Madden 20 Patch Out Now, Here's What It Does

The NFL season ended earlier this month with Super Bowl 54, but EA Sports has not stopped supporting Madden NFL 20 with new updates. The latest patch has arrived, and the most notable introduction is related to the Super Bowl.

Specifically, the playbook has been updated with new plays and formations that were seen in Super Bowl 54. There are many new plays added to the playbook, including the memorable Jet Chip Wasp from the pivotal 3rd and 15 first-down conversion by Patrick Mahomes to Tyreek Hill. It’s part of the Gun Trey Y-Flex Weak formation, which you can see below.

You can see a full list of new plays that are now available in the patch notes below. In addition to the new plays, the Madden 20 update fixes a bug that allowed quarterbacks to abort the hand-off animation during certain reverse plays.

Additionally, Franchise mode in Madden 20 has been updated with improvements for stability and connectivity. The update also fixes a bug that caused the “Route Runner” player archetype from reaching higher overall ratings.

The February 20 patch for Madden 20 weighs in at around 2 GB on Xbox One, and it should be around the same for PS4 and PC.
