EA Sports today released additional details on the Seasons feature within Madden NFL 25’s Ultimate Team mode. Similar to those found in NCAA Football and FIFA’s Ultimate Team offerings and being introduced this year in Madden, the Online Seasons offer 10 game stretches followed by playoffs for the right to move on to the next level. There will also be bonus coins provided for competing in Seasons. 

You’ll earn coins for each game you play in Seasons. More coins are awarded for outstanding performances, such as winning by lots of points or accumulating many yards of offense. Milestones such as earning a playoff berth or winning the bye are also accompanied by coin rewards. At certain milestones in later levels, you’ll receive a reward pack that contains a Premium collectable that helps you get some great items such as unique alternate jerseys. You’ll always receive an additional reward pack for winning the Super Bowl.

One concern out of that is EA encouraging people to run up the score and boost statistical output when the outcome for a game is no longer in question. That could lead to even more aggravating experiences and reason for those on the wrong end to rage quit – though one advantage to having Seasons is completing a loss is better than taking a disconnect. Regardless the Seasons aspect of Ultimate Team has proven to deliver a more compelling reason to continue playing and working towards improving both the team and individual skill so it should help make the mode even more popular in Madden this year than it has been in previous iterations.

    Madden is a lost cause for me Pasta. I miss 2k so much. I just can’t get into Madden anymore this gen or next gen. the game play is so sterile and an exercise in aggravation. Plus I don’t think My 360 will be able to run it much like NCAA 14. but thanks to that I finally see how bad EA football is.

    Glad they are bringing this over to Madden

    The lack of videos for this game from EA is really telling. Reminds me of how little they showed us of Madden 11, then Madden 11 came out and we saw that they’d done very little to the game on the field. I think this is about to be another one of those years.

      Based on what I played at E3, it’s very similar to NCAA 14 though defense is obviously better because the players are better. But I hear you on the lack of media…I’m not sure what’s going on.

        One thing I notice from the few off-camera videos that got onto the net, is that the collisions seem to not be as crisp as NCAA 14’s. I notice that in NCAA defenders fall into the momentum of their hit more often while in Madden they seem to be falling away more frequently.

        The other thing is that NCAA’s cutscenes are really on point, especially celebrations for sacks and TD’s, while Madden 25’s are just dead and basically nothing. For example, I saw a video of a 49er scoring, and all he did was fake spike and walk away with no emotion, no team celebration, nothing. That’s just too lame. They didn’t even try. It’s a shame because in the real NFL, there is so much emotion during sacks, INT’s, TD’s, and defensive stops, yet they’re putting that into NCAA and not Madden.

    I really like MUT and I hope that Madden 25 can add much of what we have seen from NCAA 14 and the new engine. This is going to be an interesting year, since the next gen consoles are being released and people will be switching over etc… I hope to see better gameplay from Madden25, statistics for players throughout the year in MUT and better ways to grind out coins for those who like to earn their team rather than pack outrageous prices for packs and hope to get lucky. It seems as it EA does want to help their user base, yet there are so many ways for greedy players to ruin the mode for everyone else. This is a community effort with a few if many bad apples waiting in the dark to scam or humiliate others.
