Since Madden made its way onto PC back in 2019, the long-running sports franchise gained even more popularity. While Madden is a household name, the inclusion of a new platform seems to have cemented that fact. Moving forward to the present, Madden is still a force in the world of football. Since the game falls in the live service category and is on even more platforms, things do have a higher chance of failing. This can be said about almost all live services games, and Madden isn’t immune either. With the initial release of Madden 24, players are reporting issues regarding the Superstar mode stating that it’s not working and they haven’t been able to fix it. To get you back in the game and beat those pesky New England Patriots, consider this reading this guide.
Madden 24: How to fix Superstar Mode not working
Before we go into depth, note that Madden 24 is in early access with the full release coming out on August 18th. This means many features may be absent during the trial period. But Superstar mode is a mechanic that’s in the early access of the game. Luckily, there are a few ways to fix Superstar Mode in Madden 24 to have it working again.
- Restarting the game – I’d recommend doing this step first before the others. Because when you restart the game, everything resets, resulting in Superstar showing up.
- Check the EA server status – Many errors relate to EA’s server’s being down such as Error Code 721. To check if the publisher’s servers are acting up, simply check the server for the respective platform you’re using.
- Make sure you’re connected to the internet – You may have already done this since this is the go-to step. But doing this may even solve the issue once and for all.
- Update Madden 24 – The Superstar mode could be behind a patch. To update Madden 24 just launch the game and the option should be in the main menu.
What is Superstar mode?
This acts like your journey or campaign in the game. Madden 24 allows you to create a player and go through all the trials and tribulations of an upcoming football star. The mode is a great way for players to get immersed and feel closer to the game. It can help players get invested in the game better, because everything they do in the Superstar mode matters in the big picture.
Superstar mode is the next best thing other than becoming an actual football player in the NFL.
