Madden 13 Title Update #2 Comes Out Tomorrow Along with News To Edit Players in Future

Today we got news that a 2nd Title update to Madden NFL 13 will be out tomorrow to update and fix numerous stability issues, GameFace Improvements, and to add an instant start option when creating your player in Connected Careers.  That’s not the real news though.  The real news is that based on “Community Feedback” Developers are looking to patch in the ability to edit players in another title update.

Here’s what EA SPORTS said on their Madden Facebook Page.

We’d also like to remind fans who have been asking about the ability to edit players and rosters in Connected Careers that based on your feedback, the development team is currently exploring the potential option to include additional functionality in Madden NFL 13 in an upcoming title update. We’ll update you with more information in the coming weeks after the team has time to investigate and assess the situation.

This comes as welcomed news to the thousands of fans who felt betrayed by EA SPORTS’ decision to leave that particular feature out of this years’ game.  I really feel that if they couldn’t do it, they wouldn’t even said they were looking into it.  So I’m very hopeful that the Madden team can get this in.

I’m still not sure if you’ll be able to edit ratings but I really think that this update will enable guys to edit equipment and numbers, which is still a welcomed back addition to Madden NFL 13.

What are your thoughts on EA’s announcement of adding editing players back into the game?

  • ehh

    I want player editing NOW! (Slams fists onto desk!)

  • Brantleymassey

    What about fixing online communities

    • Shopmaster

      What is wrong with Online Communities?

      • http://www.facebook.com/steve.reynolds.52035 Steve Reynolds

        People QUIT and do not receive a loss. People have been waiting til there is 1 second left to quit to avoid getting a loss. I have played over 40 community games and only have 2 wins because people QUIT to keep their record intact.

        • Shopmaster

          Sounds like you are in the wrong Online Community. I’m not saying that as trying to be funny, but I don’t play with quitters and if people were doing that in my Community they would get booted. I can see how that could be frustrating though.

          • http://www.facebook.com/steve.beaver.503 Steve Beaver

            The OTHER team quits. There is no search functionality to find competition with less than 5% DNF, and the drops…omg…people get dropped all the time out of Community. My Community is 6-5 when in reality, we should be 20-5. Please either give us search function or make the quitters get losses and the team that didnt quit gets partial stats, points, and win. My community thinks we can make a run at #1 but we can’t ever get anyone to finish a game against us.

          • Shopmaster

            Oh, you are talking about Online Team Play (OTP) in the Community.


    Thank goodness! I love the way this new Madden plays! I love the game face option! I love CC accept the fact that I have been a back up on the Niners behind Alex Smith for four seasons because he is always 1 point better than me. I didn’t buy this game to only play practices and I certainly didn’t buy this game to see what Matt Lienhart’s career is like. This was borderline unforgivable in my opinion. Especially when everything else is so amazing.

  • Hoju

    Shop, can u find out if they will patch in the ability for us to choose the uniform that CPU wears in our offline career? When I play, I want to choose what uni my CPU opponent will be in. Otherwise I will never see these great throwbacks and alternates. Thanks!

    • Shopmaster

      I’ll see what I can find out.

  • smitty

    thank god. do you think will it be retro active for active CCs? or only new ones started after the update?

    • Shopmaster

      If you mean player editing, I believe it will be retro active. Not sure, don’t even know if they are going to do it.

    What the stability fixes in patch updates ?i can’t get a answer ! Becuse the ccm is unplayable ? Great idea but all it need to be better is is for the ai to play like play now and the demo ! Why do they play different ? I played with sliders on all madden and cranked theres up and still with my eyes closed weather it’s pesters on ,mjd, foster ect they will not breat a run of more than 8 yards or gain more the. 50 or 60 yards on like 30 attempts ! The ccm is boring I stop playing it! Also the top passing teams saints , pats, green bay ect . Just run run run .. . And like I said they won’t get yards anyways so I have no challenge me or anyone against the CPU ? Why is it different than play now ai?

    • Shopmaster

      Not sure. I haven’t encountered that at all but it may be because I play in user leagues and don’t play the CPU that much in CCM.

      • http://www.facebook.com/simpson.brown Simpson Brown

        Yeah if you ever get time you should try it . The ai sucks . But if u know any good all sim league that last more than a year let me know thanks .

        • Shopmaster

          We have a couple of Connected Careers going on that are Sim, click the forums button above.

  • max

    how do you get the patch to do player editing?

