Madden NFL 22 Gameplay Updates:

Pass Coverage: Before we get into the gameplay updates, we wanted to let you know that we are aware of the feedback around pass coverage. We're continuing to monitor and collect the community's feedback that they have shared with us. We look forward to sharing the actions we're taking towards pass coverage.

  • Mode-Specific tuning of Momentum added – for online head-to-head modes, momentum will swing slower
  • Addressed an issue causing exploit management to activate inappropriately when the defense had only 3 pass rushers/blitzers vs. running plays
    • DEV NOTE: On Competitive game style, it's still possible for this logic to kick in if you are dropping 9 or more defenders into coverage vs. a running play with a heavy run set.
  • Fixed an issue causing the DE to be unblocked too frequently vs. Nickel Double A Gap looks; with 5-man protections, the tackle and guard will sometimes still have to squeeze down to protect the A-gap, but this change will allow the DE to be blocked more regularly
  • Addressed an issue where users running the RPO Zone Peek plays were able to easily scramble outside the pocket if they kept the ball with the QB. The defenders on the line will now play for the chance of the QB scrambling
  • Fixed an issue causing running backs to be kept out of the game too long after getting fatigued
  • Playbook Updates:
    • Added New Formations:
      • Singleback Bunch X Nasty to LA Rams playbook
      • Pistol Double Stack added to Chargers, Eagles, Lions, and Steelers playbooks
    • Updated AI-team play-calling on offense for more team-specific tendencies and improved Super-Sim stats
    • Fixed an issue sometimes causing the TE to collide with an offensive lineman as he ran his route behind the line of scrimmage on play-action boot play
    • Fixed issues so that the correct Read and Pass keys for RPO Read Option plays are identified more accurately
