Madden 21 has built a brand new Ultimate Team journey for MUT 21 - but it's not too late to catch up!
Here's what you need to know to start your MUT journey in Madden 21.
Latest News - MUT 21 TOTW 15
One of the best MUT 21 sets is the Madden Team of the Week.
TOTW has a brand new system in Madden 21 which introduces old NFL legends to MUT as well as players making big impacts in the 2020 NFL season.
The next entry to the program will be MUT 21 TOTW 15 - which will be revealed Tuesday, 22 December!
MUT 21 Series 4
MUT 21 Series 4 is an upcoming drop that new players and veterans alike will need to pay attention to.
Each new MUT 21 Series brings a ton of new content to the game mode, while also giving players a chance at the best players from the past few months with Series Redux.
the MUT 21 Series 4 Series Redux will bring back the best LTD players from MUT Series 3 and offer them in packs.
Madden Ultimate Team in Madden 21 starts with some challenges to get players acclimated to the game mode. These challenges are locked to Rookie difficulty and require very simple tasks like gaining 5 yards in a possession.
For the fastest way to run through these starter challenges, simply scramble with Lamar Jackson after your receivers drag the defense back and you can handle most of them in a single snap.
This is EA's way of screening out players who aren't yet ready to play against other people.
Depending on the way you purchased Madden 21, you might have bonus packs to start your Madden Ultimate Team journey.
For players with access to the game now, you'll have pre-ordered the MVP or Deluxe Edition of Madden 21.
The Deluxe Edition comes with 12 Madden Ultimate Team Gold Team Fantasy Packs (which allow you to choose a team and open players from its history), and a NFL Team Elite Pack.

You should open your Gold Team Fantasy Packs first, as these give a variety of rewards, which will help you choose better for your lineup for packs with choices between top players.
Don't Buy Packs
After opening your pre-order packs if you have them, you'll be tempted to purchase some more. Despite this feeling, don't buy packs in MUT without realizing they aren't the most valuable way to grow! These are always a gamble, and almost never worth the cost to purchase them unless you get lucky.
Instead, simply pick up the players you need on the Marketplace as they are posted. This is how you coins in the long run.
Once you've got your team set, it's time to dive into solo content. Yes, that's right, not a multiplayer queue.
This is because solo missions are the best way to build up your team and grind out coins.
The first sets of missions are very simple, and once you're able to start leveling up the difficulty, this is worth it for the extra rewards.

Keep an eye on bonus objectives for missions, as these also offer additional rewards and are usually pretty straightforward if you know about them ahead of time.
Once you've grinded out the basic starting missions, it's time to earn your Captain.
This is done by completing the tryouts for each MUT Captain, then choosing which you'd like to bring on to your squad.
Like all choice packs, choose your Captain based on their fit with your lineup rather than their name value.
Once you've gotten your Captain, the next step is to grab your star from the NFL Epics.
This set includes some 85 OVR players to choose from, and puts you in more difficult situations to earn them.
It may be a step up in competition, but it's also a huge step up in reward.
