Users with Madden NFL 21 on Xbox One can start installing the Xbox Series X version the day before the announcement on December 4. The PlayStation5 version is also available, but the errors found in the latest test mean that the game can only be played offline through Madden 21 Coins.
Last night, Electronic Arts and Polygon shared an early embargo setting plan, and then followed up this morning, mentioning the PlayStation 5 issue. EA said that he hopes that the PS5 version can be patched sometime today for online playback.
From now until next summer’s Madden NFL 22 release, anyone who purchases the Madden NFL 21 for PS5 or Xbox Series X and Series S can be upgraded for free. Polygon can now access Xbox SeriesX through the trial version provided to EA Play / Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
Using an account that has Madden NFL 21 installed for Xbox One, we can neither find the Series X version in the "Ready to Install" tab of the library, nor through the Xbox Marketplace. Some people will assume that the trial version downloaded now will only switch to a full license, not a limited time trial. However, considering all the difficulties so far, the best auxiliary method is to Buy Madden 21 Coins. Your mileage may vary.
