Madden NFL 21 will feature The Yard
New backyard football mode included in this year's game
EA SPORTS has announced a new way to play in Madden NFL 21 with The Yard - a dynamic mode for players to experience backyard football with fast-paced, small-sided gameplay.
In this mode, players will be able to create a custom, one-of-a-kind avatar to outfit in gear; pull off trick plays, such as behind the back throws and double passes; and win in new field locations around the globe.
Gameplay in The Yard will center on 6-on-6 backyard-inspired football with the option for players to play solo, online co-op vs. the CPU or online head-to-head multiplayer in teams of one, two, or three players.
Madden NFL 21 is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available worldwide August 28, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Origin and Steam. In addition, EA SPORTS will offer Dual Entitlement, creating ways for players who purchase either an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 to upgrade their copy of Madden NFL 21 from prior generation Xbox One or PlayStation 4 platforms at no additional cost.
