    The second January game update for Madden NFL 20 is now availaable and - among other aspects - provides the final update to the list of Superstar X-Factor and Superstar players. New X-Factor players include Titans RB Derrick Henry, Steelers OLB TJ Watt, Browns RB Nick Chubb, Bills CB Tre’Davious White, and Vikings DE Danielle Hunter.

    Also worth nothing is the addition of new functionality with Playcall Cooldowns & Limits within Madden Ultimate Team. From the official blog: This feature will be introduced via House Rules. Madden Ultimate Team now has the ability to configure a playcall cooldown or limit. After selecting a play with cooldowns, that play will not be selectable again until X amount of plays have been run. With limits, a play will have a configured number of how many total times that play can be called for the rest of the game. Cooldowns and limits can be combined together. We’re excited to hear your feedback when this House Rule launches, likely the end of January/early February.

    This new feature has already been highly requested for possible addition within Franchise Mode as an option to help force players to use more of their playbooks and not resort to the same handful of plays.

    The January Madden NFL 20 game update (1.22) is now available and includes changes to run commit, commentary updates, Franchise stability, additional players in the Superstar KO pool, and more.

    According to patch notes, the changes made will cause the "Updated ‘Run Commit’ mechanic to be more effective at stopping running plays when used toward the correct side of the run on all game styles." Some of the reactions to the Run Commit changes have been less than ideal.

    Also worth noting is that the patch notes state that the disallowed player list name within Face of the Franchise: QB1 have been updated. Some names will not be allowed within the College Football Playoff, but can be edited back once the player is drafted.

    Another game update is now available for Madden NFL 20. This update builds upon the previous September game update in correcting game issues, most notably using the standard 'general stability and connectivity improvements' terminology.

    The most notable change is the addition of Colts WR T.Y. Hilton as a Superstar X-Factor to replace the recently retired Andrew Luck. Hilton will possess the RAC ‘em Up, Double Move Elite, and Route Technician abilities.

    As part of tonight's Madden NFL 20 cover athlete reveal, EA SPORTS also announced the new mode 'Face of the Franchise: QB1' and the inclusion of the College Football Playoff and ten college football programs.

    This new mode is being labeled as a career campaign centered around the user. Players will create a quarterback that they can then compete in the College Football Playoff en route to being drafted and entering the NFL.

    The ten programs that users can select to place their created quarterback are Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon, Southern Cal, Texas, and Texas Tech.

    Following the cancellation of the NCAA Football franchise in 2013, Madden NFL 18's Longshot mode was the first to include any form of college football with users playing as Texas versus Oregon in Darrell K. Royal Stadium. With M20 adding the College Football Playoff and ten total programs, could EA SPORTS be planning an eventual return to college football gaming? At the very least, it would seem that the company has realized including college football in Madden - and making it one of their first major marketing announcements - is a selling point for the product. ...
