It’s normal for EA Sports being always in the focus of criticism from users, since it has earned the reputation of being a very intransigent company and not very participative in its decisions with their users, despite the success of games like Madden NFL 21 or FIFA 21.
However, it appears that lately they have been reversing their past mistakes and have started to change their policies regarding some titles to benefit players.
Regarding the above, EA Sports has revealed that players who have purchased Madden NFL 21 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be able to redeem their next-gen editions at no cost, a decision that has been really unexpected for some players and experts in this topic.
Specifically, this means that every player that have bought Madden NFL 21 to play in PS4 or Xbox One will have the chance to play on their new console without having to spend a single dollar in the process.
Without a doubt, great news for those who save money daily to buy MUT Coins and build that beloved team that they always wanted to have.
How can we claim the PS5 or Xbox Series X version of Madden NFL 21?
In order To access the next-gen version of Madden NFL 21, you only have to open the account with which the game was related on your old console to your new console.
Next, you must access the corresponding store and look for the game in the catalog to begin its free download.
If you entered with the correct account, the store should not indicate that you have to buy the game, but instead will show the option to download immediately.
On the other hand, this ‘Dual Entitlement’ option will also be available to those who have purchased the game in physical format.
To achieve this, you just have to insert the game disc and follow the instructions to download the game to the hard drive of your new console.
In the case of PS5, to be able to download Madden NFL 21 from a PS4 disc, the user must have the PS5 version that does have a disc player.
Likewise, EA clarified that this option will only be available before the launch of the next title in the series, Madden NFL 22. So if you plan to acquire the title second-hand, we recommend doing it before the next one is released.
Madden NFL 21 Ultimate Team inventory content and Madden Points will carry over from one version to another, so you don’t have to be afraid of losing your MUT Coins or the players of your team in this transfer.
Also, progress in certain Franchise modes can also be imported from the current generation to the new generation, you just have to check them out and be careful to transfer the data in the correct way.
Madden NFL 21 will hit the stores on PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 28, 2020. You can play the game on August 25, 2020 if you buy the Early Access. Madden NFL 21 release date on PS5 and Xbox Series X hasn’t been confirmed yet.
