Some Madden NFL 21 Next-Gen Stadiums Have Some Serious Lighting Issues - Team is Aware and Working on a Fix

Some users in the OS Madden Forums have noticed some serious lighting issues in Madden NFL 21 next-gen stadiums. More specifically, FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns.

Users are claiming the stadium is just too bright, specifically during night games, but even more obvious in the snow. Just check out the screenshots captured below.

The first 2 screenshots are taken at night, the third in the snow. We just threw in the 4th screenshot to compare a standard 1:00 PM game.

While we haven’t tested out all of the stadiums, the Madden team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. If you are noticing anything specific in next-gen Madden NFL 21 stadiums, let us know.

    Seems to be just this stadium on Madden on the PS5. Play a night game in Play Now and the lighting is incredibly bright. All the other stadiums seem fine. Add snow in and its even worse. Can anyone else check and confirm its not just me!

    It’s not just you, same thing happened to me in a night rain game. Think the stadium is bugged for some reason, I’ve read others with the same complaint.

    Just got my ps5 and as a browns fan I am disapointed to hear this. Haven't even opened the console box yet. Does this only effect night games with weather or all night games at first energy?

    All night games sadly. I want to start a Browns Franchise but it's unplayable practically with how it is. Snow makes it worse, the colours look odd.
    Hey sadler, just a heads up that I tagged your post to the homepage and added some screenshots for a little more exposure.
    Glad the team is aware, hopefully you guys won't have to wait long.
    Because I am a nerd I tried every combination of weather and night games, both 6:30 and 8:15 and the issues is there no matter what. I even tried playing with brightness and contrast in the Accessibilty panel and it just makes it worse.  the lighting issues is everywhere even all of Lake Erie! As the camera pans across the lake toward the stadium during timeouts it just looks like every surface is globally illuminated by some source....maybe an accidental mix of overcast lighting and stadium lighting? I dunno. I'd just love to see it fixed ASAP cause the Browns just got week 16 flexed to Sunday Night Football against the Giants. So 2 of their last 4 games are at night and I want to be playing these! Thanks for all the hard work guys. Glad to hear EA is on top of it and just hoping this can be patched quickly.
    While they are at it, can they look into making the Steelers field more dark green? It's to light and has been for years. In person it looks more like Seattle's green. If you play on over cast then it's close but it should look like that no matter what the time of day or cloud cover is. Thank you.

    Yes, I agree. Feels like none of the playing surfaces look like their real life counter parts imo, this gen, last gen, the one before that. I was hoping next gen would do a better job of replicating this. I mean the fifa fields put the Madden fields to shame. I know it's a minor detail to most & I'm sure most of the competitive crowd doesn't care if they're playing on asphalt. Just one of those things that drives me nuts.
