Madden 24 Superstar Beginner’s Guide
The latest edition of the popular Madden series has arrived with its brand-new Superstar Mode. And for those that might be new to the game mode or need a good refresher, a Madden 24 Superstar Beginner’s guide can go a long way.
With the Madden 24 release date now officially here, fans can finally check out the new Superstar Mode. With so much to learn and understand, a beginner’s guide on Madden 24’s Superstar Mode could come in handy for some of you. And if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve come just to the right place.
Spanning over the last decade, Madden has changed its song and dance with its single player modes several times. If anything, it’s almost like over these last ten years EA has been experimenting with different styles of single player modes to see what will work and what won’t. And quite frankly, the success rate for Madden’s single player modes has been far less than its shortcomings.
However, this year Madden 24 is promising a lot of new changes and improvements. And to assist you with having as smooth of a start as possible with its Superstar Mode, we’ve assembled a beginner’s guide that covers some important tips. Here’s what you need to know.
1. Pick Your Position & Team
The most important step before beginning your Superstar experience is picking your position (QB, RB, WR, LB, or CB), and if you choose to, your team. In Madden single player modes, some positions are just more enjoyable than others due to simply how much you’re in charge of for your team. So being a QB or LB tend to be two of the most popular positions to pick from because you’re responsible for the play-calling and are in charge of executing so many different tasks. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be a WR or CB, for example. But just be prepared that those positions won’t come with as much to do in comparison to the others.
In Madden 23’s Face of the Franchise, you did have the luxury of picking the team you wanted to sign with because your player was a fifth-year free agent looking to make a statement. But this year, Madden 24 Superstar Career Mode includes an NFL Combine where players start as rookies and have to do the best they can to determine their draft stock and position heading into the NFL Draft. Come Draft Day, you will be selected by a random team that is in need of your position.
However, seeing you do also have the choice to forgo the Draft process and pick your team, be sure to select one where you know you will be a starter if that’s what you opt to do. Position need is so important because if you select a team that has a lot of stars in your position, you’ll have to work twice as hard to outcompete them for playing time and opportunities.
2. Complete Weekly Side Activities & Challenges
Once you decide which position and team you want to play for and customise your player the way you want him to look on the field, fans have access to a home page where they can select everything for their player. In previous Superstar modes, fans had the opportunity to build their own players from scratch using a select amount of points to allocate for the skills available. But in this year’s Superstar Mode, you start with a 73 overall rating and have to work your way up the ranks by earning and applying Rep points.
As you can imagine, this is why it’s important to set weekly side activities and in-game challenges so you can not only gain boosts for that week but also increase the amount of Rep points you can then use to improve your star. Though most of the weekly side activities involve simulation, they do give your player particular boosts for the next game, allowing you to be better in certain areas you might want to focus on when executing your play. Unlike the side activities, challenges are more in your control, and the more of them you complete, the more Rep points you will unlock for that game.
3. Practice Through Drills & Mini Games
Depending on how acquainted you are with playing Madden and the position you choose, practicing goes a really long way. If you’re someone that’s in need of this Madden 24 Superstar Beginner’s guide, then we highly recommend you practice as much as possible. In Superstar Mode, you can simulate practices but will not receive the Gold Rep points reward. So playing through practices is an integral part of not only improving your game but also your player’s attributes considering the amount of Rep points you can unlock by doing so.
In Madden 23’s Face of the Franchise, Rep points were unlocked by completing practices and games. Well, lo and behold, that’s the case once again this year in Madden 24, highlighting why it’s important to play through all of your practice and games in order to secure the Rep points you need. And seeing that Madden 24 Superstar Mode has its own reward path of great prizes (including Rep points and boosts), practices and drills continue to be one of the best ways to level up your player and maximise your success.
4. Play Games & Improve Your Star
The best part of all is playing games – and yes, play them, don’t simulate. In Madden 24’s Superstar Mode, fans can select in-game challenges with various degrees of difficulty that reward them a certain amount of Rep points. If you’re looking to improve your superstar player and take him to the next levels of stardom, it’s super important to play the games and earn as much points as possible so you can achieve just that. Though the playing process can get a bit redundant, it’s in your best interest to play all the games so you can fulfill the potential of your player and make him the best he can be.
