Xbox Game Pass subscribers enjoy early access to some of the premium games EA offers. If you play Madden NFL 22 using the Xbox Game Pass but encounter random or persistent crashes at this time, this troubleshooting guide will help you deal with the problem.

How to fix Xbox Game Pass Madden 22 Crashes?

If the Madden 22 (Xbox Game Pass version) won’t play properly, or if it keeps crashing, you need to figure out what’s causing the issue by doing some troubleshooting steps. Below are the troubleshooting steps  and solutions that you can try to help you fix the Madden 22 crashes.

Fix #1: Verify if your PC supports Madden 22.

If it’s your first time to play Madden 22 on your computer, the first thing that you need to make sure of is to check the game’s system requirements. While the new Madden 22 is not that demanding compared to other games, it still requires a decent hardware in order to run properly. If your hardware does not meet the minimum requirements, the game will most likely fail to run, or may crash randomly in the middle of gameplay. 

Check out the minimum requirements for Madden 22 below:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): Athlon X4 880K @4GHz or Equivalent
  • Processor (Intel): Core i3-6100 @3.7GHz or Equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): Radeon RX 460 or Equivalent
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): GeForce GTX 660 or Equivalent
  • DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Hard-drive space: 50 GB

If you want to run Madden 22 in better graphics settings, then you need to ensure that your PC meets the recommended requirements.

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): FX 8150 @3.6GHz or Equivalent
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5-3350 @3.40GHz or Equivalent
  • Memory: 12 GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): Radeon R9 270x or Equivalent
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): GeForce GTX 680 or Equivalent
  • DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Hard-drive space: 50 GB

Fix #2: Install updates.

Keeping the game and the software environment of your PC updated is important. Make sure that both the game and your software are running the latest version before you launch Madden 22 again.

Fix #3: Update your graphics card.

Another important software component that you need to keep updated is your graphics drivers. Drivers are like a mini-OS of a hardware component. If the graphics drivers on your machine are out-of-date, they may encounter bugs and glitches when playing new games. 

You can use any of the links below to update your graphics card:

Fix #4: Reboot your PC.

Sometimes, all it takes to fix game bugs is to simply refresh the system. Make sure to reboot your computer if Madden 22 crashes continue at this time.

Fix #5: Close background apps.

If a quick restart did not help things and Madden 22 is still crashing, pull up Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) and check if your PC is struggling to run the game. If a certain resource such as CPU or Memory keeps getting maxed out while the game is running, that may be a sign that your PC is having a hard time with the game. To fix the problem, you can close other non-essential programs like your web browser to see if that will improve the situation.

Some security software may also cause interference with games. If you have an antivirus running, try to see if closing it temporarily will fix the crashes and improve the general performance of the game. Be sure to turn on the security software afterwards.

Fix #6: Repair game files.

Corrupted or damaged game files can lead to crashing issues. You can check if the Xbox Game Pass app has corrupted data by repairing it. Here’s how:

  1. Press the Windows button at the lower left corner.
  2. Type in “xbox” and right click on the Xbox Game Pass app.
  3. Select App settings.
  4. Click on the Repair button.

Fix #7: Delete and reinstall.

If Madden 22 crashes continues after you’ve repaired the Xbox Game Pass app, the final fix that you can try is to delete and reinstall the game. Sometimes, a complete reinstall is needed in order to remove deeper system bugs.
