In the final playbook for Madden NFL 13 EA Sports sheds light on the changes coming to the game’s Ultimate Team mode plus the new NFL Gridiron Club.
New Cards and New Ways to Enhance Your Collection
When gamers begin Madden Ultimate Team, they can select a star player to serve as their team captain and will be given that player’s training camp card. Those who downloaded cards featuring the first round picks of the 2012 NFL Draft will also be able to carry those rookies over into this year’s edition of Madden Ultimate Team. Rookie cards will be updated throughout the season to reflect the real-life performance of this year’s brightest prospects. In addition, the auction process has also been completely overhauled to give users more freedom when buying and selling cards.
Solo Challenges and Legends in Connected Careers
New to this year’s edition of Madden Ultimate Team is the inclusion of Solo Challenges, single-player matchups that require players to use all their skills in order to succeed. Fans will be able to challenge current NFL teams, as well as a highlighted Team of the Week based on each week’s biggest stories and top performers. Replicate an amazing performance by Aaron Rodgers or try and stop Madden NFL 13 cover athlete Calvin Johnson, Jr. from running wild on your secondary. Ultimately, Solo Challenges will provide a wealth of content for Madden Ultimate Team fans.
Devoted fans will also be able to unlock legendary players in Madden Ultimate Team and then play as those same NFL greats in the brand new Connected Careers mode. Hall of Famers like Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and more can all be unlocked in Madden Ultimate Team and then utilized in Connected Careers.
Madden NFL Gridiron Club
Madden NFL Gridiron Club is a free loyalty program that rewards fans for playing EA SPORTS NFL specific games. Madden NFL Gridiron Club will provide fans awards based on how members spend their time with any EA SPORTS NFL title, including Madden NFL, NFL Street, and NFL Tour, among others. Madden NFL Gridiron Club will also serve as the central hub for fans to easily access weekly Madden NFL content releases such as roster updates, Madden Moments Live and pro gamer tips.
