And with this year’s installment, again comes slight refinements that are sure to make the game mode that much more exciting. Here is everything we learned about Madden Ultimate Team from yesterday’s Madden 20 update.
It will also show users the path in which they must take to earn said reward. For instance, if you need to acquire a specific amount of trophies using a variety of different game modes, it will link you to each mode with your objective. Again, this is all to help streamline the experience for the user and make it easy to find exactly what it is you’re looking for.
Ultimate Challenges And Rewards
For each star you obtain, they will then be used to purchase “milestones” items. The more stars you accumulate, the better rewards you receive. There are also “bonus” stars that can be acquired. This means a total of five stars can be earned, but in doing so you will need to complete each challenge on the highest difficulty.
This gives users the ability to earn more variety of rewards in multiple different ways. This seems like a healthy alternative to solo missions, and something all fans should be intrigued by.
Superstar Abilities, Player Archetypes, And Faster loading
We all know that EA has added superstar abilities to this year’s game, and those will translate to MUT. Some superstar abilities will make the transition from ’19 into ’20. But for the most part, these abilities will be re-imagined. And players will play as close to their real counterparts as possible.
Last, and obviously not least, is the introduction to player archetypes in Ultimate Team this year. These will again be player specific. However, a quarterback like Philip Rivers, who isn’t the fastest or most elusive QB, will not have the “escapability” trait. Running backs may be better at running outside than others, and quarterbacks who can throw more accurately on the run will have those abilities. It’s just another step in making EA as true to the NFL as possible.
Lastly, EA plans to implement even more in the “house rules” feature that first appeared in Madden 19. This is something we will have to monitor as we get closer to the game’s release.
