“We wanted to create a new way for players to express themselves and take on small-sided football in an arcade-style experience that’s completely new to Madden,” said Seann Graddy, Executive Producer of Madden NFL 21.

There are four The Yard locations right now, but we expect EA to drop more throughout the year.
Within The Yard you will need to build an avatar. Your avatar will play both offense and defense, and you’ll need to pick a prototype to style him in.
However, your prototype isn’t position-locked, you could choose to be a QB but with a WRs prototype. Given the trick plays involved in The Yard, that might be a good choice!
You can get X-Factors, Abilities, and then assign skill points to build your avatar up.
Each prototype comes with a unique X-Factor that you can’t change. You are granted a few Abilities to start but will soon be able to unlock more. Skill points are earned by leveling up the prototype you are using. You can use them to accentuate traits.
