• Madden NFL 20 February Update Brings Updated Playbooks, Play-call AI, & More

    The February title update is now available for Madden NFL 20. This update adds new plays and updated play-call AI via the NFL Live Playbooks feature and includes a Franchise Mode fix, among other aspects.

    The most notable new play added is in the Chiefs' Gun Trey Y-Flex Weak offensive package, Jet Chip Wasp. This play helped propel Kansas City to a victory in the Super Bowl, allowing them to convert a pivotal 3rd & 15 to Tyreek Hill for a first down.

    This update also corrects an issue within Franchise Mode that saw wide receivers with the ‘Route Runner’ Wide Archetype fail to reach a high OVR rating via progression.
