Despite being several months away, we can't wait to see what EA has in store for Madden 24 this year!
We are expecting the game to be released in mid-August of this year, but we should know more about the new game in the months building up to launch.
With that in mind, here are three things we want to see in Madden 24.
EA already has a winning formula when it comes to Ultimate Team mode with their FIFA franchise leading the way.
Both the NHL and Madden games have their own Ultimate Team modes, and it feels like Madden would benefit massively from following the FIFA model.
Streamlining the mode to make it easier for players to play competitively or challenge themselves in alternate game modes is a start.
The content within MUT also needs updating, with irregular releases with little to no information available on its details frustrating for fans.
Team of the Week releases have all the basics covered, but EA can do more with the boosted items, just as they have done in FIFA 23.
EA's FIFA social pages are much more active too, and this all contributes to the playing experience in MUT.
Improved Physics Engine
In what is a pretty common complaint each year, the Madden 24 physics engine will still require a few more tweaks to really represent the kind of action we see on the field in the real world.
The only way we can describe the current engine is one that allows for a lot of incidental contacts and makes players feel 'floaty'.
In reality, the weight of the game is much greater and it would be great to see the physics engine try and replicate this in tight spaces.
Whether that's running backs attacking a gap or receivers challenging double coverage, the game will benefit from the extra physical feel.
Fresh Face of the Franchise
Just as MUT can take inspiration from FIFA Ultimate Team, the Face of the Franchise Mode can also look at a successful story mode for improvements.
In this field, NBA 2K's MyCareer is the leading mode, with its immersive cinematic gaming experience leaving it clear as number one.
EA seems to struggle with creating exciting storylines and developing the immersive feel of their story modes, so this would be a big positive.
Will EA go all in on creating a compelling Face of the Franchise Mode in Madden 24? It seems unlikely, but we can only hope!
