What is new in Madden 21 1.05 Patch Notes?
Colin Kaepernick (rating 81) has been added to Madden NFL 21. Available in Play Now and Franchise Mode.
Starting today in Madden NFL 21, fans can put Colin Kaepernick at the helm of any NFL team in Franchise mode, as well as play with him in Play Now. We look forward to seeing Colin on Madden NFL teams everywhere.
In Franchise mode, players have the opportunity to sign Kaepernick by starting a new franchise with their favorite team as an owner or coach where they are in control. Once the franchise has been started, simply go to sign free agents and sort by QBs to find Kaepernick as the highest-rated free agent QB in the game.
The Yard is a brand new backyard football-inspired mode in Madden NFL 21 where self-expression with your own create-a-player (CAP), wild gameplay moments, house rules, and a fearless attitude are the name of the game. In celebration of Kaepernick’s return, the Nike Kaepernick Icon Jersey 2.0 will be made available for free inside The Yard for you to equip your CAP.
Signature, user-controlled celebrations are new to Madden NFL 21 and Kaepernick has chosen his own for fans to activate in game. Following a big play or touchdown, you will see Kaepernick raise his fist as a symbol of Black Power when you choose to celebrate with him, as he did during his last season.
What is fixed in Madden version 1.05?
Fix to an issue preventing defenders in contain from staying in contain when being blocked by a running back in the backfield. The rusher will keep their contain behavior when blocked by any blocker on the line or in the backfield
Fix to an issue causing the initial pass-rush move of contain players to take them to the inside gap instead of their assigned outside gap.
Addition of logic to support QB Contain vs. play-action passing plays
Fix to ‘On-Field Trainer’ issues related to pass rush
Addition of logic so that defenders without the Strip Specialist Ability will no longer cause fumbles on QBs standing in the Pocket with Normal Sack animations on Competitive game-style only. Only defenders with the Strip Specialist ability will be able to force a fumble on a QB standing in the Pocket on Competitive.
Fix to an issue when using motion in a Twins/Slot formation vs. Nickel/Dime/Dollar defenses, defenders inappropriately swap assignments, leaving the receiver uncovered

Throw Out of Sack

Increase to the fumble chance for QBs throwing out of a sack that are hit significantly before they have started their forward arm movement. The greater the Defender’s Tackle vs Quarterback’s Strength rating discrepancy is in favor of the defender, the higher the fumble chance
