Madden 20 Superstar-X Factor Player Abilities Explained

Superstar X-Factor players are a brand new addition for Madden 20. We've never had players with unique abilities and bonuses in the base version of the game before, and it really makes the elite players stand out from the pack.

When you're playing with a team that has a Superstar X-Factor player, it's important that you activate their ability as soon as possible. The Superstar players have been designed in Madden 20 so that there abilities deliberately disrupt the flow of the game, and make your opponent change their gameplan.

When you've got a Superstar X-Factor player with their ability activated, it's important that you play around that ability. So for example if Von Miller's ability is activated, then you're going to want to send him on consecutive blitz plays, to maximise the chance of his ability disrupting the throwing pattern of the QB.
