With the NFL season in the books, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers crowned champions, and presumably a new Madden NFL game on the horizon, EA is ready to add Madden 21 to its subscription catalog. According to the official social media account, Madden 21 will be added to EA Play on March 2.
What this means is that anyone who is an EA Play subscriber will be able to play Madden 21 for “free” when it’s added to the Play List on March 2. Members will also receive exclusive in-game challenges and rewards, member-only content and more. Every month, EA Play members will also get three Gold Team Fantasy MUT Packs, while EA Play Pro members get six Gold Team Fantasy MUT Packs.
Madden 21 released in August and suffered some criticism early on for the lack of attention given to Connected Franchise Mode. Over the year though, EA made good on its promise to address community feedback and have released multiple updates that add new features based on what the fans on. It’s still not perfect but it’s a start and it’s got me excited for Madden 22.
Speaking of Madden 22, EA has yet to officially announced this year’s installment, but we expect it to happen around April. EA typically waits until around the NFL Draft to reveal the newest installment in its annual football series. In the meantime, fans can enjoy Madden 21 for a few more months.
EA Play is available for Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as PC. However, EA Play Pro is only available on PC via Origin.
Now you may be wondering the difference between the two. EA Play Pro offers a larger library of games to choose from. EA Play Pro also offers unlimited access to EA’s new releases in addition to games that are in the vault.
