A new update for Madden NFL 21 is coming very soon, and it sounds like a big one. The Madden Ultimate Team database Muthead recently discovered the patch notes for the latest update through Good Morning Madden, and it promises updates across gameplay, Ultimate Team, Franchise, the Yard, and more.

Perhaps one of the more notable fixes in the update focuses on the kick meter. As many players have discovered, including GameSpot's own reviewer, the kick meter tends to glitch out during field goal kicks, leading to a frustrating experience. This new patch should address this by some means. You can see a synopsis of the patch notes in the images below, while the changelog should be available when the update hits.

Muthead reported that the patch should launch at around 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET on Tuesday, September 22. This will be Madden 21's fourth major title update.

Madden NFL 21 has proven to be a big sales success so far, becoming the No. 1 overall best-selling game in the US for August 2020. In fact, this was the 21st year in a row that a Madden NFL game has been the best-seller in its release month.

Madden NFL 21 is coming to the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S, and people can get a free upgrade to the next-gen edition via EA's Dual Entitlement program.
