Madden 22 was released on the same platforms as Madden 21, which included PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia.
The official reveal trailer seen above featured our first look at the actual gameplay of Madden 22 and shined the spotlight on cover athletes Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
Players who pre ordered the MVP Edition or Dynasty Edition of Madden 22 should make sure to claim their Ultimate Team rewards, which you can find more details about here.
Promos, Challenges, Missions, and Packs
We're still working through MUT 22, but most of the mechanics of these pieces returned in a similar or identical fashion.
We're still seeing unique promos and programs like MUT Heroes and MUT Legends in the game and we'll keep you updated each time another one is added.
Challenges and Missions made a return, and we should see updates that make them more fresh and exciting for players.
Promos & Programs
One of the first big questions going into MUT 22 will be what the first promo chosen for Madden 22 Ultimate Team ends up being, which is often also called programs.
Madden has used tons of different promo themes in the past several years, and here are just a few we expected to return for MUT 22:
- Autumn Blast
- Bo Knows Best
- Campus Heroes
- Ghosts of Madden
- Golden Ticket
- MUT Heroes
- MUT Master
- Out of Position (OOP)
- Power Up
- Snow Beasts
- Sugar Rush
- Zero Chill
Challenges & Missions
One of the earliest things you'll have to take on in MUT 22 is starting challenges, which served as a test of skills and also partly as a tutorial in MUT 21.
After you get through the starting challenges, you'll take on others which often include recreating classic moments or performing in a specific preset scenario.
By comparison, missions tend to be made up of other tasks like collecting certain kinds of players or doing certain tasks in games that will lead you to a final reward for the mission.
MUT 22 Packs
The bedrock of Ultimate Team are packs, and we're sure to see plenty of new and returning types of packs in MUT 22.
Packs become the primary way you earn new cards and content for Madden Ultimate Team, and that doesn't change in Madden 22.
You can purchase in-game currency to buy packs with real-world money, but you can also use training, points, or coins earned in MUT to purchase packs.
MUT 22 Beginner's Guide
Madden 22 Ultimate Team (MUT 22) allows you to build a squad with both the stars of the current game and the legendary players of yesteryear.
You will go undertake a series of challenges, often aiming to receive packs with new cards to further expand and upgrade your Ultimate Team.
You can choose to focus on building the best team full of players from your favorite franchise, known as Theme Teams, or go fully competitive and build a monster squad to take on others online.
