Madden 10 Ultimate Team in January
Written Wednesday, November 04, 2009 By Alan PettitView author's profile
Those familiar with the DLC achievements from last year's FIFA installment will be quite familiar with this feature. Essentially though, you'll begin with a Bronze pack of cards with which to make an online team. As you use those players you'll earn credit which you can then use to purchase better packs of Silver and Gold cards to improve your team with higher rated players, including an option to use real money to get more packs if you're impatient. There will also be rare "Legend" cards that will have current players using not their current stats, but the stats they had when they were at their prime.
This content is due sometime in January, and again, will be free to all. No word on any achievements, but since the FIFA version had them and Madden has already had one batch of achievements, it is a strong possibility.
