Madden 21 is here, and we aren't far from release on PS5 and Xbox Series X as well.

First, of course, the game has a couple months on current-gen consoles.

Here's everything you should know about Madden 21 on PS4 vs PS5.

Latest News - Madden Ultimate Team Overview

The last thing revealed for Madden 21 was the changes for MUT, and some initial sets.

With some new content added on top, we now have an idea of where Madden Ultimate Team is at for the first week after release!

This includes sets like Rivalz, NFL Epics, Captains, Superstars, and more.

Madden 21 Price

While Madden 21 is available for now and Dual Entitlement is an option, we've seen next-gen consoles invite new pricing schemes with NBA 2K21 costing $10 more for next gen copies.

This could mean different pricing for Madden 21 editions on next-gen consoles.

All these delays just means more time to decide which Sony console you should play Madden 21 on. Allow us to help with that.

Madden 21 on PS4 will be a safe, reliable way to play the game without investing in an entirely new console along with it.

While the game is being designed with next-gen capabilities in mind, the PS4 release should still be just as functional. This also means no waiting in line for the next-gen console's release.

Madden 21 on PS5 will be the series' first leap to next-gen technology. And with competitor 2K Games signing with the NFL to make football video games again, this combined pressure should mean EA steps up big for Madden 21.

Sure you'll have to pick up an entirely new console, and maybe even wait for access to the console on release day, but this is the way to play Madden 21 to its full potential with all the extra processing power and more of the PS5.
