Earlier today, EA Sports premiered their reveal trailer for Madden NFL 24. Now, we are starting to get a lot of details about features coming to Franchise mode in the upcoming game. From these earlier pieces of information, it sounds like this could be a great year for Franchise players.
The first big addition is one that will be prevalent throughout Madden NFL 24. This is the return of mini-games. These seem to be similar to the training camp mini-games from PS2 era of Madden games. You can play these mini-games in training camp and weekly strategy in Franchise mode. Doing well in these will allow you to upgrade your players.
The next major addition is expanded relocation options. This is something that players have been requesting for a while now. Madden NFL 24 will have “a streamlined team relocation feature with new cities, logos, and uniforms to create your own Franchise story.” These expanded options were promised to be in development several years ago, so it is nice to finally see them make their way into the game. It will be very interesting to see what new cities, logos, and uniforms will be added.
Free agency changes were a big point of emphasis for Franchise mode in Madden NFL 23. This year, the team is expanding on the new system that was implemented last year. Free Agency 2.0 will allow players to restructure player contracts. This has become a very common practice within the NFL to free up cap space. While it is unclear exactly how this system will work in-game, it is exciting that players will now be able to do this for themselves.
Other information released today included 50 new draft generators, trade logic tuning, six trade slots instead of three, new commissioner tools, and new coach talent trees. All of these seem like great additions to the mode. Of course, it will all come down to how well they are implemented. As more information is revealed, we will get a much better understanding of how all these new additions will work.
