    Madden 20 update 1.12 patch notes

    Key Highlights:

    • Superstar KO Mode has been added as an exciting new way to play Madden NFL 20: Squad up and take down the competition in Madden’s fastest co-op eliminator mode featuring quick games, a unique stadium and commentary, dynamic rules, and icons of the football culture.

    What is Superstar KO?

    Superstar KO is a brand new, online eliminator mode for Madden 20. It is a celebration of football, a game that combines Superstar X-Factors, custom rules, and unique teams with a new, unique stadium and commentary style to provide a brand-new play experience you can’t get anywhere else. It is all about fast-to-fun gameplay, where every play matters, and games that can last from 30 seconds to 10 minutes. It always presents you interesting choices, whether it be about how you build your team, or how you overcome or take advantage of mismatches. But most of all, it is just fun. We’ve been working on this in secret for a while, and now that that cat is out of the bag, the entire team can’t wait to play with you.

    You’ll each get a chance to score in phase one, Superstar OT, and if you are still tied, you can settle the score in a brand-new house rule called Tug of War. The play on the field is dominated by Superstar X-Factors. You will be given a few to start, as well as the chance to earn (or steal!) more, but best of all, the X-Factors are active from the very first play. If you’ve wanted to see the full power of the NFL’s best, Superstar KO is the place. Finally, they all come together on eight brand new teams developed exclusively for Superstar KO. They have custom playbooks and rosters that give each team a unique flavor. From the air-it-out style of Dot City, to the defensive mastery of Shutdown. Each playbook is created to have strengths and weakness that create interesting mismatches and situations.

    Superstar KO takes place in a custom-designed stadium. Like a festival for the best football on the planet, it is in an undisclosed location where players with the X-Factors of today meet the Legends of yesterday, and maybe even some Iconic superfans as well. Calling the action is our DJ and announcer, Tre Mo, who stays on top of the game, but makes sure you know exactly how everyone is doing. The crowd gets into it as well, and they are known to be incredibly vocal. It is a vibe where fun rules, big plays are the norm, and you are never far from the action. Winning is exhilarating but losing never hurts—just jump back in and build a new team to take the crown. Finally, you can expect us to keep updating Superstar KO as the year progresses. We’ve got a bunch of new rules, players, and ideas that will keep the game fresh. But first, let’s get into how you play.

    How Do I Play Superstar KO?

    Once you come into Superstar KO, you have your first choice. You can play 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3. Each queue is unique, and you will match up with others who are playing with the same number of players. For solos, just click the play button. Squads will play once everyone you’ve invited or matchmake with is ready.

    • New Pat Tillman Superstar X-Factor Ability
      • Selfless: When players with this ability enter the zone, they will receive no benefits but will instead put all of their on-field teammates in the zone, until each is knocked out with their individual default knockout conditions.
        • This ability will be available in both Franchise and Ultimate Team. For Ultimate Team, this ability is exclusive to the MUT Master Pat Tillman player-item.
    • New Superstar Kick Return Ability
      • Return Man: Players with this ability can quickly shift momentum and change directions without sacrificing speed on kick and punt returns.
        • This ability is currently available in Play Now, but will not be available in Ultimate Team until mid to late September and added to Franchise very soon in an upcoming title update.

    Global Updates:

    • General Stability and connectivity improvements
    • Updated player likenesses for the following NFL players:
      • Raiders TE Foster Moreau
      • Saints S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson
      • Redskins OLB Montez Sweat

    Franchise Updates:

    • Fixed an issue preventing users from resuming leagues after creating league via Play Now Live and getting disconnected from the server due to inactivity
    • Fixed an issue causing the main menu to show a ‘Corrupt File’ message when trying to load a saved league from the Main Menu tile

    Presentation Updates:

    • Increased volume of music during post-game highlights
    • Various commentary updates and fixes
    • Updated Online post-play cameras to avoid frequent cycles through multiple cameras

    Gameplay Updates:

    • Fixed an issue causing the spot of the ball to be incorrect after a Holding penalty is accepted after a turnover
    • Tuning to decrease the frequency of successful hit stick tackles and increase the frequency of broken hit stick tackles
    • Tuning to increase the ‘break-on-ball’ reaction times for zone coverage defenders
      • DEV NOTE: Based on player feedback, we’ve increased the break-on-ball reaction time by two tenths of a second. You can expect Superstars and X-Factors to break consistently on the QB’s arm movement based on their specific coverage abilities. For players without abilities, the Zone Coverage (ZCV) rating will determine how quickly and how frequently they will react to passes when in zone coverage; the Man Coverage (MCV) rating will do the same if they’ve converted to man via any Match zone. This change will make zone defenders more aggressive and will apply to all game styles: Competitive, Simulation and Arcade. There will be more zone-specific tuning coming in a future title update.
