As of this morning, the "Ultimate Feast" has begun! Many of you have seen these new food collectible cards in packs, and I'm sure you're wondering what they're for. EA will be releasing a full Thanksgiving content blog post later today (now live here), but here's what we know so far of what you can expect from Madden Ultimate Team this Thanksgiving:
From now though the duration of this promo, all Pro Packs will have an Ultimate Feast food item collectible in them. These come in four different tiers: Bronze (Vegetables), Silver (Sides), Gold (Proteins), and Elite (Dessert). Here's a full list of all the new food item collectibles:
|Elite -- Dessert||Gold -- Proteins||Silver -- Sides||Bronze -- Veggies|
|Pumpkin Pie||Ham||Mashed Potatoes||Green Beans|
|Apple Pie||Stuffed Lobster||Dinner Rolls||Corn on the Cob|
|Pecan Pie||Lamb||Corn Bread||Salad|
|Mince Pie||Oven-Roasted Turkey||Mac N' Cheese||Potato Salad|
|Chocolate Cream Pie||Smoked Turkey||Gravy||Glazed Carrots|
|Cinnamon Apples||Deep-Fried Turkey||Stuffing||Peas|
|Chocolate Pudding||Duck||Sweet Potatoes||Stuffed Mushrooms|
Now you're probably wondering what you can do with these food items. Starting Wednesday, there will be new feast collections. There will be five of these in total: 1 on Wednesday, 2 on Thursday, 1 on Friday, and 1 on Saturday. Each will require some number of food item collectibles. The reward for completing a feast collection is a Cornocopia pack, which contains approximately 20 items. Each Cornocopia pack guarantees a Thanksgiving legend who has had a memorable Thanksgiving performance during their career. As a bonus, if you're able to complete one of these new collections within 24 hours of their release, you'll earn an additional 15,000 coins.
The first feast collection dropping Wednesday is the "Lean & Mean Thanksgiving" collection. Here's the list of cards you need so you can prepare:
- Green Beans
- Mac n Cheese
- Sweet Potatoes
- Stuffed Lobster
- Roasted Turkey
- Pumpkin Pie
- Apple Pie
- Mince Pie
- Cinnamon Apples
Here's a list of the Thanksgiving legend players you can expect. They are auctionable and tradeable according to EA's MUT website.
- Emmitt Smith (DAL) -- 5 x Award Winner (’90, ’92, ’94, ’96, ’02)
- Barry Sanders (DET) -- 1997 Thanksgiving Classic MVP
- Randy Moss (MIN) -- 2000 Thanksgiving Day MVP
- Darrelle Revis (NYJ) -- 2010 Pudding Pie award
- Robert Griffin III (WAS) -- 2012 Galloping Gobbler award
Additionally, there will be daily solo challenges which reward 500 coins and a Thanksgiving pack from Wednesday to Saturday. These packs will reward 3 random food item collectibles to help you complete the feast collections. You can earn Thanksgiving packs with one food item each from H2H Seasons milestones as well. At this point all of the feast collections will expire 12/2.
If you have any questions about any of this, leave a comment. We'll be having another Q&A with a Dev post tonight to get as many of your questions answered by the MUT Dev Team as possible. Happy MUT Thanksgiving!
