Madden 23: Field Passes And Season 1 Rewards
The X's and O's of Field Passes and the new MUT 23 rewards.
Madden NFL 23 Ultimate Team is back and it’s a promising step up from its "packs-only" glory days with new additions like the Field Pass. There are still sets and re-rolls to do, but Field Passes are a new reward track system that borrows the best bits of battle passes and team-based featured programs (i.e. NBA 2K, MLB The Show) to add even more incentives to XP grinds. They're free, of course, and each one can be leveled by playing Madden NFL 23 and completing in-game objectives to unlock exclusive players, coaches, uniforms, playbooks, strategy items, and even new packs.
Every Field Pass comes with different objectives and XP progression, with any earned rewards being awarded at their level, and there's three different types to progress through. Season Field Passes reset with every new MUT season and add specific missions as new theme programs are introduced; Competitive Field Passes focus on competitive modes such as H2H Seasons and MUT Champions, and they reset bi-weekly as rewards include Champs Entry Tokens. Program Field Passes add objectives with each new program (i.e. Headliners) and will feature changes throughout the 2022 NFL season to focus on new challenges that are based on new and ongoing promotions.
The catch? There isn't one. Field Passes are optional and complement each other with shared XP and specific missions that can be tracked and completed to level the current season's Field Pass. There are a lot of MUT freebies up for grabs so below is a quick look at Ultimate Team's Season 1 rewards.
Season 1 Field Pass Rewards
The Kick-Off Season of Madden Ultimate Team features over 60 different tiers of rewards, including 140,000 coins, Elite Packs, Pro Gameday Packs, Madden Legacy Playbooks, and theme team add-ons like the Miami Dolphins 1984 Classic Away Uniform. There are also five exclusive player items: 83 OVR Miles Sanders (HB), 85 OVR Zach Cunningham (MLB), 87 OVR CeeDee Lamb (WR), 89 OVR Stephon Gilmore (CB), and 91 OVR Dave Casper (TE), and whether you use pack pulls or not, all of the above can be earned before Season 1 ends at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET on Friday, October 14th.
Competitive Field Pass Rewards
Practice? The Competitive Field Pass is for Head 2 Head goons and the first reset offers 27 levels of new rewards with 220,000 coins, Touchdown Packs, and a random 89 OVR BND All-Madden Player. There's also three (3) MUT Champions Entry Tokens and a free 88 OVR Exclusive Tariq Woolen (CB) with an 89 Speed rating who unlocks at Level 22 (200 CP).
