Madden 22 Update 1.011 Patch Notes | Madden 22 January Update Patch Notes:

Madden NFL 22 (Xbox Series X|S & PS5)

Key Highlights:

  • Gameplay tuning around Run Commit and RPO Peek Plays
  • Various Franchise issues addressed

Gameplay Updates:

  • Addressed an issue when using Run Commit with 3 or fewer rushers on defense
  • Updated functionality of RPO Peek plays so the ball will be handed off automatically when the QB does not throw the ball within the provided window.
    • DEV NOTE: RPO Peek plays will now function like every other type of RPO play call, where the ball will be automatically handed off if the ball isn’t thrown. Players will be unable to scramble with the QB now unless they call RPO Read plays.
  • Fixed a ‘Spike’ Touchdown Celebration animation where the ball would be in the wrong hand and the scoring player would do the spike with an empty hand.
  • Addressed an issue with the Film Study Ability where the opponent’s play art was not being displayed in online games after meeting the requirements

Franchise Updates:

  • Fixed an issue where scenarios were incorrectly awards a development trait upgrade even though they failed reaching the goal when swimming
  • Fixed an issue where some scenarios were not tracking properly due to a bug with the stat type
  • Fixed an issue where users would rarely hit a soft lock in the Training Recap screen
  • Fixed an issue where users would occasionally soft-lock when exiting Franchise before the draft
  • Fixed an issue where users would soft lock after exiting a game

In December, we reiterated our commitment to continuing to improve Franchise as a part of our ongoing Madden NFL 22 live service and beyond. This includes two upcoming Franchise updates that we’ll deliver in Madden NFL 22. We will have more detail on those updates in an upcoming Gridiron Notes, thank you!
