House Rules is back this week with a new, limited time (48 hrs) event.

MUT Superstars Program Overview

MUT Superstars comes to MUT… in the middle of the night. MUT Superstars brings upgraded players to highlight the Superstar and X-Factor abilities that are brand new in Madden 20. The biggest positive, to me, is that these MUT Superstars are going to allow us to test a lot of the abilities without spending an absurd amount of Training. Take a deep breath and let’s dive in.

Refresher: X-Factor abilities require you to complete in-game objectives to get your player “in the zone.” Superstar abilities are passive abilities, meaning they are always active in-game.
