Available on the PC again! Maybe I'll actually play it this year.

When talking and listening to players, we kept hearing that being a star of their own football story would be fantastic. With that in mind, we crafted Face of the Franchise: QB1, where the story is not only about you, but one where the choices you make matter.

It kicks off with creating yourself as a quarterback – even using “face editing” to get an improved likeness. Once you have your player, you begin in college, choosing from top schools to attend, then competing for a national championship in the college football playoffs. Be the BMOC and take home the title, but bring your A-game, because your performance in college – just like on the real collegiate gridiron – has an impact on your capabilities and your draft stock.

The NFL draft doesn’t just happen, though – the combine comes first. Ever-increasing in importance and scrutinization, the combine is a key part of the process. And here, if you want your stock to soar, you’ll need to focus on every rep and decision you make to keep your name rising on draft boards. Where will you get picked, and where will your NFL career start? You’ll find out on draft day!

IN THE LEAGUE


No matter where you get drafted – from first round to last – once a team picks you, you’re going to have to show you belong playing with the pros. Whether you’re a first-rounder who needs to prove you were the perfect high pick, or a seventh-rounder busting your ass to make the roster, if you want success you have to work hard and make each opportunity count.

In the NFL, start building your legacy and taking your franchise to winning seasons, expanding your legend with each snap. It’s not about the cash your contracts rack up, but about how many Super Bowls you win as your legend grows. Give your all – and have fun – as you play your way into memorable moments. When you celebrate your career at the end, will you be remembered among the greats, placed alongside them in the Hall of Fame?

As you live your superstar story, Madden’s new Scenario Engine generates personalized playable scenarios, events, and dynamic challenges that tell the tale of a unique NFL career. Adding to it, in Face of the Franchise: QB1, like in Franchise mode, you choose your Archetype: Strong Arm, Scrambler, Improviser, Field General. Superstar abilities are tied to the Archetype you pick. Levelling up your archetypes unlocks different abilities.

It’s time for you to take your place as the face of the franchise.

OTHER MADDEN FRANCHISE IMPROVEMENTS

While we heard fan feedback for a superstar experience, we also dove deep into the forums and reddit and worked with Gamechangers to round out Franchise mode in other ways, too. With that, here are a few more things to get you ready to break the huddle.

Pro Bowl Returns to Madden NFL 20


The first thing you’ll see while Madden NFL 20 sets up is the Pro Bowl. You can play the pro bowl while the game installs, and you will also have the opportunity to qualify for the Pro Bowl during your Franchise seasons. It’s another opportunity to gain valuable experience and add to your Legacy.

Ratings Spread

We’ve adjusted the range of ratings that you’ll see on players. What does this mean? As examples:

The ratings difference between a 90 OVR player and an 89 OVR player is now larger

Each skill point you spend will be more impactful, and you can earn more skill points over the course of a career

In some cases, you will now see a starter with an OVR in the mid-50s.

New Scenarios

We’ve added an all-new in-game system that generates personalized playable scenarios featuring interactions with characters via a variety of ways including branching dialogue, dynamic events that reflect your performance and choices, challenges that build the story of your unique NFL career (from the moment you sign your rookie contract to you Hall of Fame induction), and more.

Development Traits

We’ve made large updates to our Development Trait system to support Superstar and Zone abilities. The Development Traits in Madden 20 are: Normal, Star, Superstar, and Superstar X-Factor. Both Superstar and X-Factors players can earn Superstar Abilities, but only X-Factors can earn Zone Abilities. We’ve also addressed one of the communities’ biggest complaints: players dropping down in Development Trait. In Madden 20, players can no longer go down in Development Trait at the end of a season.

Coach Mode

Coach mode is also getting scenarios. And the changes to Development Traits have a big impact on Coach mode. Coaches will want to build up their teams with Superstars and X-Factor Superstars via Trades, free agency, and the draft. We’ve also added an overhauled lineup UI to make Franchise mode even smoother.

Contract Updates

We’ve taken a meticulous pass on existing player contracts to ensure they match the NFL. This will not only be more authentic, but it will also make managing your roster’s cap space more realistic.

Progression Updates

We’ve overhauled our progression tuning, including making changes to XP gains from weekly training, actions on the field, and goal completion. These changes should ultimately lead to users being able to increase the OVR of more players on their team meaning they have more option in how to develop their roster.

Draft Updates

We’ve taken a full pass on our Rookie Generators. People familiar with draft classes from the past few years are in for some new surprises, from names, to bodies, to ratings, and more.

One more draft surprise is that rookies with a Superstar Development or higher trait will have their development trait hidden until they’ve played through at least half of a season. These players have their abilities hidden until you reveal their Development Trait. This means that if you draft either a Superstar or an X-Factor Superstar you won’t know exactly what you’ve drafted until later in a season – use your preseason wisely.

Gameplay Effects Updated

We’ve implemented a ton of changes, like Throw Power overhauls to change QB trajectories. But that’s just one example! Tune in to our gameplay stream on 5/23 for more of the inside scoop on additions and changes you’ll find in Madden NFL 20.

Nah, I would never cheat to get ahead. I don't even like to cheese.

I'm just looking for ways to finesse the cap. Since you can't backload contracts in the game I figure there might be some other technique to get these deals done..

But it's cool. I let Fuller hit FA. I'm going to see about unloading as many of these horrible contracts as possible. Watkins, Fisher, LDT, Hitchens, Sorenson and Colquitt are all gone as soon as it becomes cost-effective.

One thing you can do to get a player to sign is increase the signing bonus and lower the salary....but it's a minor thing.

So I just wrapped up my first season and it was a doozy.

Andrew Luck is apparently still in the game. He was scooped up by the Falcons and had an MVP season. It was hilarious seeing Matt Ryan o#2 on the depth chart. They were spending like $40m on QBs this season.

The Brownies got the #1 seed on the strength of Baker's 40+ TDs, KHunt's runner-up for OPOY, and Myles Garrett leading the league in sacks.

The Patriots, Chargers, and Steelers all missed the playoffs.

I got swept by the Raiders lol

Did someone post a draft guide in this thread?

I'm feeling like the offense will be OK regardless. Pat really is ridiculous and with Kelce and Hill it's almost unfair, but I'd like to re-tool the OL, pick up a RB with 95+ speed and a TE2 since we run a lot of two TE sets. Other than that I need to focus on LB and CB, obvi.

The game actually got the cap right this year so...if you fuck up...you gotta deal with it.
Yeah...got the cap right.

Madden didn’t get the cap remotely right.

And it’s a motherfucking joke that you can’t at least front or backload contracts. They had that shit in the game back in 2011.

Shit franchise. I bought it for the final time since Mahomes was on it.

I mean, it's better than it was. It's actually hard to sign everyone now - and combined with the draft being MUCH harder, building a dynasty is going to be tough.

I'm enjoying this game. Sorry if you aren't.

Okay, so I downloaded the opening week rosters and started a franchise....and Andrew fucking Luck came out of retirement and is playing for the Broncos!

Is there any way I can force him to re-retire or do I have to scrap the franchise?

Lolz of course he did, I started my Franchise before he retired so i'm unaffected. Go in and edit him and make him all zeroes. :-)

That might work....or at least give him the same numbers as Flacco.

I did not see an option in franchise mode to edit the players like that. I'll have to give that a google.

Thanks for the idea!

ya you can just go to rosters and then select team, position and then click on the player and scroll down to edit.

I only did it with Luck and Shazier. Seriously, Shazier broke his neck why is he in the game still? That seems wrong.
