One of the biggest issues for consumers looking to buy a Playstation 4 or Xbox One this holiday will be the dilemma of waiting to purchase a game on next-gen, or buying the game twice. If you’re having this debate regarding Madden NFL 25, however, you’ll be happy to know that EA SPORTS is taking care of that issue.
Fans who purchase Madden NFL 25 on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 will be given the ability to carry over their Ultimate Team items to the next-gen version of the game. This transfer will only work from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, or Playstation 3 to Playstation 4.
We’ve listed the details below of how the process actually works for Madden NFL 25.
Madden NFL 25, which debuts in stores on August 27, is offering the opportunity to transfer up to 1,100 Madden Ultimate Team items onto next-gen consoles, giving you a head-start in building your squad.
Players who log into Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles with their Origin Account and respective Xbox LIVE or Sony Entertainment Network accounts will be able to bring over 100 active items (55 players, 45 additional items) as well as up to 1000 reserve items from their games on current generation systems*. These players and items can still be used in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game as well, but cannot be auctioned or traded.
Furthermore, Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition players who participate in this offer will also be granted six Madden Ultimate Team All Pro packs for use in their Ultimate Team on next-gen consoles.
With the Ultimate Team option in the Madden series drawing tons of fan interest, it makes sense for EA SPORTS to ensure there’s a carry-over feature for fans in Madden NFL 25.
