Everything You Need To Know About The First Major Patch For Madden 16
One of the best parts about modern video games is the fact that any post-launch issues with the game can easily be fixed with a patch from the publisher. (go to NFL coins) That’s exactly what has happened with EA Sports’ release of Madden 16.
The game was plagued with a number of issues following release and EA quickly got to work on ironing out those issues. Here’s everything you need to know about that patch.
What does the patch fix?
As many users reported following the release of Madden 16, there were a number of minor bugs plaguing the game. Luckily EA’s recent patch went some way to fix those bugs.
In terms of gameplay, the patch fixed a bug in which AI defenders would receive an encroachment penalty for no reason. Additionally, the patch has now stopped receivers from being called down, even when they weren’t being touched.
Likewise, the patch has tweaked a number of connected franchise functions and overall balanced the game out a bit. An issue in which certain teams wouldn’t display an image is now said to have been fixed, meaning you’ll be able to smoothly have a good look at your team again before selecting them to take out onto the field.
Finally, a few issues in terms of inaccurate commentary have been fixed and you can now use multiple controllers without running the risk of the game crashing. In all, the patch seems to have fixed the majority of initial bugs within the game.
When is the patch available?
According to Madden 16’s publisher Electronic Arts, the patch is available right now on Microsoft’s Xbox One platform and Sony’s PlayStation 4. If you already own the game, the patch should download automatically, whilst new players should receive the patch when they first load up the game. If that isn’t the case, you should be able to install the patch from Madden 16’s page on your console’s digital store.
Strangely however, EA haven’t provided any details as to when the patch will be available for players on the PC version of the game, or last generation consoles, including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. (click MMOLINK COMPANY) That version of the game has faced many of the same issues, but EA haven’t provided any details about when they’ll be patching those issues.
How can you download it?
As aforementioned, if you’re on a current generation platform, including Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Madden 16’s first major patch should download automatically or should be available when you first load up the game. That being said, if you’re not seeing the patch, you might need to download it manually from your console’s store.
Players on PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will unfortunately need to keep an eye out for when EA patch the game on their console.
In conclusion, whilst it was disappointing to see Madden 16 plagued with issues upon release, it’s great that EA are quickly patching those issues. Now everyone can continue to enjoy this fantastic game.
