Xbox players have been encountering issues with the trial timer for Madden NFL 22 though, so this update could address some of those problems. The trial has been extended for Xbox players to make up for the lost time. However, this patch is also out on PS5, so there are likely other fixes and changes included. Given the update’s small size though, any fixes or stability improvements are likely minor.
According to EA, there are a few updates planned for Madden NFL 22 in the coming days. The game’s full release is on Friday, August 20, and EA has confirmed that Rookie Premiere is slated to release on that day.
