Latest - Patch Notes reveal X Factor and Playbook changes

Madden 23 Update 1.08 Patch Notes (December 8)
After teasing a special announcement, Madden 23 Update 1.08 was announced during the latest special Zero Chill reveal stream.
Good Morning Madden normally arrives in the mornings, but this special evening stream capped off a string of Zero Chill announcements with an entire new feature.
Madden 23 Update 1.08, which will be our December Title Update, is set to deploy on the morning of December 8, 2022.
This update arrives just three weeks after Madden 23 Update 1.07 delivered some key Franchise bug fixes including for the Draft Revert issue.
Exact release time for this Madden 23 Title Update wasn't confirmed, but the cards for Zero Chill are expected around Noon ET.
As such, the update itself will likely deploy before the Zero Chill release and we should also get the full Gridiron Notes with detailed Madden 23 Update 1.08 Patch Notes.
However, we already know about that a long requested feature will be arriving for the first time with Ultimate Team Practice Mode.
We have more details on that addition below, but we do expect some of the many bug fixes requesting for Madden 23 since launch will also be addressed.
Madden 23 Ultimate Team Practice Mode arrives
There's no denying the biggest highlight of Madden 23 Update 1.08 will be the addition of MUT Practice Mode.
This is a feature long requested by Ultimate Team players, and even longtime EA veteran RG stated he'd been trying to get the feature added since as early as 2015.
The feedback from fans and requests have finally been heard, as MUT Practice Mode will be live in-game when Madden 23 Update 1.08 deploys.
While players have been able to enter a normal Practice Mode, the addition of MUT Practice Mode allows players to customize difficulty while testing out their squad.
You'll be able to test out different lineups and abilities in action with the proper difficulties to know what feels right before having to jump into the action in MUT 23.
This offers an entirely new avenue for longtime Ultimate Team players to fine tune their teams and feel different strategies work on the field.
It's also a fantastic addition for new players as Zero Chill gets ready to deliver dozens of new cards to MUT 23.
If you've been on the fence, MUT Practice Mode is the perfect way to get a feel for different players and abilities as you dip your toes in.
