The fourth patch for Madden NFL 13 is set to go live tomorrow, Nov. 29, with new features for the Ultimate Team mode and some bug fixes, reports Joystiq.
Ultimate Team players will now be able to create five different lineups from their card collection. They'll also enjoy improved, "more nuanced" roster management, according to developer EA Tiburon. Player sorting by position will be more granular, while a new screen will offer an at-a-glance look at players' active boosts. In addition, Ultimate Team will now offer quick collections, which provide bonuses for completing card collections, and the option to play games with two-minute quarters.
