Crossplay has been on the wishlist of Madden fans for years. It allows you to play online with or against people on other platforms.

Fans were left disappointed in Madden 23, with cross-play not included in the title. However, Madden 24 will finally introduce the highly anticipated feature.

Players were very excited when they heard this news. They will finally be able to play with friends that have the game on different platforms.

This feature alone makes it worth buying Madden 24. It's by far the most important feature added to the game in recent years. However, it's worth noting that, only next-gen platforms will have access to crossplay.

Cross-platform

For those that haven't been able to get hold of a PS5 yet, but think they might be able to during Madden 24's cycle, cross-platform could be a key inclusion on the game.

Madden 23 included Dual Entitlement on the All Madden Edition, which granted access to PS4 and PS5 versions, with some progress syncing as long as you're using the same account for each.

Everything in Madden Ultimate Team could transfer except progress in competitive modes, and all progression in The Yard carried over, however, Franchise Mode and Face of the Franchise had absolutely zero carry-over for your save files.

So far, we still don't know if progress syncing between old-gen and next-gen consoles will be possible. However, the PlayStation store has a warning saying:

Game progress may not transfer between platforms.

This might indicate that, while some users will be able to transfer their progress others might find some issues with it.

Madden 24 is the most important title in franchise history

Madden 24 will either "make or break" the gaming franchise. The title has been the only NFL game for years, having a stronghold over the market. In the opinion of many fans, the lack of competition led to a slow decline in the game quality.

Madden 24 needs to be a great game to win the Madeen community back. Some big errors that have taken place in past years have also made fans a little bit angry.

After an update of Madden 23 made many players lose their Franchise mode saves, EA was met with heavy backlash from the community. To once again fall in the good graces of the Madden community, EA will have to deliver a groundbreaking game.

Madden 24 trailer

Fans were finally able to get a glimpse of Madden 24. On 7 June, at 11 AM ET/16 PM GMT, the trailer for Madden 24 was revealed, on a broadcast that took place on the official Madden YouTube channel.
