Get ready for a new year of Madden 18, which starts with a January Title Update. This addresses the kickoff exploit and polishes the AI’s ability to carry the ball and deal with fake-outs.
Read up on the full list of patch notes here:
Substantial reduction to fake-outs for user controlled defenders when defending ball carrier special moves
Slight reduction to fake-outs for AI controlled defenders when defending ball carrier special moves
Addressed an issue that was causing some AI controlled ball carriers to move slowly and/or not perform special moves
Tuned to decrease range of width on kickoffs to address the kickoff exploit that could force returners out of bounds inside their own five-yard line
Developer Note: Players have given us feedback that they’d like more control when clicked-on to a defender in pursuit. We wanted to provide more opportunities for both user-controlled and AI-controlled defenders to make tackles vs. jukes and spins.
What do you want to see from Madden 18 this year? Let us know.
