Madden 24 Title Update November 2023

Madden 24 Title Update Details – November 2nd, 2023

A new title update for Madden 24 went live on all systems earlier today. It includes fixes to gameplay, franchise mode, ultimate team and more.

Here are the full details directly from EA:

GRIDIRON NOTES

Key Update for you:

  • Gen 4 Player Experience: Since our last title update, some players have reported slower experience on Gen 4. The MUT team has made adjustments across the entire MUT Hub to improve loading and transition times for all platforms.

GAMEPLAY:

  • Tuning to lower the ratings threshold for catching interceptions on the Competitive game style to decrease the number of dropped interceptions.
  • DEV NOTE: This applies to open catches, since physical contact with a player or the ball can still cause the ball to be knocked out. 
  • Fixed an issue causing undesired catch-drops when the QB would get hit during or shortly after throwing the ball.
  • DEV NOTE: In our September Title Update, we included a fix to decrease the chance for defenders to catch the ball quickly after a QB pass out of a hit, but that fix had the unintended result of decreasing the chance to catch passes during or after a QB hit globally. In response, we are backing that change out of the game to return catch-chances to previous values. This will temporarily re-introduce situations that allow pass rushers to sometimes catch the ball when the QB throws out of a hit, but we plan to refine that logic without impacting the global catch-chance in an upcoming title update. 
  • Fixed an issue causing the curl-flat defender in 3-4 Odd SS Trap 2 to align on the wrong side of the field against empty sets.
  • Fixed an issue causing safeties and cornerbacks to have flipped assignments when covering offensive formations with 3 tight ends.
  • Fixed an issue allowing the ball carrier to have no fumble chance when diving; after this fix, ball carriers will have a higher risk of fumbling when diving into traffic.
  • Increased the size of the Passing Accuracy meter.
  • Fixed an issue sometimes allowing unblocked defenders when using block-and-release routes in empty formations.
  • DEV NOTE: Eligible receivers with a block-and-release assignment will not go out into their route until they have at least made contact with the blitzing defender that they are targeting. The blocker will stay in the engagement for a very short period of time, then release on his route.
  • Fixed a rare issue causing players engaged in a block to freeze on the field for the rest of the play.

FRANCHISE MODE:

  • NFL games scheduled in Germany will be played at Deutsche Bank Park.
  • Fixed an issue where the Weekly Strategy selection would reset to default after completing a Mini-Game with a focus player.
  • Fixed a rare crash that would occur in game when a player from a downloaded draft class would occasionally have incomplete player data.
  • Fixed an issue where the halftime report during the game would sometimes show the wrong teams/scores.
  • Various News story text bug fixes.

MADDEN ULTIMATE TEAM:

  • Fixed an issue where some users would receive a server error when entering MUT.
  • Fixed an issue where the New Item Flow would occasionally not appear after making a purchase from the direct purchase panel.
  • Fixed an issue where some users would receive a blank rewards flow screen.
  • Fixed an issue with bundles purchased from the direct purchase panel that would require the user to back out of MUT and return to see the packs from the bundle in their unopened packs.
  • Improved loading times in and out of objectives screen.
  • Fixed a bug where some sets that were not described as returning items incorrectly displayed the “Returned on Completion” icon.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the new items flow to incorrectly display rewards if more than 35 rewards were present.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some users to not receive rewards after playing MUT Champs.
  • Fixed a Playstation 5 specific bug that linked the user to the wrong location from the PlayStation home screen field pass link.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the top 100 tab to not populate after finishing a Solo Battle.
  • Various visual improvements and bug fixes within the MUT menus.

SUPERSTAR MODE:

  • Fixed an issue with UI where a different position save is seen on Superstar loadout screen.
  • Fixed an issue where OVR and abilities did not change after Avatar reset.
  • Fixed an issue where Franchise PS5 Activity began when Combine started.
  • Fixed UI interface where the Rotate button was not visible in Avatar Creation Hub.
  • Fixed UI interface where the Speed Boost reward had no icon in Level Path.
  • Fixed various issues with stability.
  • Fixed an issue in Showdown where button hints flash repeatedly on the Ready Up screen.
  • Updated Featured Deals tile in Showdown.
  • Fixed an issue with server error showing up when entering Showdown.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the celebration wheel from displaying after a user sack in the end zone in Superstar Showdown.

NFL AUTHENTICITY:

  • Added Randy Moss’s Signature TD Celebration.
  • Updated D.J. Chark’s signature TD celebration.

  • Player Portraits – Updated 185 player portraits.
