Madden NFL 16 is now launched on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and gamers are able to get the American football title and experience all its core features with no limitations, with those who played in EA Access able to continue their progress.
The title has only been available for a limited number of hours, but some players have already been reporting issues with their experience, most of them relatively minor.
The best way to keep up to date with the problems linked to Madden NFL 16 is on the official site, but other fan communities are also gathering the details.
At the moment, the most reported issue is the one that takes away faces and jerseys from Ultimate Team players, which was also reported during EA Access, and that one is mostly solvable with a restart of the game or a reboot of the console on which it is played.
If a major Madden NFL 16 glitch appears in the coming days, then EA Sports will move fast to patch the game, which has long been one of its most important releases of the year, marking the moment when the AAA fall schedule starts.
