EA Sports announced this year's 4th of July content in an official blog post this morning. The new content runs today through July 5th.
The new 4th of July content is based around 8 new sets: a coach set, 6 legend player item sets, and a 4th of July Master set. To complete these sets, you will need Independence Day badges and Team Legend collectibles. These can be obtained from packs and special solo challenges. Additionally, you will receive a free Independence Day badge each day you log in between today and July 5th.
The 4th of July Coach set requires a total of 5 Independence badges and rewards one of three possible 4th of July coaches: Jeff Fischer, Tom Coughlin, or Ron Rivera.
Each of the 6 4th of July Legend sets require multiple Independence badges and 5 Legend collectibles for the specific team. They all reward a single 99 OVR 4th of July Legend player item.
The 4th of July Master set will require all 6 of the 99 OVR 4th of July Legends and it pays out 6 Lombardi Packs along with an 85 OVR Jared Allen. A single 85 OVR player item might not seem like much, however, it will carry over into Madden Ultimate Team 16 to give you a head start on building your defensive line.
As always, we will be updating our database with these new 4th of July players as they are released. What do you think of this year's 4th of July program?
