Madden 23: Field Passes And Season 1 Rewards

Madden NFL 23 Ultimate Team is back and it’s a promising step up from its “packs-only” glory days with new additions like the Field Pass. There are still sets and re-rolls to do, but Field Passes are a new reward track system that borrows the best bits of battle passes and team-based featured programs (i.e. NBA 2K, MLB The Show) to add even more incentives to XP grinds. They’re free, of course, and each one can be leveled by playing Madden NFL 23 and completing in-game objectives to unlock exclusive players, coaches, uniforms, playbooks, strategy items, and even new program packs.

Every Field Pass comes with different objectives and XP progression, with any earned rewards being awarded at their level, and there’s three different types to progress through. Season Field Passes reset with every new MUT season and add specific missions as new theme programs are introduced; Competitive Field Passes focus on competitive modes such as H2H Seasons and MUT Champions, and they reset bi-weekly as rewards include Champs Entry Tokens. Program Field Passes add objectives with each new program (i.e. Headliners) and will feature changes throughout the 2022 NFL season to focus on new challenges that are based on new and ongoing promotions.

The catch? There isn’t one. Field Passes are optional and complement each other with shared XP and specific missions that can be tracked and completed to level the current season’s Field Pass. There are a lot of MUT freebies up for grabs so below is a quick look at Ultimate Team’s Season 1 rewards.
