Madden NFL 21 has brought the Madden Ultimate Team game mode again, and there are now four legendary captains to choose from.
Madden NFL 21 is the newest chapter in the long-running American football series. The game has somehow had a rocky run-up to launch, with many fans and critics angry at a lack of improvements and new features displayed in the trailers.
While there is some new stuff to the classic Madden series, most game modes resemble the previous titles. One of these modes is the Madden Ultimate Team, introduced in Madden NFL 10.
The mode’s goal is to level up a custom team with tiered trading cards and then utilize it to compete online. The teams can be managed by unique Captains, who can boost up the whole experience. Here is what you need to know.
Starting a Team
Captain’s has a significant role in Madden Ultimate Team. There are four legendary NFL captains you can pick, which change from game to game. In Madden NFL 21, the captains are DT La’Roi Glover, CB Aeneas Williams, RB Eddie George, and WR Ed McCaffrey.
To start, open the Ultimate Team, and you’ll notice a series of simple challenges waiting to be completed. They’re arranged into a tutorial mode, titled Ultimate Team 101. Return to the Ultimate Team home screen after you finished the challenges, and choose your Team Captain.
To choose a Team Captain, you must go through Captain Tryouts. There are four of them, and you have to complete them in order, one for each of the captains in the game.
Eddie George needs players to have reached 15+ yards in the drive, La’Roi Glover needs to prevent 20+ yards on the opposing team’s drive. Ed McCaffrey will need 20+ yards on the drive, and finally, Aeneas Williams will require 15 or fewer yards on the opposing team’s drive.
Finishing the four tryouts will bring you the Team Captain Fantasy Pack. As a high-tier player, it’s recommended that every team includes at least one of these captains.
Madden NFL 21 will be launched on August 28, 2020, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
