13 new offensive formations and 1 new defensive formation will be in Madden 22. Those that had a chance to participate in the Madden 22 beta noted that even with these new additions, playbooks still felt really stale.
That being said, new plays and formations are always a welcome addition to any Madden game.
Here’s a quick look at them:
- Gun Bunch Y-Flex (TE aligned in a tight split opposite the bunch receivers)
- Gun Empty Quads
- Gun Normal Y Off
- Gun Normal Y Off Close
- Gun Normal Y Off Wk
- Gun Open Flex Wk
- Gun Tight Y Off
- Gun Tight Y Off Wk
- Gun Wing HB Wk
- Pistol Open Flex Close
- Singleback Deuce Y-Flex (Makes a return to the game)
- Singleback Bunch X Nasty
- Strong Jumbo (Goal line look with the Fullback aligned strong in the backfield)
- Nickel 1-5-5 Double A Gap
Some of the formations with the most early potential are Gun Bunch Y-Flex, Gun Empty Quads, Gun Normal Y Off Close, Gun Tight Y Off, and Singleback Deuce Y-Flex.