    • Shopmaster

      The patch for player editing has not come out yet. EA SPORTS just mentioned that they are looking into it right now.

    What about the ability to do a Fantasy Draft within your own franchise/career as a coach. Also what about adding multiplayer in CC. This was one of the great parts of the game. Get a friend together, fantasy draft a team (WHAT REAL FAN DOESN’T WANT TO SEE THEIR OWN TEAM) then sit there and play the games together. Just doesn’t seem right that All of that was taken away all at once especially when the reason the games sell is because people like them lol. These are things that I noticed and I think that everyone else would want to see. All seem like they could be patched into the game. Please help Madden fans out here. We paid for this game for entertainment, not to sit around and hate that we bought the game wondering if we should buy Madden 14 next year. I have been a loyal Madden buyer since 2003. Also want tot be able to fully edit players in cc mode. Like moving players positions around JUST LIKE THEY WOULD IN REAL LIFE. Lemme know what you guys think.

    • Shopmaster

      I totally understand what you are saying. I wouldn’t say thats the reason people buy the game but people do like that feature. I also don’t think Fantasy Draft can be patched in, just too much in my opinion, but again I don’t make video games … lol. If you paid for Madden and Fantasy Draft or multiplayer CCM, then I’d take your Madden back or sell it. I think the game is good enough for me to look past those things, but I understand that ppl buy for different reasons.

  • Justin

    I want a fantasy draft. That’s it. That’s one of the top 3 reasons I love this game. One of the only reason I bought this game. Fantasy draft in Madden = the most important part besides gameplay. You got gameplay, now add the fantasy draft and the 80% of fans who’s pissed off will be happy and think this is the greatest game ever.

    Add fantasy draft. While you’re at it, add audibles in connected careers and also make it so conventional play calling sticks in connected careers.

    • Shopmaster

      Well that’s your opinion and I respect that but believe me when I tell you that Fantasy Draft is one of the lowest used feature in Madden in recent years. I don’t think that’s the reason that it was left out but to say that it’s more important than Franchise Mode, Super Star Mode, and Online Play is just reaching in my opinion.

  • http://twitter.com/Twinsstretch DigDug

    i want franchise back or change the way career mode is so bad and make it like the old franchise mode.

  • Tony

    2 PLAYER COACH MODE GAMES. Literally rhe most fun my brother and i have ever had playing those games and its been taken away from us.

    • Shopmaster

      I agree, my brother and I had fun also. They need to add that back and I can assure you they know.

  • Paul L

    I do hope that EA Sports team will follow through and deliver on the functional changes to allow player/roster editing and creation of player in offline CCM Coach Mode. Other than that I love everything else about the game including the physics engine.

  • anthony

    How Bout the players ability to retire when he wants to or is not producing rather than automatically after 15 years I think the option to expand the career longer is important for example jerry rice and favre played til 40 years old..

  • kevin

    Any news if they plan on patching in offline multiplayer career mode?


    I’ve always looked forward to Madden release day every year since I can remember. The edit player feature is important to me and other gamers because it helps you to personalize the game -changing player positions, equipment etc. Glad to hear it will HOPEFULLY be added to the game soon

  • steph

    how do i do this update?? do i have to dl it somehow from my 360? please help. thanks 😀

  • marius

    i play madden to create myself and couple others player then edit my favorite players and put them all on one team and play a franchise with them. its stupid that they took that away whats the point of a career mode if you cant edit it and make it personal.

  • forget madden

    The only reason i bought madden 13 was for the online franchise i feel robbed.

  • shaunmadden

    One of the top three features; the ability to use custom playbook in offline ccm. Come on update that.

  • disgusted

    i really dont care its the gamesplay issues im worried about

  • Joe

    In my ccm jay cutler was injured and he was the only QB on there roster, what happened to requirements? They did not sign another QB. What happened to the A.I. For the computer drafting?

  • Danny

    Ok Tuesdays deadline has already past…where is my ability to edit? No patch has come out That’s the reason I bought this game when I found this piece of information out

    • Shopmaster

      It’s out now for the XBOX and tomorrow for the PS3.

  • Zach

    Fantasy draft!!!! And defense assignments please!!!!! I get “the best on the best” but overall rating isn’t always the best matchup. Also fix rating changes from depth chart in game and out of game

  • IJD719

    The ability to edit is there, but whichever player you edit shrinks into a skinny shell of himself afterwards. That kinda sucks, but at least my new QB with the Steelers is no longer number 12.
