Madden NFL 13: 53-Man Roster Update Coming This Weekend


The most highly anticipated Madden NFL 13 roster update will be coming this weekend. EA Sports announced that their 53-man roster update will be released on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network on Saturday morning. The roster update will feature all of the new signings, releases, and trades that have happened since the release of Madden 13.

EA Sports will release the details of the roster update tomorrow. For now, the roster update will only apply to games outside of Connected Careers mode.

Next week, a Connected Careers update will be released that will allow players to choose between the updated 53-man roster or the 75-man pre-season rosters that came with the game when it will be released. This will give players the opportunity to go through their career with or without performing the first waves of roster cuts.

Here is how EA Sports explained the roster updates effect on Connected Careers mode:

The second Madden NFL 13 roster update will be available for download on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on Saturday morning. The update will reflect the final 53 man rosters of all 32 NFL teams. Details regarding the update will be available Friday morning.

The initial 75 man preseason rosters that were released with Madden NFL 13 will continue to be available for offline and online Connected Careers so that fans who want to manage the final roster of their team can do so. Final 53 man rosters will also be made available early next week for offline and online Connected Careers giving users the choice to use either roster when starting their Connected Careers experience.

Stay tuned to FanSided for details on the first roster update of the 2012 season which will be coming tomorrow.
