This year's entry in the franchise will include a new feature called Face of the Franchise: Rise to Fame.

In addition, fans can expect more than 50 new Superstar X-Factor abilities, Live Playbooks 2.0, and a new season of Ultimate Team content, along with other new features.

Those who pre-order the Madden NFL 21 MVP Edition will be granted 3-Day Early Access, a Lamar Jackson Elite Item with Power Up, 17 Madden Ultimate Team Gold Team Fantasy Packs, one Large Quicksell Training Pack, Madden Championship Series Ultimate Champion Pack, 1 of 32 Elite Players from Team Elite Pack and one “Your Choice” Uniform Pack.

EA Access and Origin Access Basic members can also get a head start trying Madden NFL 21 before launch day. Members also receive a number of in-game perks, as well as 10% off the full game and all Madden Ultimate Team purchases. Origin Access Premier members get all the benefits of Origin Access Basic, plus full access to Madden NFL 21 MVP Edition on PC before launch day that they can play as much as they want as long as they are members.
