GOAL LINE STAND: These late fixes continue to improve Madden 21

The following changes were made to the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions of the game:

  • Multiple on-field play and animation fixes
  • Fixed an issue allowing the play to sometimes be incorrectly blown dead If the QB stood still for a significant duration of time.
  • Fixed an exploit allowing a user on defense to go offsides and block a field goal while losing and after the penalty was accepted, the half would end without another attempt on the untimed down.
  • Fixed an issue causing multiple sideline characters to clip into the walls in the Falcons stadium.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Center to sometimes fall to the ground at the snap on under-center plays. This was caused by a detected physics collision between the center and QB that led to a stumble animation, which has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue on the play Gun Wing Stack PA Slide preventing the receiver icons from appearing after the play-fake.
  • General stability fixes
