."
    Clearly I know nothing about this, but from first glance this sounds like a dumb addition to a mode in need of other things.
    Take the journey of an NFL superstar. Create a college quarterback and dominate the College Football Playoff, then impress the scouts at the NFL Combine. Find out where your story begins at the NFL Draft, and then fight to prove you belong in the league. Last long enough and you just might leave a legacy and even play in a few Pro Bowls. This new and customizable career campaign is all about you, with personalized playable scenarios, events, and dynamic challenges. The choices you make early on will affect how your career pans out!
    After all our feedback. From casual to sim players. Barely any mention of franchise mode... they really don’t give a crap about it do they
    EDIT: NVM NEW FEATURES SOUND DOPE CANT WAIT

    Wonder if you can play offense and defense or just as the one player? I’d just play the college football playoff over and over

    From what I read, no. The whole pre-NFL experience is for QBs only. Pretty much it just to NFL then transitions to CFM. So if you want to do a non-QB it pretty much like current player CFM

    Wow, slow down
    Nothing like jumping the start on this one. Normally the real in-depth information doesn't even leak out this soon
    Kind of disappointed that with choice of 10 NCAA teams, we would only play 2 games in college. I would love to use the teams in exhibition., but I see 100% chance that will not happen. I wonder how in depth the teams are. Will they have the team playbooks or generic spread playbook.
    Even though it's only 10 schools and probably only playable in career mode, it is pretty cool to see college teams back in a EA Sports videogame for the first time in 6 years

    Interesting change of strategy considering how late everything came out last year.

    I agree. it makes a lot of sense to start promoting the game at the draft because of publicity. It made the 1.5 wait before draft fly by.
    My thing is that whats going to happen in June and July. Pretty much all the info will be released in May. So besides EA Play, it won't be good to not have anything until release. The hype will die down if nothing substantial will release in the remaining 2 months.

    I’m guessing they will maybe have something presentation wise saved for EA Play or something with Real Player Motion or weather? Idk, but I’m sure they have something saved for EA Play.

    So basically they just added playing two college football games and a scouting combine to a mode they already have, and can't even pick position. EA is a joke.

    Not to mention that's when the content creators will start coming out with gameplay. We're likely to see somewhat of a Beta process like last year. I took it seriously and I think everyone here who had a beta code did and provided decent feedback that ultimately helped Madden 19 in some fashion. Still plenty for June and July.

    Looks like NFL rules in the college game. Not NCAA rules, Should be kicking of from 40.

    Unless the NCAA changed the rule for 2019 and I didn't hear about it, they kickoff from the 35 just like the NFL.

    Disregard my post, I dont know why I thought they kicked from 40.

    I mean Atleast check some more articles before lashing out and calling them a joke man.
    You can pick your position for starters.. (granted you might lose some narrative?)
    Give me NCAAF! Randomize the rosters based on program success the last 5 years. No roster editing or sharing to keep away from lawsuits for now. But you can edit a teams prestige level that it generates the team from.
    Online head to head let's you generate rostere in a quick system where each players team is created from an outline done before hand. Your given points and get to spend them on each position group until your out.
    Franchise Online is done using the rosters from the franchise creator.
    NCAA FUT is done using former players.
    Draft classes can be imported into Madden.

    Can you only play QB for the superstar mode???

    From what I read. You can choose other positions. You just lose Pre-NFL experience. Which sucks. I can even deal without the combine. It would have been nice to play the college games and do the draft experience.
    This has me excited only for the fact that this could be a trial for a new NCAA game. I'm not really interested in Madden, but I might buy this one just so they know the NCAA stuff is appreciated.

    I thought the same thing for college hoops when 2k let you play college games in MyCareer a few years ago. Sadly nothing came of that
    It would be pretty dope if they let us play with college teams in exhibition. They did all of this, why not just make a separate game? If they are not able to get all the teams, why not make a college game with just 30 to 40 teams like the sega genesis days?

    That would be great. But I highly doubt it. They don't want to push the envelope with it. I doubt how in depth they were with the teams. I think they might use generic playbooks.
    I would be more than ok to use the generic playbooks and the College Playoff stadium. But I highly doubt that they allow it.

    In pc it will be available cause the mods with team uniforms etc but I sure the stadiums and crowd will be a nfl ones so not much NCAA immersion

    why should i have to play a qb? i always prefer defence especially FS or MLBer, but in coach mode as im now retired and arthritic

    You can play as any position, but if you play as a QB you get the College Playoffs, Combine, and draft stuff.

    Hmm. I wish more is added because if it's just two college games and the combine. Then just the same Player Lock franchise we have been getting for years now, would be kind of disappointing. Madden 06's Superstar mode was a good base to build from wish they did more with that. I don't know though I can never see Madden's career mode taking of like NBA 2k's because there is no online play. But I don't know how they would do that. Maybe like a 7 on 7 NFL Street like thing but I can see that being a disaster.

    Another great idea, to have all 22 players controlled by users. It something that they might be working on for next generation

    Seriously man? They have barely released any info about the mode. You’re judging it based on nothing more than a blurb
