Madden 18 update 1.09 patch notes

  • 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

Meanwhile, fans are keen to hear about details on Madden 19. EA Sports may move away from yearly releases of its sports game by adopting a subscription-based model. We’re still waiting to hear about their plans for 2019.
