Madden 18 Update 1.08 Adds A Major New Feature And More Things

Posted time: Dec 12,2017


Madden NFL 18 update 1.08 is available now.

Months after the release of Madden NFL 18 in August, EA Sports continues to update and expand the game. Now the game's newest update - Update 1.08 is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, adding a major new feature and online stability improvements, and more other things.

The big new feature is called "Audibles on the Fly." As the name suggests, this allows players to make a change to an audible at any point when they are on offense or defense. EA says it will provide a further level of strategy for advanced-level players. The idea is that you'll be able to make faster adjustments when you see how the other side is queuing up.

You can access the "Audibles on the Fly" feature by selecting Plays from the Play Call screen. The following is a brief description written by EA about how the system works:

"Once you have selected a formation and are at the Play Call screen, simply press LT/L2 to bring up the Replace Audible menu. The replace audible menu shows the list of audibles that are currently set for the selected formation. It’s easy to use:

While at the replace audible menu, select what play in the audibles list you want to replace
Once a play is selected from the Replace Audible menu, you will then be taken to the replace play level of the Play Call screen where you can select the play you want to add to the active list of audibles for that set to replace your previous selection.
Once audibles have been selected, users will return to the primary Play Call screen to select the next huddle play. After breaking the huddle, users will have access to all of the new audibles via the audibles menu at the line of scrimmage for the current set."

EA also pointed out that you can always use an Audible on the Fly as many times as you want in the game, while you can not call an Audible on the Fly for formations that cannot be audible-d such as Wildcat. EA also confirmed that the upcoming Audibles on the Fly will work with all Madden 18's game modes including Ultimate Team. 

The new Madden 18 patch also makes general gameplay changes and fixes some of the lag that could occur in the Play Call screen. 

You can check out the full Patch Notes of Madden NFL 18 Update 1.08 below, which was written by EA Sports and published on December 11:
