The new mechanic will provide each team specific bonuses when playing games at home and controlling the “Momentum Meter,” another new gameplay device in “Madden NFL 22.” The Packers’ advantage, nicknamed “Go Pack Go! The Frozen Tundra,” will give Green Bay a major momentum advantage and significantly hinder the visiting team in two important ways at Lambeau Field.
The Packers will gain more momentum while the away team gains less. With the new “Momentum Meter” added to the gameplay this year, the momentum swing at Lambeau Field in favor of the Packers could be all that more important.
The visiting team will also get tired faster and have a harder time changing direction.
A faster rate of fatigue will mean less effective opposing players over 60 minutes of gameplay. And those players will also have more issues changing direction, a nod to the problems visiting players often have playing in the elements – like snow – at Lambeau Field (see: the Tennessee Titans last December).
Here is how EA Sports explained the new mechanic: “Each NFL team is equipped with one extra unique M-Factor that will only be available when that team is defending its own home turf. For teams playing at home, their Home Field Advantage allows them one extra M-Factor to unlock via momentum, but also will be the first to be disabled if the road team captures the momentum first.”
Good luck beating the Packers at Lambeau Field, gamers.
